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!
