Goosebumps Gold was a series originally intended to follow Goosebumps Series 2000 and was scheduled to launch in October 2000. However, R.L. Stine's contract with Scholastic ran out prior to the release of the series, so it was never produced. The titles and the covers, which were published on Goosebumps illustrator Tim Jacobus's website, were the only things from Goosebumps Gold that were ever released. In an interview, Stine stated that none of the Goosebumps Gold books were ever written or completed.
There were three books planned for the series: The Haunted Mask Lives!, Happy Holidays from Dead House, and Slappy New Year. The plot details for the books are unknown. A book titled Slappy New Year! was released as the eighteenth book in Goosebumps HorrorLand series. However, other than the title, the book has nothing to do with the Goosebumps Gold version.
