Storyline

Amy Kramer's ventriloquist dummy, Dennis, keeps losing his head, literally, and Amy has been pestering her Dad for weeks to get her a new one. Little does she know, that when he does, and he does, she will regret it deeply. Amy's Dad brings home a new dummy called Slappy, and on the first night after his arrival, a series of strange pranks begin to happen, that everyone in the family seems to deny playing. However, Amy begins to realize the truth, though no one will believe her, and it may soon be too late... Written by Anonymous

Nobody is happy when Slappy gets chatty.
12 March 2013 | by (Edinburgh.) – See all my reviews

A lot of people rate this Goosebumps episode as one of their all-time favourites and it's not hard to see why. It nicely balances the scares with the less unnerving moments while everything builds towards an enjoyable finale with a great punchline.

Maggie Castle plays Amy Kramer, a young girl who is given a new ventriloquist dummy by her father one day. The dummy is called Slappy and she's quite impressed with it, at least until it starts to insult those around her and keep hold of her hand to make her look like the guilty party. Yes, Slappy is one of those spooky dummies that's actually alive.

Slappy is a creepy, memorable central character and, I'm sure, one indelibly etched on the memories of a generation of young Goosebumps fans. Maggie Castle does well enough in the role of Amy and Caterina Scorsone, Andrew Sardella, Gina Clayton and Richard Fitzpatrick all do well as her family members, but this is all about Slappy being lively and mean.

Ron Oliver directs and keeps the tone just right. It gets dark and scary, of course, but then always gets to a lighter scene just in time to allow some respite. Until the tense ending.

If you only see one episode of Goosebumps in your life then this is one of the best that you could give your time to.
