Charles Lee Ray, the “Lakeshore Strangler.”
Chucky – a “Good Guy” doll was the closest thing for killer
Charles Lee Ray to transfer his evil soul into before he died in a police
shoot-out. But Charles Lee Ray doesn’t want to be a lame doll forever.
his mission is to find the first human to reveal his true identity to,
so he can get his soul the hell out of a doll's body and back into that of a
human. Revealing himself to the first human he can find,
six-year old Andy Barclay, Chucky relentlessly pursues Andy so he can inhabit
his human body. Of course, Chucky still enjoys his other favorite pastime: murdering
innocent people along the way.
Chucky is a cheeky, mean-spirited little doll-man. Like Freddy Krueger, Chucky
is quick witted and has a sense of humor, though thoroughly evil. To put it this
way, if Chucky was
doing stand-up in a comedy club, you wouldn’t want to throw a tomato at him.
Chucky also has quite the potty mouth – uses the f-word frequently and
Whatever strikes Chucky’s sick and twisted imagination, he will use. Mainly
knives, though an axe will do as well (right).
other weapon is his “family.” His lady-love, Tiffany joins Chucky
in murder sprees in Bride of Chucky and Seed of Chucky.
Chucky manages to trick his gender-confused, split-personality of a son, Glen
(left) to commit murder. Glen is so traumatized, his murderous side,
Glenda emerges and kills some more.
Chucky has no choice but to wear what was manufactured for him by the Play
Pals Toys Company: blue overalls over a multi-colored striped shirt and
a pair of cool red sneakers. After so much carnage, his overalls are a bit
tattered and torn. However, style-wise the outfit matches his wild flame-red
hair and ice-blue marble eyes perfectly.

was the first person Chucky revealed his true identity to.
transfer his soul into Andy’s body via a voodoo ritual
chant. For ten years, Chucky has hunted poor Andy down, even all the way
to military school in Child’s Play III (Justin Whalin as the older Andy,
to Andy. Many fruitless attempts at transferring his soul
into little Andy.

Tiffany. Tiffany is yin to Chucky’s yang. But like most marriages, it’s a
love/hate thing, however with Chucky and Tiffany it is literally a
love/hate thing….to the death. A modern-day Bonnie and Clyde...if they were
is voiced by Jennifer Tilly (left).
The lovely, yet baby-voiced Jennifer Tilly provides additional comic
relief in Bride of Chucky and Seed of Chucky. Her
"special" voice has earned her a lot of voice work.
You can hear
her in the following:
Stuart Little, Family Guy, Hey Arnold!, Home on the Range and Lil' Pimp
Now where have we
Bound, The Haunted
Mansion, Liar, Liar, Dancing at the Blue Iguana, and The Fabulous Baker Boys to

great character actor, Brad Dourif. Remember One Flew over the
Cuckoo’s Nest? He played the sad Billy Bibbit. It was
Dourif's big break, earning him a Golden Globe Award for Best Acting Debut, a
British Academy Film Award for Best Supporting Actor, and an Oscar nomination
for Best Supporting Actor.
Brad Dourif trivia:
Was considered for the role of the Riddler in Batman Forever.
He played Grima Wormtongue in The Lord of the Rings.
Plays Sheriff Leigh Brackett in Rob Zombie’s remake of Halloween.
the earlier series, a nice adult human body would be at the top of Chucky’s
Christmas list. A child’s body would do as well. It seems very likely that Santa
would NOT be delivering that
present. In Bride of Chucky, the coveted Heart of Damballa
– a mystical voodoo necklace Chucky wore the night he became a doll, would help
return Chucky and Tiffany back to human form. That would be the perfect present.
Unlike Barbie, Chucky is human-like – has mostly human
characteristics, not to mention he is alive. Can’t say that about a
Cabbage Patch doll or Barbie’s measurements. The longer Charles Lee Ray
remains in the doll’s body, the more “human” he becomes. He can think, carry a
conversation, walk, run, bleed, and even procreate. All for $5. Anyhow,
Chucky is so much more fun than Barbie or a Cabbage Kid!
If Barbie was to turn into a real, living human, her measurements would make
her: 5’9”, 36-18-33!
What does the color of the signature on the
left butt cheek of each mass market Cabbage Patch Kid mean? The year they
Blue is the most common color, which means they
were made in 1985.
Chucky has some great lines. Probably better than Freddy Krueger. The following
is a sampling.
“Hi, I'm Chucky. Wanna play?”
"I'm your friend to the end."
"Hidey-ho, ha ha ha."
“Now it's time to play ‘Hide the soul.’”
“Chucky's gonna be a bro.”
“Nothin' like a good strangulation to get
the circulation goin'.”
“I am Chucky, the killer doll! And I dig
“Just shut up and drive before I kick
your fucking teeth in!”
“Fine! Kill me! I'll be back! I always
come back! But dying is such a bitch!”
“Who the fuck is Martha Stewart?”
“Don't fuck with the Chuck.” –
All-time favorite line. Period.
