Skitzo-Wooly Woods

Share Collapse

After much searching, a newly discovered scrap of Skitzo the 1920’s Killer Bear has been found! Dating sometime around 1924, animation historians have found little info on this short's full run time. It seems to have barely played in a few random theaters in Colorado near the Rocky Mountains. Once again, all known full versions of this short were burned once their contents were discovered to have deadly results to viewers.

Despite that, this scrap of the rare “Wooly Woods” short had a mostly intact phonograph cylinder and strange whisperings can be heard under the score when played. It was reported that audience viewers who watched a complete version of "Wooly Woods" would cut holes in their throats and then proceed to lodge rocks and nuts into their necks until they choked to death.

This tiny scrap from "Wooly Woods" was discovered in Colorado. Sadly, the film scrap seems to have been vandalized by writings scrapped into the nitrate itself and whoever had it before decided to abandon it in the woods. Sealed deep in a cave, some rock climbers found it buried under a pile of human and animal bones and possibly left there to decay. Fortunately for us, the cold weather preserved this scrap like a mini freezer and we can discover this old Skitzo cartoon once again!

At the end of the day, he still got to eat all the acorns in his paws.

Well i’ve always wondered what’s his origin story is. I know he came from hell but is there more of his backstory?

So have you found any more leads for episodes of this enigmatic cartoon character?

Comick responds:

Oh yes! Have a newly discovered scrap coming up soon!

im not sure what's the scariest thing about the skitzo animations, the animation itself as in what's happening in the film, or the story about the where they found the film and the people who saw it? still, great job

Comick responds:

Ah thanks! :D Glad you enjoyed all the little details in this!
