Allegedly, one of the most haunted dolls in America, Robert was created in the image of his young owner at the turn of the 19th century in Key West, Florida.
Robert has been more sinister than he looks, and his eccentric owner, Gene, had an unusual attachment to him. Was it Robert that the household heard running around and giggling, when no one was upstairs? Was this inanimate object actually animated, doomed to curse those in his presence forever? Is it truly Robert the Doll causing the misfortune to those who speak ill of him and refuse to ask for permission to take his photo? Join us as we reanimate this topic as a #scullytoremember.
