Chuck is a minor character created by Kristen. He appeared in the episode "The Tale of the Prom Queen".


Chuck and his cousin Jam knew about a local urban legend. It was about a girl who died in a hit-and-run car accident in May 1956. The accident happened while she was waiting for her boyfriend to pick her up for prom night, at the graveyard gates. She was buried in her prom dress. It is said, that every year on prom night the ghost of the prom queen shows up. She stands at the graveyard gates, waiting for her beau who never came.

His cousin Jam and his friend Greg went to the local graveyard to find the girl's gravestone. There they meet a pretty girl named Dede who was in town visiting. She was told all about the story and how she returns one night every year waiting for her beau. It piqued her interest, so she was recruited to help them with their ghost hunting mission. Then his cousin and his friends found information all about the prom queen and what had happened at the library. They learned that the girl was named Judy Larsen . She was waiting for her boyfriend Ricky Mitchell to pick her up by the cemetery gates. But she was too close to the road. So another driver hit her and she died.

Then his cousin and his friends decided to hold a séance at the lake and to contact the ghost of the prom queen's boyfriend who drowned at the bottom of the lake. And it seemed to work.

The next night his cousin and his friends went to the cemetery to see if the séance actually worked. His cousin asked him ahead of time to help him play a joke on his friends. So he dressed up as a ghost in a white hooded robe. Also he wore a set of glowing flashlights on his head under his hood. Finally he was asked to walk around with wind chimes in his hand. This made him look like he was a real ghost from a distance. So late at night his cousin and two friends saw him walking around the cemetery. Then when Greg approached him, he told Greg: "Boo!". Greg was really mad and demanded to know who he was.

He and his cousin laugh as their joke was revealed. He is introduced be Jam's cousin. It is revealed to Greg and Dede that his cousin never took their ghost searching mission seriously. So he thought it would be funny to play a scary joke on his friends, and his cousin asked him to be in on it. This is because he and his cousin were positive that a real ghost would never appear. Then he and his cousin laugh while explaining their joke. Greg becomes furious, and prepares to box their ears off. While Dede is upset asking for explanations about why their séance from the night before seemed to be successful.

Then the church bells go off, and he pointed out that another vehicle was approaching. Then he and the others realize that the vehicle is an old 1950's Chevy glowing in the moonlight. The driver is sporting an old-fashioned greased haircut, they notice it is Ricky Mitchell. They freak out but Dede acts like everything is all right.

He, Jam and Greg can't seem to understand, why Dede is not freaked out. Then he watches Dede prepare to approach the man in the vehicle like he is no stranger. Then she takes her ponytail out. Then she spins around and suddenly her clothing changes into a beautiful blue prom gown.

He and the two other guys then listen to Dede happily explain to them that she knew they could be the ones to help her, right from the beginning. Then she explains to him and the other two that she couldn't leave the cemetery unless someone took her with them. Then with their help, they did research with her to find out what happened that night. Now, she finally found out why Ricky never came. Then with their help, they did that séance to contact Ricky. Then his ghost finally got the message about where she was waiting for him.

Then she explains that her boyfriend is finally here to pick her up. So she gets into the car. Then he and his cousin seemed completely spooked out. Then she revealed that Dede was just her nickname, because her real name is Judy. This revealed that she was the ghost of the Prom Queen all along!

Then Dede told them all that her ride was finally here. Then Greg and Jam were thanked for all of their help. Then he and his cousin just stared in complete shock as the car drove off into the night and went right through the cemetery gate like it was not even there. He now realized that ghosts really do exist!
