Creepypasta
« on: 05 Nov 2009, 23:28 »

 I know it is a little late for Halloween, but I figured it would be a fun thread. Share your best creepypasta.

Subject: Candle Cove local kidís show?
Does anyone remember this kidís show? It was called Candle Cove and I must have been 6 or 7. I never found reference to it anywhere so I think it was on a local station around 1971 or 1972. I lived in Ironton at the time. I donít remember which station, but I do remember it was on at a weird time, like 4:00 PM.

it seems really familiar to meÖ..i grew up outside of ashland and was 9 yrs old in 72. candle coveÖwas it about pirates? i remember a pirate marionete at the mouth of a cave talking to a little girl

Skyshale033
Subject: Re: Candle Cove local kidís show?
YES! Okay Iím not crazy! I remember Pirate Percy. I was always kind of scared of him. He looked like he was built from parts of other dolls, real low-budget. His head was an old porcelain baby doll, looked like an antique that didnít belong on the body. I donít remember what station this was! I donít think it was WTSF though.

Sorry to ressurect this old thread but I know exactly what show you mean, Skyshale. I think Candle Cove ran for only a couple months in Ď71, not Ď72. I was 12 and I watched it a few times with my brother. It was channel 58, whatever station that was. My mom would let me switch to it after the news. Let me see what I remember.

It took place in Candle cove, and it was about a little girl who imagined herself to be friends with pirates. The pirate ship was called the Laughingstock, and Pirate Percy wasnít a very good pirate because he got scared too easily. And there was calliope music constantly playing. Donít remember the girlís name. Janice or Jade or something. Think it was Janice.

Skyshale033
Subject: Re: Candle Cove local kidís show?
Thank you Jaren!!! Memories flooded back when you mentioned the Laughingstock and channel 58. I remember the bow of the ship was a wooden smiling face, with the lower jaw submerged. It looked like it was swallowing the sea and it had that awful Ed Wynn voice and laugh. I especially remember how jarring it was when they switched from the wooden/plastic model, to the foam puppet version of the head that talked.

ha ha i remember now too. ;) do you remember this part skyshale: ďyou haveÖto goÖINSIDE.Ē

Skyshale033
Subject: Re: Candle Cove local kidís show?
Ugh mike, I got a chill reading that. Yes I remember. Thatís what the ship always told Percy when there was a spooky place he had to go in, like a cave or a dark room where the treasure was. And the camera would push in on Laughingstockís face with each pause. YOU HAVEÖ TO GOÖ INSIDE. With his two eyes askew and that flopping foam jaw and the fishing line that opened and closed it. Ugh. It just looked so cheap and awful.

You guys remember the villain? He had a face that was just a handlebar mustache above really tall, narrow teeth.

Subject: Re: Candle Cove local kidís show?
i honestly, honestly thought the villain was pirate percy. i was about 5 when this show was on. nightmare fuel.

Jaren_2005
Subject: Re: Candle Cove local kidís show?
That wasnít the villain, the puppet with the mustache. That was the villainís sidekick, Horace Horrible. He had a monocle too, but it was on top of the mustache. I used to think that meant he had only one eye.

But yeah, the villain was another marionette. The Skin-Taker. I canít believe what they let us watch back then.

kevin_hart
Subject: Re: Candle Cove local kidís show?
jesus h. christ, the skin taker. what kind of a kids show were we watching? i seriously could not look at the screen when the skin taker showed up. he just descended out of nowhere on his strings, just a dirty skeleton wearing that brown top hat and cape. and his glass eyes that were too big for his skull. christ almighty.

Skyshale033
Subject: Re: Candle Cove local kidís show?
Wasnít his top hat and cloak all sewn up crazily? Was that supposed to be childrenís skin??

mike_painter65
Subject: Re: Candle Cove local kidís show?
yeah i think so. rememer his mouth didnít open and close, his jaw just slid back and foth. i remember the little girl said ďwhy does your mouth move like thatĒ and the skin-taker didnít look at the girl but at the camera and said ďTO GRIND YOUR SKINĒ

Skyshale033
Subject: Re: Candle Cove local kidís show?
Iím so relieved that other people remember this terrible show!

I used to have this awful memory, a bad dream I had where the opening jingle ended, the show faded in from black, and all the characters were there, but the camera was just cutting to each of their faces, and they were just screaming, and the puppets and marionettes were flailing spastically, and just all screaming, screaming. The girl was just moaning and crying like she had been through hours of this. I woke up many times from that nightmare. I used to wet the bed when I had it.

kevin_hart
Subject: Re: Candle Cove local kidís show?
i donít think that was a dream. i remember that. i remember that was an episode.

Skyshale033
Subject: Re: Candle Cove local kidís show?
No no no, not possible. There was no plot or anything, I mean literally just standing in place crying and screaming for the whole show.

kevin_hart
Subject: Re: Candle Cove local kidís show?
maybe iím manufacturing the memory because you said that, but i swear to god i remember seeing what you described. they just screamed.

Jaren_2005
Subject: Re: Candle Cove local kidís show?
Oh God. Yes. The little girl, Janice, I remember seeing her shake. And the Skin-Taker screaming through his gnashing teeth, his jaw careening so wildly I thought it would come off its wire hinges. I turned it off and it was the last time I watched. I ran to tell my brother and we didnít have the courage to turn it back on.

mike_painter65
Subject: Re: Candle Cove local kidís show?
i visited my mom today at the nursing home. i asked her about when i was littel in the early 70s, when i was 8 or 9 and if she remebered a kidís show, candle cove. she said she was suprised i could remember that and i asked why, and she said ďbecause i used to think it was so strange that you said Ďiím gona go watch candle cove now momí and then you would tune the tv to static and juts watch dead air for 30 minutes. you had a big imagination with your little pirate show.Ē

What is this supposed to be?  From the search results I just got this is just some kind of created thing.  Three guys from 4chan or something faking a conversation on another board.

 A creepypasta is a scary story that has been passed around the internet. What I posted is just a story.

http://encyclopediadramatica.com/Creepypasta (The advertisements on the side bar can be NSFW, but there are some really good stories in there.)

 Wake Up

It has been reported that some victims of torture, during the act, would retreat into a fantasy world from which they could not wake up. In this catatonic state, the victim lived in a world just like their normal one, except they werenít being tortured. The only way that they realized they needed to wake up was a note they found in their fantasy world. It would tell them about their condition, and tell them to wake up. Even then, it would often take months until they were ready to discard their fantasy world and please wake up.

Yeah, I read a few of the stories and while some of them are alright the majority just seem like they're trying too hard.

Also, maybe I am just jaded/cynical but the one you posted just seems like an attempt at making another meme so the instigators can register candlecove.com/net & sell merch.

 Creepypasta isn't just a 4chan thing. But whatever. Ben, I really have no idea where you are getting that from.

 Sorry for trying to start something original and interesting.

When you get raped, you fall asleep, and in this tortured dream state you go on 4chan, which proceeds to emancipate you from your rapecoma.  I'm sure it happens all the time.

EDIT: That's what you get when you speedread.  Sorry, I'd read that pasta with 'rape' instead of 'torture' and immediately hated it.  I guess it makes a little more sense with 'torture?' I don't know, I don't actually know anyone who's been tortured.  It's still a little silly.

Yeah, I like that one. I'm pretty sure I have read it before, but it was long enough ago that I didn't really remember it. It is paced right, it goes just long enough that first you start to wonder why they keep italicizing wake up, and then you get to the final one. It could have been a whole lot worse if it hadn't been done jsut right.
