List of characters
- This is the first Goosebumps series to focus on one specific character.
- To no surprise, this series features the most sequels to the Living Dummy saga at six books currently, as well as the most sequels to a single saga in a single series.
- Most books in this series may have their titles referencing to other Goosebumps books:
- Slappy Birthday to You possibly alluding to the Give Yourself Goosebumps book Scary Birthday to You.
- Attack of the Jack! possibly alluding to Attack of the Jack-O'-Lanterns.
- I Am Slappy's Evil Twin possibly alluding to the Goosebumps Series 2000 book I Am Your Evil Twin.
- Please Do Not Feed the Weirdo possibly alluding to Please Don't Feed the Vampire! or Please Don't Feed The Bears.
- Escape from Shudder Mansion starts with the phrase "Escape from"; this phrase is incredibly common in the Goosebumps franchise, and it has appeared in the titles of many books. The first book to bear this title was the Give Yourself Goosebumps book, Escape from the Carnival of Horrors.
- Diary of a Dummy possibly alluding to the Give Yourself Goosebumps book Diary of a Mad Mummy.
- They Call Me the Night Howler possibly alluding to the Goosebumps HorrorLand book My Friends Call Me Monster.
- My Friend Slappy possibly alluding to the original Goosebumps book My Best Friend Is Invisible.
- Even though Slappy is the narrator of the stories in this series, he refers to himself in the third person during the books he appears in.
- The title Revenge of the Invisible Boy! is a possible reference to the ending of the film Goosebumps, despite not starring the same invisible boy.
