I was just going through old movie actor lists and something I didn't know pop out and I found it kind of interesting. 

The actor who played the live Charles Lee Ray as well as provided the voice of Chucky in all the Child's Play/Chucky movies is  man named Brad Douriff. 

I just found out that one of his first acting roles was in the 1975 movie One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest.  He played Billy Bibbit,  probably best known as the young inmate who kills himself

I've already known about this.

Billy Bibbit (Brad's character) was a gentleman compared to Charles Lee Ray.

oh yeah, two very contrasting characters.  We had to watch One flew over the cuckoo's nest in high school.  with all the different appearances of actors who became big names in their own right.  I didn't realize that one of them was Chucky.

In Cult of Chucky, Chucky actually referred to the mental hospital as a "cuckoo's nest".

I love a good reference.

My brother in law told me about ten years ago the story of Robert The Doll. It's quite fascinating and the doll itself is in a museum in Key West. I saw that it's possible Chucky was inspired from that story. I'm not sure if it's true, but i'd not be surprised. 

For those that don't know about Robert:

I'd not heard of the Robert The Doll legend, but it makes sense as an inspiration for Child's Play. I always compared it to Magic (even though the dummy in that film is not actually sentient). You could even go back to the old Twilight Zone episode "Living Doll" for such inspiration.

Brad Douriff was also the doctor in Deadwood.
