Skitzo-The Giving Season

Share Collapse

Author Comments

A rare Skitzo short from 1924! This particular short was released to theaters during one of the worst times: Christmas season! as a result hundreds of children on winter break were exposed to the "The Giving Season" before authorities were able to gather and burn all the copies. Side effects from watching this short its its full form led them to taking sharp pieces of metal and slicing open their own throats then gargling and drowning from the blood as it filled their lungs. This tiny scrap was discovered in a masochist's house under the basement floors wrapped in glittery papers and dried bloody rags. He would not reveal how he came to possess such a rare piece of nitrate lost for more then 80 yrs, but after it was removed by animation archivists, he was later found dead by suicide and a note that said "Have a Merry Holiday and enjoy the show!"

excellent piece! i very much enjoyed the sadistic twist to this merry occasion! fluid animation, nice old-timey music fitting of 1924, and the distorted music is a very nice touch. good show, good show!

haha awesome :) Thanks!

Christmas is just the perfect season for a sadistical twist like this, simple idea, great animation. The fact that a present pummels down the chimney with such a blade makes you wonder about Santa... maybe he's really... Satan? O_o Nice work!
