Skitzo the 1920s Bear

Author Comments

Sadly my cartoon ep of "In The Dark" did not make the Halloween deadline and I will be releasing it later in Dec. In its place for Halloween I am submitting a Skitzo the 1920's killer bear short. Skitzo cartoons were all destroyed in the 1920s because people who watched a full episode would become mentally insane and murder people. Now all we can find are the scraps. He is a character that appears later in my In The Dark series as well and you can see a tiny clip of him in my trailer too. Happy Halloween Newgrounds!

Ah a classic... But what if I were to tell you there was an animation uploaded that's older than this one? Well, 4 years ago before this animation was uploaded, seems there was "another" Skitzo. Now, this Skitzo was not a bear, but rather a fluffy little rabbit... Some traits seem to have lingered on, but I will not assume that the rabbit inspired the bear... But I should ask, were you inspired by this animation?

Seems all the core elements are there... retro style, nice at first only to go wild later, & a questionable ending...

Comick responds:

There a very detailed backstory about Skitzo's name/origins that goes back to middle school days, but I'm too lazy to type it here. So no its not related at all to this video.


I like bears. I don't like dogs. What I also don't like is wasting poison arrows on black bears that run away in RDR2 and still spook your horse. Only the grizzlies deserve poison arrows.

Would we ever see a 5 minute film of skitzo?

Comick responds:

I'm pretty sure that would leave to instant death! :D But actually, yeah we might see a longer Skitzo toon in the future. It might not be one of his lost scraps but it might be in my animated series In The Dark (coming soon).


Comick responds:

Yup that's good ol Skitzo!
