Everyday Occurences in Slithdale Hollow, a Pictoral Essay

The Waterson's house has a "spider problem"

A typical school day in Slithdale Hollow

A "catastrophe drill" in progress; no one knows exactly what "catastrophe" they are preparing for

The Scooby Doo reruns broadcast in Slithdale Hollow feature much more explicit violence than our reruns of the same show. The "unmasking" that ends each episode plays out much like the King in Yellow
Camilla: You, sir, should unmask.
Stranger: Indeed?
Cassilda: Indeed it's time. We have all laid aside disguise but you.
Stranger: I wear no mask.
Camilla: (Terrified, aside to Cassilda.) No mask? No mask!

As the fishermen of Slithdale Hollow say, "Pink sky at night, sailor's delight; pink sky at morning, the day's catch will be scared away by a giant monster who comes from the depths of the ocean."

 A serial murderer interrupts regularly-scheduled programs with his own pirate broadcasts. It is reported that the last words his victims hear are "Won't you be my neighbor?"

 The guides to Slithdale Hollow available at the Tourist Centre hardly seem appropriate to the task.

    1. Yep, Scarfolk was a major inspiration for this setting. (Welcome to Night Vale, Edward Gorey, and the Series of Unfortunate Events books being the other big ones.)
