Not to be confused with the 2020 animatronic Uncle Charlie (2020).
Uncle Charlie (2010) was an animatronic sold by Spirit Halloween for the 2010 Halloween season. It resembled an old clown wearing an orange hat, yellow plaid shirt, and holding a bucket reading, "Free Candy." The head continuously turned. When activated, the eyes lit up and one of several phrases could be heard.
