    My dad takes business trips to Korea. When he first went in the early nineties, he brought back a knock-off doll from this show for me.

    He threw it out when I was a teenager because he said it made him nervous. I asked him why and he said, "Well, it's the voice box it has. It's broken and it says the creepiest things."

    Weird part? It was just a stuffed plushie thing. It didn't have any automated features.

    Used to work on the show in the 80's

    I was just a helper monkey, but I remember a little about it.

    First off, the reason all of you remember this show from different times is because, as far as I know, they were making the fucking show from the fifties to the 90's, when they finally shut down. Weird show to work on, let me tell you. the dudes working the puppets and voicing them (real cheap fucks up here) were CREEPY, and never fucking talked to anyone else who worked on the show. And that poor little girl man, they were always scaring the shit out of her. Sometimes I had to pry the puppets off of her when they attacked her with them. Seriously.

    And another thing was the writing. You guys might be traumatized by what you saw, but over half of the episodes we made while I worked their were never shown because they were too fucking creepy. the write (just one) was a real sadistic child hating fuck, let me tell you.

    Anyways, got any questions?

    my therapist was kind of cool though he knew about the show he told me other kids who saw him also watched it he even had a bunch of pictures of skintaker and horace horrible on his wall.
    but It was weird the main character of the show Janice? nobody drew her right! in most of the drawings she was white but I remember her being black like me and looking just like the drawing in OP image.

    I think the creator was some rich old fart who wanted to make a kids show or something. all I know is he owned the studio and let us use it for free.

    I only met him once, in my 3rd year working there. He was actually completely normal, cept he didn't look old enough to be producing the show since the 50's/

    He just stood there and watched, the entire day. Didn't say a word other then congratulating the writer on another fantastic episode. He was normal, otherwise.

    are you me?
    cause I was working for those freaky fucks too.
    the only tolerable one was the one who voiced pirate Percy.
    though he was a gigantic pussy who was afraid of his own shadow.
    I quit after the guy who voiced the skintaker stabbed me.
    I swear they must have been paying the girl bucket loads to stay on that show.
    funny thing is I can't seem to find any of them now.
    well, other than the girl who ended up in a sanitarium.

    Haven't a clue. Went by production to check on her a few months after I quit (I'm not a pedophile or anything, but they were terrible to that girl. I felt so sorry for her), and they had a new girl playing Janice. And a new Skin-taker puppet (no surprise, thing was falling apart)

    Dude, when did you work on it? I was in the eighties as I said.

    Yeah, I remember Percy's guy. He seemed really distant and out of it, unlike the others who were very... intense. I think I remember trading a few words with him once, but he was just mumbling.

    I swear it was 80s. One of my tutors worked on it for like a month in the stop-motion department or something; he didn't elaborate. Something about having to finish up late at night, and the sounds there.

    All he had was one section of film - test footage I think - of this trippy dream sequence. At least I think it was a dream sequence. There was a lot of red. I heard screaming on the track, but nobody believed me at the time. When I asked him about it, he said nothing.

    It was my uni's art department grail to find the episode he worked on; but it never really took off on our shores. I guess they just outsourced now and then.

    Does anyone remember the halloween episode? Where Percey and Janice go out to find the candy treasure of blacktooth the pirate? I thought it was pretty cool when I was little, but thinking back, it was creepy as hell. I mean, I think it was hinted at, but I'm positive that Blacktooth's ship was made out of teeth he had pulled out of kids, and his sails were made of their scalps. Then, when Horace somehow got Blacktooth's job of "collecting" the teeth of bad children, I could swear he said my name when he was reading the naughty list.

    My brother used to be a co-owner of a studio and he told me all about these guys.

    Basically he said that one day these 3 guys just showed up and asked for a chance to pitch a show to him and his partner. So he pitched it to them, using the puppets to demonstrait a scene they were describing. For the love of god my brother said he couldnt stand any of their voices except the one who was pitching it. But his partner was fucking facinated as all hell by it and said it had great potential.

    So my brother said
    "Alright, we'll give you a shot. I don't really get what your trying to sell but iv been wrong before so why not?"

    Remember now, this was back in the 80's and i was much younger then my bro, so after school let out(i was like 15) and when mom was still at work i would go to the studio to hang out and watch as some of the shows were made. I even got a summer job as a stage hand.

    Anyways, i was sitting in the first time they shot for this show. My brother and i were sitting by the camera with his partner as all of this went down.

    They get started and not even ten minutes go by and the girl starts crying her eyes out. They call cut and we try to calm her down. This happens another 5 times before i have to leave. What they were making this poor girl go through was horrible. I actually got to see the pilot for the show. There were 5 lines of dialog in it and the rest were just the puppets moving slowly and 10 minutes worth of the girl crying.
    These people were sick.
    >> Anonymous 02/20/11(Sun)20:09 No.23658988

    I sat in again 3 months later and they were still shooting this fucking show. I could not believe that this shit had any ratings at all.

    Anyways, i saw that they had a new girl instead of the last one, so i asked my brother what happened to the other girl and he just asked me 'which one?' They had gone through 5! 5 DIFFERANT ACTORS!

    I had to ask my brother why this fucking show was still being made and he just told me that
    "There is something about it that we don't see. Alvin(his partner) sees something great in this show but he wont tell me. I know its not just him, the ratings are great! One of our best low budget shows!"

    Back to the shooting. It was the same. Damn. Thing. The girl would cry and they would stop. Only now they had a fucking boat.

    A week later, guess where i was?! Back there at this fucking set. I just couldn't let it go. I had to know what the point of the show was!
    I actually got lucky this time since the writer was there. Tall motherfucker. Greasy as shit hair. Wore decent clothes. Semi-formal stuff.
    But what stood out were his eyes. I'll never forget how they looked. They were dull and dark. They honestly looked like doll eyes. I didn't have the balls to talk to him. And all the while he just stood off to the side and watched with a blank face.

    you must mean the head writer.
    Because when I worked on the show there were three other writers who worked under him.
    One was obsessed with yellow and wore it damn near all the time, another looked like a person who couldn't decide what gender they were and dressed in mismatching clothes, and the last one was all hunched and beetle like with a admittedly snazzy business suit .

    This guy's a fucking troll. I still remember the pilot, it was pretty awesome. Percy and Janice find a box belonging to some guy named Balon, and they're trying to decide whether to open it or not. Skintaker takes it when they're not looking, Horace calls some of his friends, the Gill-Guys from Relex, to fight Percy and Janice. They manage to get to Skintaker, but not before he manages to open the box. Shit, I remember something incredible happened afterwards, but for the life of me I can't remember what it was.

    Half the people here are trolling. I never remember Janice crying. She ALWAYS had a smile on her face, even when the the worst shit happened to her and Percy. Also, what the hell are guys talking about with screaming? They'd do these really weird sing-a-longs, and I'd always fall asleep to them. I had a problem sleepwalking, so while I was dreaming I was a pirate laughing with Janice, I'd somehow up in my backyard.

    I remember this show! It creeped the fuck out of me when I was younger. Apparently I got so scared my mom stopped letting me watch tv for a while haha. When I got older I tried to find episodes but I couldn't. They had all but stopped playing repeats at that point. I saw part of an episode at midnight on a public access tv, but then my parents came back in the room and turned the channel. This was in 1998. I haven't seen an episode yet. Does anyone know where I can find episodes or dvds? Anything?

    Oh, here's a shitty picture I found from the Christmas special.

    Cont. Again.

    My brother and i kinda became alittle obsessed when it came to understanding the show. Nothing to huge but we did spend a few sleepless nights talking about it.(that can sound very gay in a certain state of mind) I started tracking down any information i could about the 3 guys that pitched it to my brother and i found out that these guys had been to 9 differant states already with this show. This was the third instate(Ohio) studio they went to with this. They had been at this since the early 70's, late 60's. I even found a few pictures of the three guys that pitched it from back in the 70's and they looked ecactly the same. Well one of them had longer hair, one grew a mustache and the last one had glasses now. other then that, they were EXACTLY THE SAME!

    My brother started to fucking hate everything about the show and he was just itching to find a reason to get rid of these guys. As soon at the ratings started to sour due to fans not liking the latest girl(the 8th!) he finally put a stop to it. He told them to shoot the last two episodes and take their puppet shit and get lost. They were very mellow about it all honestly.

    about five years later Alvin up and killed himself. ODed on perscription pills for headaches. They found the guy sitting in his chair watching a movie.

    The tape said Candle Cove Series Finale.[spoilers]

    Of course they had a lot of different girls, the shows been filming since the 60's if I recall correctly based on the information I've gathered.

    I remember at least two redhead girls, and possibly one that could have been South American (with a red wig though, I don't know if I'm imaging something).

    I noticed that the actress changed though, when I was watching the show. But I remember all of them at one point stopped acting (sometimes in the middle of a line) and just look at the camera real scared, not crying but weeping and always wiserping something under her breath. I always felt that she was talking to me but she always seemed so worried.

    I looked EVERYWHERE for this show and I eventually found a bunch of unmarked VHS tapes at some thrift store and I was told that they could be Candle Cove. I decided to pick just one out of fear that this was just static like the other tapes I've bought over the years, but no, this one had actual episodes.

    The first one was actually an episode where the girl breaks down and starts weeping and whispering. It looked like a different girl then from when I was a kid, I put the volume to it's highest to hear what she was saying and I couldn't understand any of it, it sounded like some kind of made up language, but still some sort of language, she uses the same words sometimes, I think it could be esperanto or something...
    What fucked everything up was when I still had the volume way high it suddenly cut to YOU HAVE TO GO INSIDE and I freaked the fuck out.
    I'm not watching that tape ever again.

    I recently purchased a film reel simply titled 'Cartoon for Kids'. But it's not a cartoon, it's a black and white puppet show called The Candle Cove.
    I heard it's the pilot.

    The first few minutes was a bunch of very poorly made puppets sitting in a room, they talked but never moved their mouths and I kept hearing noises of children shouting in the background (weirdest part was that it always felt that the yells were coming from outside of my house rather then the film, but seeing that I was watching this in the middle of the night, I highly doubt it).

    Suddenly I started getting color footage from what appears to be the JFK assassination, but not that famous tape, like different angles. They inter cut very fast. Also a bunch of people holding hands lying in the jungle, like Jonestown. The weird thing is that the copyright mark in the credits says 1959.

    I'm guessing some one must have spliced different reels together, but whoever did so must have been a pretty fancy editor, I see no cuts in the actual reel.

    I'm Certain that they were 30 minutes, but I never saw a single commercial.

    I recall there being a Live-Action intro, it started with a shot of Janice's house, with the words Candle Cove in bright letters and Calliope music , then it transitioned to Janice's bedroom door, then her closet where she sat with her eyes closed holding A Pirate Percy Doll in one hand and a Shin-Taker in the other. At that point there was a really cheap "Dream" sequence, then the episode would start. Anyone remember that?

If I'm not mistaken the last thing I remember from the last episode is that suddenly there was silence. The crying and the screaming stopped. Then the screaming started up again and you saw Skin Taker walking away. I can swear I saw a fresh piece added to his cape.

    Hmm /co/mrades I live in fort worth and when I was in the third grade I went to this kind of crappy summer camp and one day they took us on a field trip to a television station it was pretty cool for the most part I got to meet some news anchors (it was a local station public access nothing big) but during the tour me and some friends snuck away and started exploring the building ourselves we ended up getting caught by a tall man in a suit he asked us what we were doing and we told him we were on a field trip he asked us if we wanted to see the show he worked for and he told us it was called candle cove (sound familiar? ) he brought us to a set it was covered in dust and there was only one working lightbulb it was hard to see but I could make out three puppets hanging from the ceiling by their strings and there was a big foam boat bolted to the floor behind some cardboard waves the puppets freaked me out but this man put his hands on my shoulders and ushered me and my friends to a corner there was a little girl a little younger than me there she was sniffling and trying not to cry the man was glaring at her and she stopped he told us to wait in the corner and that he would be back to deal with us when he left the girl started crying very hard we tried to ask her what was wrong but we couldn't understand her through her crying while we were waiting our teacher came into the room and led us by the arm back to the tour group.
    at the end of the tour the guide asked us if we knew of any of their programs and I said "candle cove" but she said she hadn't heard of it and that maybe it was new.
    I remember watching that channel for the next few weeks but I never saw candle cove.

    the "janice" that I worked with the one that ended up in a sanitarium had as they claimed and I'm quoting here "Torn off jagged chunks of her skin with a rusty cleaver".

    I remember that.

    I swear to God, never saw this show as a kid, but about five years ago when I was in Montana, one of the local stations was playing that late at night, when they couldn't get infomercials to fill time.

    Seriously, the fuck?

    I remember him wearing the cape in one episode. It was one of those weird special episodes where it was a bit longer than usual and they'd turn towards the audience and say someone's name. He would flip his cape over and wear it like a skin and it would cover about half of his face at this time. Then he'd go "Can eyeball ask you for a favour, Andrew? I've got my sights on your beautiful brown eyes"
    It was the only time I remember him talking like that or wearing the cape like that. I was fine when I watched it but this was around the time the therapist made me stop watching cause of my strict dad (I'm the poster from earlier) and a few days later thinking about it would make me so frightened. The thought alone gives me chills now, cause that was my name and eye colour.

    Candle Cove is a canadian show they shot it here in Montreal!

    I do, but I had never seen them before until after he died. I figured they were just airing unreleased episodes because he had guest starred on them back in the day. I can understand why they weren't released. I was offended that they'd air them as a cash in stunt after his death. Especially given the subject matter.

    Hey guys I don't remember this show having a opening
    it would just sort of start
    also I don't think it had a proper timeslot because I remember it being on at different times sometimes it was on before school or after school or right before bed time
    sometimes it would come on right in the middle of another show like one minute gi joe than boom candle cove did the network just have a hard time placing it?
    another thing everytime the show ended their were no credits just a high pitched ringing noise and then it would go back to whatever was playing before the show started I always thought that was some editing glitch.

    This is really weird... I swear I remember watching the pilot when I was a kid. I still remember because I was just flipping through the tv, and every channel was news coverage of the Challenger disaster except one. The minute I turned to that channel, the only thing on the screen was Skintaker looking directly at the camera, laughing. Then they cut to the ship sailing through a sea of fire, with Janice and Percy crying on it while a voice kept saying "YOU HAVE TO GO INSIDE" over and over again. The whole time, you can still hear Skintaker laughing.

    I once bought the Candle Cove movie on VHS at a thrift store. I remembered seeing it in the theater as a kid. The spooky thing is, that theater burned down the day after I saw the movie. Contrary to how I'd remembered it as a kid, the movie on the tape was animated, instead of the live-action/puppet hybrid from the show proper. It was a pretty ordinary 80s licensed animated cash-in, although my VHS player caught on fire before I could eject it after it ended. The next day, after I got home from work, I saw that my house had burned down. When I drove back to work to tell my boss (the idea made sense at the time), I found that the offices I worked at bad burned down! Pissed off, I turned back to my car, only to find it had burned down in my absense. I walked over to a Motel 6 to spend the night, but they turned me down; when I asked why, the lady simply pointed to the old "No Shirt, No Shoes, No Service" sign. When I looked down, I realized that my clothes had caught on fire!

    What was up with all the fourth wall breaking in this show?
    I'm not just talking about the skin taker either it seemed like every character talked to the audience every episode
    Pirate percy had his come with us thing while his doll eyes stared at the camera
    Laughingstock had "you have to go inside"
    Horrid Horrace "Come on down to the studio" EVERY FUCKING EPISODE
    we all know skin takers famous "to grind your skin" phrase
    but janice had one that was weird because it just made no sense she kept muttering "stop it, stop it STOP IT!" into the camera like she was looking at you
    maybe all this fourth wall stuff was meant to be implenmented like interactivity? like a early dorra the explorer? come to think of it Janice was kind of like dora a young hispanic girl going on adventures? maybe the creators of that show were fans of this one?

    Man, nobody talks about the educational inserts they had between the puppetshit but I thought that was the worst part. There was one where Janice went to the museum, and it was just her having this awkward, one-sided conversation about ancient Egypt with this sick looking mummy. It had a weird name- Lemon girl or something. I just remember the camera slowly zooming in on its black, hollow sockets while Janice talked.

    And I *like* creepy shit, even as a kid. The Black Cauldron was my favorite Disney movie and I loved ghost stories and all that shit.

    I only remember because it came on before Saturday Morning Watchmen.

    Man, that was right up there with the Aquaman movie.

    Its on my tv too
    which is weird because this tv isn't connected to cable/sattalite it's nalog only most channels are only static, blue screen or cards theres even one with that old indian test card but channel 44 seems to have candle cove playing
    it's even weirder because I didn't think there was any more analog signals since the mid 00's

    I can't find much of candle cove /co/
    but I thought this was kind of cool
    Aparently some russian tv station used a few seconds from candle cove (specifically laughingstocks "you have to go inside" catch phrase) as test footage
    Westaboo's you think?

    Man my nephew said this was on the other day and wanted me to watch it with him. I remembered it as a kid and it gave me nightmares but I did for him.
    Fuck it still did! I went to sleep that night and had a nightmare about that fucking monocle guy coming into my room and just watching me.

    At first I didn't believe the show was real...then my little three year old brother started talking about it.

    He looked like he was in some kind of trance. I couldn't get any kind of response out of him at all, not even after the static was turned off, until exactly 30 minutes had passed. The more he watched it, though, the paler his face became.

    I really don't know what to make of it, guys. It's starting to scare the fuck out of me.

    It's not been running on BBC, it's on a station called AUX.

    Apparently it's just called Inside. I can only watch about 30 seconds of it before I have to look away. The eyes...oh my god the eyes...

    Doh, it seems the search function failed me somehow, sorry. How'd you find the link?

    Well, it seems to be just a pretty unpopular TV show, can't find anything about the actors. And why some of them are credited as "Himself"?

    I figure they did it so we'd think the puppets were real when we were kids. No other reason why all of the puppets were listed as 'himself'. When a real actor comes onto a tv show and plays himself they always say and so and so as 'himself'. But these are puppets. They can't be themselves because the're not alive. Right?

    To me Candle Cove wasn't just a show
    Once I saw it I became obsessed
    Granted it was kind of cheaply done
    Really it wasn't well written either
    It's true that not many people have heard of it but
    Nobody's heard of lot's of good shows
    Dosn't make them bad shows
    You may not feel the same way as me
    Obviously many in this thread don't some do though
    Usually people have never heard of it
    Really can't believe this thread is so long!
    Sure thought no one else remembered it at least on co
    Kills me I can't find this show on dvd maybe
    It will if enough people show interest or sign a petition
    Not having anyone else remember really grinds my skin.

    I used to have this book about forgotten TV shows and films (a friend borrowed it and lost it which is why I don't lend books anymore), I bought it at one of those library sales where they get rid of stuff nobody checks out. The book was from the 80s when people used to swap VHS and betamax tapes around to watch shows and this book was sort of a guide to the esoteric stuff from everywhere like spy shows from the USSR and early Japanese live-action stuff.

    What that book said (I can't remember the name though, it might have been by Leonard Maltin or just edited, I dunno) is that there were TWO Candle Coves. One show was made in the late 50s, but the studio folded and the creators went from studio to studio trying to revive it (apparently you can find some of these failed pilots and auditions as well) until finally in the late 70s they got another show, why they went around for twenty years trying to get this made makes no sense. Supposedly they used the exact same puppets and voice actors (or close enough to sound the same) which is probably why people are remembering the show in different decades.

    Anyone know the book I'm talking about? It was a light blue cover and had that terrible 80s graphics on it.
