The Shaking Spirits are a series of animated Halloween decorations made in 2006-2011. Each spirit shakes while its eyes glow and spooky noises/phrases play. Some of these look identical to the 1993 shaking Grim Reaper.

Trivia Edit

  • The Black and White Reapers are nearly identical to the Shaking Grim Reaper originally released in 1993. The black reaper is a complete copy in terms of appearance, and besides checking the battery cases, the only way to set the original and the shaking spirits version apart is by the audio: the 1993 version says 'Happy Halloween', while the Shaking Spirit version ghostly moans.
  • Moreover, it is presumed that the Shaking Spirits were (at least in part) inspired by the 1993 reaper, meaning that the original reaper can be considered a predecessor to the series.
  • The chained Reaper and chained Ghost versions are commonly mixed up, often by mistake or sheer misinformation: the reaper has an exclusive head sculpt with black eyes, square teeth, a large nose, and black lines over the mouth, while the ghost utilizes a fanged skull with red eyes, a tongue, smaller nose, and spots over the mouth. Despite this, they share the same general appearance and audio.
  • The later 2010 witch is unique among the shaking spirits as it has only half a head, with the back being completely flat.
  • The Witch has the same face as the Floating Witch, Hang Ups Witch, and the Hallo-Wings Witch.
