Joey is a character in Ernest Scared Stupid.
Joey is a student of Briarville's middle school with Elizabeth and Kenny whose father is the town's sheriff. After Mayor Murdock's two sons destroy Kenny Binder's cardboard haunted house, he relocates with Ernest, Elizabeth and Kenny underneath the tree where Trantor the troll is dormant near Old Lady Hackmore's mansion. Trantor later roams free in Briarville, Missouri two hundred years after Phineas Worrell put a curse on him. At that moment, Joey becomes Trantor's first victim to transform into a wooden doll as his punishment for bad acting. He returns as a human after Ernest defeats Trantor once and for all.
