Yes, Sweeny Todd was a real man. He was a barber that murdered innocent men and women and then gave them to a pie maker and cooked them to create human meat pies and sold them to the public who never knew it was a person they were eating.

Sweeny Todd has neither been proven fact nor fiction. There are no records from the 1800s, estimably when Sweeny Todd was supposed to have existed, that a barber by the name of Todd existed. Most scholars believe that Sweeny Todd actually came from an old horror story and from word of mouth. Sweeny Todd, or characters with Sweeny Todd characteristics, has made appearances in other works of literature, sorry but I'm not sure which but it's easy to find it on search engines. Real or not Sweeny Todd does capture the imagination of the viewer and portrayed as a very possible person.yes it is very real and if u have ever eaten pie it is made out of bllood and guts lol so dont eat pie and dont get your hair cut because they are probaly in disgises!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!No, it's not real.
