Robert the Doll (Robert Otto)

In light of all the buzz with The Annabelle Doll from the case that was investigated by Lorraine and Ed Warren back in the late 1960's and was a quick subject matter in the recent film about the couple and another case they worked on, "The Conjuring", I want to recount to those of you who do not know the tale of Robert the Doll, a doll kept by a Key West, Florida artist, Eugene "Gene" Robert Otto from boyhood until his death and well beyond. Robert the Doll now lives in a glass box in a museum in Key West, Florida, his native home. The video I am posting tells the story in a quick and concise manner, but expands slightly more on the details.

 Robert scared the bejesus out of Mr. Otto's wife and spent much time in the turret room of their Victorian Home in Key West, Florida, wearing his creepy little sailor suit and hat. He kind of looks like a black eyed potato and scares the ever living crap out of most who he meets!

You can click here to watch another video, which I am about to watch now on a Voodoo Legend involving the sexy doll!  Robby, you are my hero <3!!!

Me? I want to sit him on my knee and read him a long bedtime story! I would like my own turret room with a little widow's walk on the outside so I can hold a candle in the window waiting for my dearly departed lover to come home, um, safe, yeah, I want him to come home safe. Wait, there is nobody who is coming home safe. Yeah, I was getting immersed in the Victorian Romance of the story. Oh wait, there is no romance, just death and a creepy doll left behind that scares everyone and lives creepily in a museum.

You can go visit him and check out more information on his website below!
