Are you familiar with The Secret Show? No? Well, it is a British kids' cartoon that ran from 2007-2010 before going off the air due to financial issues. However, it might surprise you to hear that there was originally going to be a real series finale, not the one where UZZ and THEM reluctantly work together, but the one where it acknowledged that the series was ending. How do I know about this? Let me tell you now.
Here's how I discovered this unnerving and disturbing as hell episode:
I have an English pen pal who used to work for Collingwood O'Hare. After they aired the last episode of The Secret Show, The Z-Ray Goggles of Power, they laid her and several other workers off. As recently as a few months ago, she told me that just before she left Collingwood O'Hare headquarters, she grabbed ahold of a CD labeled "TSS Series Finale". She informed me that this would've been the series finale they aired had they not suddenly run out of money to air any more episodes. She sent over a copy of the file in an e-mail and told me to give it a watch. I did nothing with the file until a week later when she sent me another e-mail saying that she just watched the lost episode and it was so horrifying and twisted that she was going to need tons of therapy to get over it. Now that really prompted me to watch the episode and as soon as I watched all of the episode, I found out something: what my British buddy had said was true.
The episode started out like normal with The Fluffy Bunny Show and the usual intro playing. After that, the name of the episode appeared as "Moon of the Cursed" and right away, I noticed that something about this episode seemed a little off. Everything almost looked like it came from a certain anime, but somehow kept true to the original style. My guess was they probably had a different animator, a foreign one if you will, do this one. After all, this was a special episode.Anyway, the episode had Victor, Anita, Professor Professor and Changed Daily in the briefing room. The chief was going over his name of the day, but just as he was going to reveal what his new name was, a creepy rendition of "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" started playing and the walls changed to a dark blood red for a fraction of a second. When the third verse started playing, the colors started to vanish as if transitioning to black-and-white and screaming of people being raped and tortured could be heard.
After that, all I could hear was white noise for about a minute and a half and the only thing to stare at during that time was a white screen with flashing red text that appeared to read "Run before it's too late!" (it was honestly hard to tell because they were flashing too quickly)
After the white screen, Changed Daily was on the floor, Victor, Anita, and Professor Professor looking on in horror. However, an image had flashed before it cut to the next scene. I screencapped it and I was appalled and disgusted at what I saw. A young girl, in her late teens I assume, had her entire abdominal cavity open and all of her organs, except for her heart and lungs, had been removed. Even her ovaries and uterus were gone. Then I noticed in the still picture a baby, covered in blood and with the umbilical cord still attached, laying on the floor, had an unpleasantly calm face as if asleep. I felt like curling up into a ball and crying, as I made the awful conclusion that the girl was pregnant and had her baby and her internal organs ripped out of her body by whoever was in the room with her. However, there seemed to be no shadow other than the deceased girl's or the baby's. I resumed the video and oh God, the very next scene was not as gross as the image I took, but still pretty vomit-inducing.
Changed Daily was shown to have been gutted like a fish, much like the teen girl, and his entrails were scattered everywhere. Doctor Doctor (the show's central antagonist) was standing over his corpse with a large butcher knife in her hand. She appeared to have tears of blood streaming down her face, her face was contorted in an almost-demonic and demented look, and she had what was probably the creepiest evil laugh I ever heard, almost as creepy as Kira's notorious laugh in Death Note, teeth swinging back and forth like diamonds in a chandelier and everything (the only thing that didn't seem normal was her gums were bleeding!). She said something, in an almost-silent whisper, like "I'll be coming for you so don't you even try." and then the episode cut out for no apparent reason. No credits, no segue, no logos, nothing. Just a black screen to look at for the remainder of the episode. Also, there were several voices screaming for dear life in the background. I recognized some of them as Alphonse, Marlon Zen, Mildred (Victor's mother), Kent B. Trusted, et al. After only two minutes of the screaming, I could hear a shrill, high-pitched noise like a drill and then that was it. The sound abruptly cut out and the screen remained black.
I think I should inform you that besides my British pen pal and I, no one else watched the episode. From what I heard, the CD is probably the only physical copy of the episode to ever exist. Since the e-mail regarding the episode, I haven't even heard from my British friend, so I wonder if she killed herself after sending the e-mail or disappeared, never to be heard from again.
