Carnival Kerfuffle: The Animatic starring Beppi the Clown
The instant I saw this fucker in Cuphead I only had one voice for him in my head; Charlie Adler. Audio is from a bunch of clips from Cow and Chicken. My best guess as to what Beppi’s behavior was like is exactly that of the Red Guy and if Cuphead were a modern cartoon it would have the absurd and almost uncomfortable humor of a 90′s cartoon. I hope you all enjoy this.
I got curious and translated the title of the OST ‘’ Yonaka Ni Kiku To Kowai ‘’
And that’s when all the piece came together.
Yonaka Ni Kiku To Kowai means something like:
‘’ I am scared when I hear it in the middle of the night. ‘’
The ‘’ I ‘’ here…. Is Shinsou.
Shinsou is scared when he hears ‘’it’’ in the middle of the night…
‘’ It ‘’ is all the noises you hear in the song. The laughing children, the whispers, the bloody screams… That’s what he hears everytime he tries to sleep. The voices from his past.. And because of them, he just cannot sleep. That’s where his bags comes from.
The humming in the background must be his mother’s lullaby. Because he wouldn’t be able to sleep at night, she would sing him to sleep. Her voice would cover the voices in his head….
