Skitzo-"Spare a Dime?"

Share Collapse

Author Comments

A newly discovered Skitzo The 1920's Killer Bear cartoon short from 1923! This film reel titled "Can Ya Spare a Dime" is a combination of two decayed copies which came from different sources: an old theater house attic and a mental patient's personal safebox...as a result the cartoon is probably the longest running Skitzo scrap found to exist yet!

Researchers make note that 1923 newspapers reported this cartoon, when seen in its full form, had the ability to cause the viewer to pull their teeth out with pliers and jam nails straight into their heads. No full copy has yet been found of any Skitzo the Bear cartoons...but animation historians continue to look!

Skitzo the Bear belongs to Crystal Gonzalez (C) 2013

I thought it would be a little different, a bit too "edgy" for my taste. Y'know it would been a bit better.

I read this revierw as "I dont like horror cartoons and this made me piss my pants, 2 stars!!"

Not bad. Not bad at all. Totally unpredictable. You are indeed the hipster of flash.

Comick responds:

Hipster??? Thats a new one for the books! Its called a HORROR cartoon haha

Wow! Such fine work! I never knew MGM had flash, or even internet back in 1923!

Comick responds:

Hahaha I should make a flash where you have to "hand crank" a lever with the space bar to watch the cartoon! Like those old penny video machines :b

A little bit too "edgy" for my taste. The sudden, random violence pulled out of nowhere in the short isn't as appealing or as freaky as you might think it is. The animation was "reasonable", though a bit choppy here and there. The story (if there was any) didn't add up or was too hard to follow, followed by an abrupt ending which looked pretty bad in my opinion as you apparently stretched the last frame and put effects everywhere rather than making it look like actual film getting ripped.

You should probably attempt to animate water/blood drips manually, also. Most of the blood effects you made looked incredibly artificial rather than fluid (which would look good rather than just silly).

I understand it is a short and all, but it does have a lot of flaws. And taken that you seem to be very proud of this character (to the point of monetizing him) I felt that pointing out what seemed odd about it would benefit everybody.

2.5/5 - 5/10

Bleh your review was so condescending and pompous while trying to sound "profound". Its quite obvious this cartoon hit a note with you to bother writing all you did, but I hardly doubt if I cleaned up the blood and film decay that your true malice-soaked opinions about my cartoon or my characters would change at all. Thanks for nothing

very creative Crystal you don't disappoint same good ol skitzo too bad it only has 142 views on youtube maybe some of you could help with that small problem hmm?
