Andrew Craw is a thirteen year old headless ghost boy. For most of the story it seems that he is the main antagonist of the thirty-seventh Goosebumps book, The Headless Ghost, and its television adaptation. Though while his story drives the plot, he only appears at the very end.


The Headless Ghost

Andrew was a nasty brat who lived in a house haunted by a ghost, and liked to play mean pranks. One day, he found the hiding place of the ghost, who pulled off his head as a punishment. Ever since then, his ghost searched for his missing head until it was found by Stephanie Alpert and Duane Comack. There are many tales of gloomy disappearances in the house following his demise, but whether or not they really happened or were invented to increase the haunted house's appeal is not known. When a boy (or probably another ghost, it remains unclear) named Seth was pretending to be him as a prank, he threatened to take one of their heads.

TV adaptation

Andrew's role remains mostly similar to that of the book. However, by the episode's end, Stephanie and Duane discover Andrew's head inside the dumbwaiter of the Hill House attic. He still lives in Hill House alongside the ghosts of Seth and Otto.

Terror in the Graveyard

Andrew (who is referred to as The Headless Ghost) appears as the main villain of the game. The object of the game is to defeat him by sending him flying.
