After Pinson homeowner Kendra Walden took pictures of Jackson’s Chucky wandering the street and posted them on Facebook, she shared that the sight “nearly” gave her a heart attack. The pictures quickly went viral.

For those who don’t know, Chucky was the name of the evil doll that haunted the 1988 smash film Child’s Play, which is still regarded as one of the scariest horror films of all time.

The doll was noticed by Kendra and her colleague as they were traveling down a mountainous residential street in Pinson. He watched them as they drove past him while he waited for the car to pass.

Within a week after she posted some photos to Facebook, they had been shared over 100,000 times.

The “real world” A 5-year-old boy named Chucky from Alabama was identified by his mother

Jackson, a 5-year-old boy, was the walking nightmare doll, and his mother, Britnee Reed, recognized him when one of her coworkers showed her the pictures.

Britnee revealed to WDHN that her coworker had shown her the picture and claimed that her son would act in the manner depicted in it. She was shocked to see her son Jackson in the pictures when she first glanced at them. She uttered:


I zoomed the image and exclaim, “Oh my goodness, that’s my child.”

Jackson was being cared for by her mother, who she instantly called. She learned that her mother had assisted Jackson in donning the costume before he left on his routine neighbourhood watch.

Britnee said that while they occasionally get criticism on social media, the majority of fans adore Jackson and his spooky image. Some people have even invited him to attend birthday celebrations, which he has respectfully declined.

The 5-year-old claimed that he was pleased with the entire situation and that he had succeeded in frightening a great deal of people online. In his words to WDHN reporters:

β€œTell them I was a good Chucky, and make sure you send my grandma a copy of the pictures, too.”

On Facebook, Jackson’s photographs have received more than 104k shares and over 50k likes.

Who is Chucky? The saga of how the infamous haunted doll came to be

According to legend, Robert, a real-life doll, served as the inspiration for Chucky. In Key West, Florida, in 1906, Robert Eugene Otto received Robert the Doll as a present from his family’s housekeeper. It is thought that the maid was unhappy with the family and turned to voodoo to curse the doll.

According to rumors, the doll was originally nicknamed Gene and later changed to Robert.

Ranker claimed that Robert Eugene Otto cherished the 40-inch doll and took it everywhere, but that things gradually deteriorated as odd occurrences began to take place in the Otto household.

Deep, unknown sounds and eerie chuckling would be heard coming from Robert’s bedroom, according to his parents. Additionally, they could hear someone running about within the house.


The situation worsened when they overheard young Robert screaming in his room and griping about how the doll had ruined his toys. While the family was abroad, neighbours claimed to have seen a boy in the house who resembled the doll. The house developed a reputation for being “haunted” as the stories persisted.

Robert cherished the doll despite everything till his death from old age. The doll was then hidden away in the home’s attic, where it was subsequently discovered by the daughter of the new owners.

The doll allegedly resumed hurling objects before finding its way to the East Martello Museum, where it is now stored behind a layer of safety glass.

Visitors are welcome to examine the doll in the museum, but are strongly advised not to photograph it and to seek its permission if they do so.

Internet viewers are sure that the movie is based on Eugene’s doll even though Child’s Play director Tom Holland has not verified any connection between Chucky and Robert.
