Presto, you're bald.
~ Sgt. Botnick

Sergeant Botnick is a cruel camp barber at Kent Military School and a minor antagonist of Child's Play 3. He is responsible for giving new recruits military haircuts even if it means removing their hairdos altogether.

He is portrayed by Andy Robinson who also plays Scorpio.


Botnick first appeared when Andy Barclay was getting ready for his haircut, with Botnick saying to kiss his hairdo goodbye. He then shaved his hair while an advert for the Good Guy Dolls was on.

He later appeared during the soldiers have dinner, Botnick told many students their dates of hairdos. He then came across Harold Whitehurst, telling him to come to his haircut.

The cruel sergeant, while cutting his hair, told him that he was the most pathetic person his ever seen and told him to go back home while he still can with Whitehurst responsding that if would if he had the chance.


Botnick Died

Chucky with Botnick's corpse

Botnick is cutting Whitehurst's hair while mocking him. When Whitehurst retorts, Botnick gives him a rough shave and calls him a "smartass". After he was done with Whitehurst, Botnick found Chucky and intended to give him one of his military haircuts too. Then Chucky turned the tables on him and slashed the sergeant's throat with a razor while mockingly saying "Presto. You're dead! It's definitely you." Chucky laughed insanely as the sergeant died. Botnick then fell back on his seat, dead. Whitehurst suddenly came into the room and saw the dead sergeant. Traumatized at the sergeant's death and Chucky's existence, Chucky then said "Boo!" which made him run away in fear.


  • Botnick is the 15th person Chucky kills after becoming a doll. However, he could possibly be his 18th, or even 27th victim overall.
  • His death is strikingly similar to that of Corporal Telford's in Die Hard 2. Both men have their necks slashed.
