Are You Afraid of the Dark Wiki
This is a good character.

Sardo was a character from Are You Afraid of the Dark? created by Gary, borrowed once by David and passed onto Tucker's stories in the later years. Year later another Sardo appears as a person living in the town the new series is set in.



Sardo is a supposed magician and owner of Sardo's Magic Mansion. He is strangely unaware that many of the items in his store are really magical, and this often leads to the problem in the story. A recurring joke is someone calls him "Mr. Sardo" and he responds with "That's Sar-DOH! No Mister, accent on the do!" Also, whenever someone enters the store, Sardo always asks whether or not they've seen the vomit. Also quite often he offers prices that are too expensive for the item(s) that a characters wishes to purchase. That is until he agrees to sell them for a slightly lower or often much cheaper price. With him saying his other famous quote "All right!, but I'm losing on the deal!"
