Design [ edit ] Child's Play  director  Tom Holland  explained that Chucky draws heavily  from the  My Buddy  dolls: "I originally called him Buddy, and I couldn’t use it because of the ‘My Buddy’ doll. I went out, I got a ‘My Buddy’ doll, I got a  Raggedy Ann , a Raggedy Andy and I got one of those life-size baby  infants. And I still have it out back. They are the creepiest things in the  world. And what I told [designer]  Kevin Yagher  was, I wanted Buddy, but I  wanted the Raggedy Andy coloring – those button overalls, and I wanted  the freckles and all that. And then I wanted the meanest-looking son of a  [expletive] Raggedy Ann and Andy doll that you could create, but I wanted  it with the creepiness of that infant doll." [2] History [ edit ] Child's Play  (1988) [ edit ] Main article:  Child's Play (1988 film) Charles Lee Ray (born March 9, 1950), known as the "Lakeshore  Strangler", is a voodoo-obsessed serial killer on the run from the police in  1988 Chicago. After his driver and partner Eddie Caputo abandons him in  his van to escape the police, Ray takes refuge in a toy shop, where he is  shot by homicide detective Mike Norris. Aware that he is mortally wounded, Ray swears revenge on Mike and Eddie before transferring his soul into a  Good Guy doll via a voodoo ritual. Thunder and lightning destroy the store

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
