E37: Robert the Doll

October 15, 2018

At the turn of the 20th century, a young boy named Robert Eugene Otto was gifted a peculiar doll by a family member. The boy and his doll became the best of friends, with the doll adopting the name "Robert", holding conversations with the boy, and according to servants of the Otto family, even walking around the home. Soon, Robert the Doll began terrorizing the Otto family and their employees, bringing with him a path of destruction and terror that made him one of the most famous haunted dolls in history. Is there any truth to the haunting of Robert the Doll, or can it all be chalked up to the imaginations of those who interacted with it? Find out on this week's episode of Big, If True.
