The Original Sample is a testing animation created by TimetheHobo and was released on September 30, 2017 from her YouTube channel. It does not have anything to do with the official animated series of shorts due to TimetheHobo's pure imagination.

The video's animation is entirely unfinished with lacking any personal colors, leaving only sketch lines for the white background. The video does not include music or any audio either. The video consists of characters including Bendy, the deceased Boris clone, the Ink Demon "Bendy", and theMeatly himself.


During the animation, Bendy explores around the room of the deceased Boris clone then calls for someone. Bendy goes for a few steps back and hears someone knocking which startles Bendy. He turns around and notice the dead Boris clone, while some bleeding ink starts to appear in the door that was next to Bendy. Desperately, Bendy tries to break the ropes free from the Boris clone but failed and fell backwards. From the ink that was forming under the door, "Bendy" rises and looks down on Bendy. Bendy turns back around and nervously looks up at "Bendy", and smiles weakly when starting to wave a little for a greeting. Suddenly, "Bendy" tackles the original Bendy and quickly melt away together. Few moments later, theMeatly shows up on-screen towards the end and feeling puzzled as if he missed out seeing the small incident.


  • It took 3 days to finish the animation, according to TimetheHobo from the video's description.
