31 Horror Icons
October 31, 2015 1:37 PM   Subscribe

Every day this month, the wacky graphics folks at Baboon Creation (with Motion Designer Simon Lagneau) have posted an animated gif showing an iconic horror character in a 'walk cycle' (or float or bounce, depending on the character). From Frankenstein's Monster on the 1st to Michael Jackson Zombie on the 31st, all in a cartoonish style that's more spoopy than spooky. (Day 17: the Addams Family's Cousin Itt) Still, they call it "31 Horror Days"; I can't disagree or the monsters'll get me.

Okay, could someone please tell me what the heck "spoopy" is?

Why do they all have hammers (coffee cups?) for hands?

At any rate, it's definitely spoopy.

As for me, I first saw "spoopy" in a collection of misspelled Halloween decorations. (I printed out the "Damon Horns" one to show to a friend named Damon. He's not talking to me now.)

I probably should have gone with "altogether ooky" with Cousin Itt in the mix.

Semi-related, and a little late, but... "What if General Mills expanded their line of monster cereals?"

Honestly expected this to be a link to False Positive's annual 31 Days of Halloween feature. This is good too.
