Willie from 'Twilight Zone' to finally be inducted into Dummy Hall of Fame

Willie the dummy from “The Twilight Zone” is finally being recognized for his terror in dummydom and will be inducted into the Dummy Hall of Fame this evening. On May 4, 1962, he first made his appearance on “The Twilight Zone” and not only terrorized ventriloquist Jerry Etherson, but also audiences who tuned in. Networks airing “Twilight Zone” marathons today for Thanksgiving will likely show Willie's episode, “The Dummy,” in recognition of tonight’s honoree. Those to speak at the Hall of Fame event include Slappy from “Goosebumps,” dummy entertainers Charlie McCarthy, Mortimer Snerd and Goofy Goggles, whom Willie shared the screen with on TV. Willie Talk will also make a special guest appearance. Whether the dummies will bring their human counterparts tonight to pull their strings or not has yet to be announced.
