Is Chucky a Doll or a Puppet?
Chucky, or Charles Lee Ray, is the main antagonist of the Child’s Play slasher film series who transfers his soul into a “Good Guy” doll and constantly tries to change into a human body while bleeding out from a gunshot wound. He uses a voodoo ritual to transfer his soul to escape Detective Mike Norris. As an inanimate object, Chucky is later given to young Andy Barclay and begins terrorizing the family even as they realize he is alive. Nevertheless, Chucky doesn’t commit his first crime after turning into a doll. On the contrary, he has always been a criminal and suffered from a severe case of sadism and homicidal tendencies since childhood.
Was Chucky Based on a True Story?
No, Chucky isn’t necessarily based on a true story. However, Don Mancini, the creator of the Child’s Play movie series, was inspired by a supposedly true story when creating it, namely the story of Robert the Doll, whose owner was a Florida painter named Robert Eugene Otto. Rumor has it that the doll was given to Otto in 1903 by a woman who served his family. She practiced voodoo and invented the doll to get revenge for being abused by the family. Robert Eugene Otto loved the doll so much that he began speaking to it in the first person and calling it by his own name, using Eugene for himself.
He also accused his doll of being responsible for strange occurrences in the house such as rearranging furniture or destroying toys. Numerous other accounts state that Robert the Doll was able to walk around freely and communicate as if it were alive. As an adult, Eugene eventually moved and even married. However, when his parents died, he was given control of their home, which gave him the ability to contact Robert again. After Robert Eugene Otto died in 1974, Myrtle Reuter bought the house.
Among a number of other strange reports, Reuter also claimed that the doll was capable of independent movement. She eventually gave the doll to the Fort East Martello Museum in Key West, Florida.
