Role in the film
Joey is a student of Briarville's middle school with Elizabeth and Kenny Binder whose father is the town's sheriff. After Mike and Matt Murdock destroy Kenny's cardboard haunted house, he relocates with Ernest, Elizabeth and Kenny underneath the tree where Trantor is dormant near Old Lady Hackmore's mansion. Trantor later roams free in Briarville two hundred years after Phineas Worrell put a curse on him. At that moment, Joey is going home from the tree house and falls into the muddy hole. While trying to climb out, Trantor grabs Joeys hand and turned him into a wooden doll. He returns as a human after Ernest defeats Trantor.
