  • 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 five 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:
  • 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 first Goosebumps Movie, despite not starring the same invisible boy.
