Spirit Halloween’s Uncle Charlie Animatronic Back for 2021 Online Only

After being teased with numerous hints in recent weeks, a subscriber email from Spirit Halloween today has confirmed that the Uncle Charlie animatronic is back for 2021, not in stores but available online only now.

Produced by Seasonal Visions International (SVI), the Uncle Charlie animatronic was first released by Spirit Halloween back in 2010, and was then brought back with a few upgrades for a 10th anniversary relaunch in 2020.

At 6.3 feet tall, Spirit’s story for Charlie says, “The world’s most mischievous clown is back! After a long time stuck touring the sideshow circuit, Uncle Charlie has finally returned to the big top with enough candy for anyone who loves a good scare. Don’t worry, though, his routine is still killing it – literally.”

Holding his bloody “free candy” bucket, this 10 year anniversary re-launch features light-up eyes and a moving mouth, as his head turns from side to side, and creepy sounds surround him.

You can read more specs, see photos, and watch Uncle Charlie in action in the video below. Priced at $209.99 and currently shipping now, you can buy it here.

Spirit Halloween’s mysterious Graveyard Shift countdown concludes at 11:00 a.m. (ET) on Thursday morning, July 15, at which time we’re expecting some major reveals.
