Did You Know?
For every story directly based on an R.L. Stine
book (not "Tangled Web" or "Four Eyes" which were inspired by certain ideas in "Liar Liar" and "Visitors", respectively, nor "Scareful What You Wish for" nor "School Spirit", though the latter did share characters with "Full Moon Halloween", which was book-based), at least one character, usually a supporting character such as a friend but occasionally a protagonist, had a name and gender switch. Most notably the three main characters in "My Name is Evil" had initials that matched their book counterparts, but changed from girls to boys (the best friends dropping from triplets to a pair of friends who were probably not related).
