Plot Appearance Edit
- An excerpt from the main article: Coraline (filmography)
When Coraline searches for the three ghost children's eyes, other Spink and Forcible are turned into a grotesque green and pink taffy monster with their entangled bodies resembling marshmallow twists and with hair like ribbon candy (Also not officially known as The dogs are turned into bat-like creatures with red bloodshot eyes.) The pair are inside a large paper taffy and hold a ghost child's eye in the form of a pearl ring. When Coraline attempts to remove it from them, they emerge and screech at her to "Thief" and "Give it back". Coraline defeats them by making the bats swoop down in anger for her, ducking so they miss and hit the whining twosome instead. They promptly turn into a grotesque statues with hideous faces. The Taffy Monsters are based off the taffy that Miss Forcible gives Coraline.

Other Spink Edit
In the Other World, Miss Spinks's counterpart is initially identical to the real world but with button eyes. But, later during a performance, she strips away her old skin and turn into her younger selves, seen previously on posters in their basement apartment.
When the Other world wasn't at it's peak, Other Miss Spink was a green and pink taffy monster with their entangled bodies resembling marshmallow twists and with hair like ribbon candy, ironic due to her fondness of the candy known as "Old Taffy."
