** ''Full Moon Fever'' borrows most of its plot from ''Chicken Chicken'' -- the protagonists, one boy and one girl, tick off an old lady and subsequently find themselves [[BalefulPolymorph transformed into animals.]] It also resembles a short story, "Pumpkin Juice" (from ''Still More Tales to Give You Goosebumps''), where the protagonists turn into hungry werewolves after ingesting a strange food.

Troy Steele of ''{{Blog/Blogger Beware}}'' even calls it in his review ''Chicken Chicken'' + ''The Werewolf in the Living Room''.

** ''Goosebumps 2000'' was supposed to have a book called "The Incredible Shrinking Fifth Grader," but the series ended before it could be published. "The Incredible Shrinking Fifth Grader" was also supposed to be part of the aborted ''Goosebumps Gold'' series, but eventually found its way to the ''Goosebumps Horrorland'' series under the name "Night of the Giant Everything."

"The Incredible Shrinking Fifth Grader" was also supposed to be part of the aborted ''Goosebumps Gold'' series, but eventually found its way to the ''Goosebumps Horrorland'' series under the name "Night of the Giant Everything."" R.L. Stine later revealed the plot had been repurposed for one of his horror novels, and Tim Jacobus shared the unused but completed cover art for the Goosebumps wiki.
** There was going to be one more ''Give Yourself Goosebumps'' book, but it got scrapped when the line ended. Artist Craig White shared the cover artwork with the Goosebumps wiki and, while the plot's still unknown, the cover featured some malevolent looking penguins in an arctic setting.
** The Triple Header monster was originally designed to look like a teen monster with three separate heads instead of the extra two growing out of the monster's shoulders. Extra artwork from Tim Jacobus implies a third novella collection was planned as well.

* WordOfDante: Before 2015, "You and I are one now" as the English translation of "Karru Marri Odonna Loma Molonu Karrano" -- it's hard to believe this was purely a popular fan interpretation of a line from the tv series that didn't reach canonical status until 19 years later.

* AscendedFanon: A promotional booklet released for the 2015 film (which mostly consist of Slappy taunting his new slave, [[TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou the reader) was actually the first official material to confirm that "Karru Marri Odonna Loma Molonu Karrano" (the incantation that brings Slappy to life) translates to "You and I are one now" in English, which the fandom had been using for almost twenty years based on a popular interpretation of a line from the tv series' version of "Night of the Living Dummy II."
