Wally is the puppet of George Lundgren. He is a giraffe with four red bow ties around his neck (To accommodate for its long length). He is also dressed in a green tuxedo. George is a very skilled ventriloquist. When speaking through Wally, his voice takes on a much higher pitch and is able to lend an entirely different personality to him. Although he usually says negative things to and about George, George is actually just saying things bad about himself because he lacks self-confidence.
Semi-Coming to Life
In the Season 13 episode "The Silent Treatment", during a dream sequence, Wally becomes autonomous and takes George on a trip through a world without him and we find out that Wally was made by either George, his father, or the combined efforts of both. Later in this episode, Wally is also saved from drifting off down the Mill Creek by Sue Ellen's speedy reaction.
- The wood that became Wally was from an Oak Tree (as he said in The Silent Treatment)
- Although in Fifteen, George remembers his dad saying it is made of Ash wood, just like a baseball bat.
- This could either be an inconsistency, George remembering differently to allow the story to flow and get the right answer, or Wally lying that it was his wood being destroyed in the dream to further motivate George.
- Despite Arthur saying that ventriloquist dummies weird him out in Night Fright, he has no negative reactions to Wally, and even enjoys some of his jokes.
- There are two different versions of Wally's origin in the series. In Arthur's Dummy Disaster, George says that he made Wally in Arts and Crafts class, with a little help from his dad at home. However, in Fifteen, George is shown receiving Wally as Christmas gift from his dad. He thinks it's a "giraffe doll" at first, until his dad explains that it's a ventriloquist dummy, so it seems that George had no part in making Wally in this version of Wally's origin.
