Countdown To Halloween Blog Post #20 - this could be dangerous to your health!


Apparently Walt Disney's Magical Kingdom wasn't always as magical as advertised. For decades an urban myth concerning a Mickey Mouse short video titled "Suicide Mouse" has circulated, rearing it's ugly head now and then to frighten the living daylights out of it's viewers. Shortly before his death Walt Disney went into his studio and worked non-stop for days on one project. When his work was finished, he grabbed a nearby animator and asked him to watch his completed project. The anonymous animator did as told, but upon exiting the viewing area he appeared to be confused and disjointed. He was mumbling the following words over and over, "Real suffering is not known". A security guard was called to the scene in an attempt to get control, but then things got worse. It is said that the stricken animator, still repeating his "Real Suffering is not known" mantra then grabbed the gun from the guard and shot himself in the head.


When you hear a story like this, the first thing you want to know is what on earth was in Disney's film? What did he mean when he said "Real suffering is not known"? The only way to answer that is to watch the video and see for yourself. I do want to warn you though - Urban Legends are often infused with a few grains of truth. If you are at all afraid to watch the clip, given it's horrific history, then don't watch it. Don't take that chance. But if you are the least bit curious about it, then here it is. See for yourself. I will tell you this, there is no screaming witch that pops up suddenly on the screen like many spooky videos have. But there are screams, and other things too.


Here is another version of Suicide Mouse for you to view as well.


Real Suffering is not known. Real suffering is not known. Real suffering is not known. Real suffering is not known. Real Suffering is not known. Real suffering is not known. Real suffering is not known. Real suffering is not known. Real Suffering is not known. Real suffering is not known. Real suffering is not known. Real suffering is not known. Real Suffering is not known. Real suffering is not known. Real suffering is not known. Real suffering is not known. Real Suffering is not known. Real suffering is not known. Real suffering is not known. Real suffering is not known.
