It was 5:30 p.m. My younger brother, who was seven at the time, was watching a local station in its child TV show block. After watching Johnny Bravo, Geo's World came on, with his favorite episode. I can barely remember the episode’s plot, but it was about Geo Guy trying to help a kid named Jack. It felt sort of low-budget, but since my brother liked the episode, I didn't mind him watching it.
The episode started with Geo Guy walking through the park, until suddenly, he notices that Jack is stuck in a very high point of a tree. Normally he would save him, but he didn't. Jack fell from the tree and died. My brother was surprised. What was going on? What happened to this episode?
It soon showed Geo Guy walking along a street, but the odd thing was that he looked very forlorn and depressed instead of happy smiling. I faintly heard a sound of crying and whispers. The sound was starting to creep me out, but I tried ignoring it. The sound got different this time. It was a murmur. It wasn't a language, but more like a gurgled cry.
As the noise got more indistinguishable and loud over the next minute, the picture began to get weird. The sidewalk started to go in directions that seemed impossible based on the physics of Geo Guy's walking. And the dismal face of the stick figure was slowly curling into a smirk.
On the 7th minute, the murmur turned into a bloodcurdling scream (the kind of scream painful to hear) and the picture was getting more obscure. Colors were happening that shouldn't have been possible at the time. Geo Guy's face began to fall apart.
His eyes rolled on the bottom of his chin like two marbles in a fishbowl, and his curled smile was pointing upward on the left side of his face. The buildings became rubble floating in midair and the sidewalk was still impossibly navigating in warped directions, a few seeming inconceivable with what we, as humans, know about direction.
This distorted screaming lasted until 8 minutes and a few seconds in, and then it abruptly cuts to the Geo Guy's face at the credits of the end for some reason with what sounded like a broken music box playing in the background. This happened for about 30 seconds, and whatever was in that remaining 30 seconds I haven't been able to get a sliver of information about. My brother ran away from the living room screaming. I've yet to find a copy of this horrid version of the episode, but it is out there. I know it. Well, I'm pretty sure.
