John Franklin, who played the part of Isaac in Stephen King’s Children of the Corn, plays a part of Chucky in Child’s Play. Whenever Chucky runs or walks, that was John Franklin. He is credited as ‘Walkabout Chucky’.

4. His Theme Song was Rejected

Composer Joe Renzetti and singer/songwriter Simon Stokes got together to make a theme song for the movie, Child’s Play. The theme song wound up not being used in the film, claiming it would have been way too cheesy and it didn’t match what the team was looking for.


5. He’s hated by Britney Spears (and Fans)

In the film The Seed of Chucky, Chucky runs a Spears look-a-like while evilly giggling ‘oops I did it again’! The scene was actually cut down, only showing the Britney doppelganger for a brief few seconds. Focus Films actually released an official statement saying that the pop star wasn’t actually in the film, and she was done no harm.
