Wally is George Lundgren’s ventriloquist dummy. 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. 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. Carl used to be afraid of him but got over that fear when his therapist used puppets to help Carl with his social skills. George got him for Christmas.

In the Virgule Watteau fantasies, Bastings owns a dummy named Wallace, which is based on Wally.


Wally's origin has been inconsistent throughout the series. In his debut, "Arthur's Dummy Disaster," George states that Wally was made in arts-and-crafts class with a little help from his dad. In "Fifteen," George remembers getting Wally as a Christmas present. Furthermore, in "Fifteen," it is stated that Wally is made of ash wood, although in "The Silent Treatment," Wally himself states that he came from an oak tree. However, in that case, it could have been Wally lying that it was his wood being destroyed 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.
