"Karru Marri Odonna Loma Molonu Karrano" is a magic phrase that, when read aloud, can bring inanimate objects to life. Some of these include Slappy the DummyMr. Wood, and Snappy.

The magic spell is used in every book from the Living Dummy saga, and it appears in the first Give Yourself Goosebumps book, Escape from the Carnival of Horrors.


The phrase is written on a card usually kept in the dummy's front pocket. Once the words are read aloud, the dummy comes to life. If the words are read aloud again, he goes back to sleep. The phrase means "you and I are one now." It is written in an unknown language.


  • In Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween, it was revealed that this spell could also bring other objects to life, not only dummies.
  • In The Ghost of Slappy, Slappy reveals he doesn't know what the words actually mean. He thinks they might translate to "Slappy is awesome".
