Swinging Scarecrow was an animatronic that appeared in Spirit Halloween's 2016 line-up. He was sold for $199.99 like all the other large swinging characters. He was displayed in the "Clock Tower" theme. He hung from the right front side of the theme from a tree. He had two animations, he would rock back and forth and he would move his mouth while one of his five phrases played. He was the 3rd and last so far in the large swinging characters series. He is so far the best large swinging character with the best mouth animation. But the biggest downside to him is that his mouth can break easily if not treated carefully.

Backstory Edit

(The backstory of Swinging Scarecrow isn't confirmed, but based off of his phrases information can be gathered about it.) Swinging Scarecrow was made by a farmer as a normal scarecrow. Somehow, this scarecrow got possessed and killed the farmer by ripping him about. After this, Swinging Scarecrow stole the farmer's clothes and then buried him in a grave. Eventually the farmer was dug up from where Swinging Scarecrow had buried him.

Trivia Edit

  • Swinging Scarecrow may possibly have the same voice actor as Pumpkin Nester, as both props sound very similar.
  • Swinging Scarecrow is one of many farm props released in 2016. Others included: Hay Bale Popper, Sitting Scarecrow, Lunging Pumpkin Carver, and Pumpkin Door Knocker.
  • Though Swinging Scarecrow is meant to swing, he works just fine if sat down, and looks as if he's insanely rocking back and forth.
  • Swinging Scarecrow is one of three giant swinging props released. The other two are Pumpkin Nester and Swinging Swamp Hag.
