From the Adventures of Mark Twain, claymation 1986.
The Mysterious Stranger claymation is adapted from the final unfinished novel attempted by the American author Mark Twain. The book was worked on periodically from roughly 1890 up until 1910. The body of work is a social commentary by Twain addressing his ideas of 'moral sense', duality, and the "damned human race"
Childrens video is creepy af. I have never read the book.

Kay. I watched it. 

And, well...that's okay. I didn't want to get any sleep tonight anyway, Sophia.

Because anything out of one's comfort zone should be banned.

There is a storm outside, the lights are flickering...Sophia, the wrath of this terrifying claymation is upon me now.

JKJK. 

Well there is a storm, but power is always bad here. Creepy vibe still be real tho! Going to make some tea and chill in a moment to shake it off. Anyway, this is an unfinished manuscript so I hear there are different versions? Sometimes this character is called forty-four, and not Satan. I'm curious now.

Sophia, what is the significance of that number, if any at all? Feel like this might be something you'd know, you seem to know a lot about this so I'd be interested to hear your thoughts on that!

I remember seeing this on TV as a kid and thinking it was a strange episode of Reboot! My mom walked in as I was watching it and turned it off xD

You did? Buahahaha. I sat through it all rn, and well.

Definitely no unseeing that. XD

I am embarrassed I didn't know about this, because as a lit nerd I should be fairly familiar with all of Twain's works, but no. Never heard of this until now!

What's Reboot, btw? Sounds vaguely familiar but I might be thinking of something different I feel like.

Sorry, just did a quick search rn and nope didn't see it, but it looks interesting! Kinda trippy, but trippy is good. Tbh I actually still watch a few cartoons, I like Steven Universe, Adventure Time and Regular Show best. Regular Show just kills me. Rigby lol. XD 

Okay, apologies for veering off track Soph! I'm done, my bad!
