Not to be confused with the 2010 animatronic Uncle Charlie (2010).
Uncle Charlie (2020) was an animatronic sold by Spirit Halloween for the 2020 Halloween season. It resembled an old, red-haired clown wearing an orange hat with a red sash, a red bow tie with yellow polka dots, a yellow plaid shirt with a white flower in the lapel, black pants, and red clown shoes. He is holding a colorful lollipop and a bucket that reads, "Free Candy." When activated, Uncle Charlie's head turns back and forth as his mouth moves, his eyes light up yellow, and he speaks one of several different phrases.

- The codename for this animatronic is "PLAID"
- This animatronic's code/item number name is ANIM 845.
- This was the first animatronic released for the 2020 season.
- This animatronic is a remake of the original 2010 Uncle Charlie.
- Some differences between the 2010 Uncle Charlie and this remake includes a new face sculpt, altered voice, different shoes, and different box art. He also is slim, compared to the 2010 model which made him look fat. And unlike the original 2010 model, which had constant motion, the 2020 model only moves its head when activated. However, the head resets to a front-facing position at the end of each phrase (except for when it is turned to the steady-on mode)
- This animatronic sometimes came with a distorted face due to the material.
- While the phrases of this animatronic are the same as the 2010 version, it is a re-recorded version.
- The prototype was setup at The Flagship Store which featured a much different face.
- Just like the original version, this animatronic also uses the same music used in Honky the Clown's audio.
- Uncle Charlie's bucket was featured as an enamel pin in Spirit Halloween's mystery packages among other pieces of exclusive Spirit Halloween memorabilia.
