The Hitcher

Product Description

The DC Hitcher is a tribute piece designed in admiration of what’s in my opinion the mecca of haunted houses. This scene stealing eye candy is perfect for any home haunt or cemetery scene!

The Hitcher is a full size motor driven skeletal animation that has a nearly 6’ tall head height and on overall height of closer to 7’ with the raised top hat.   He’s been dying for a ride with his right arm mimicking a hitchhiking motion, head tilting from side to side, and his other hand holding his top hat.

This dual low voltage animation can have either matching motor speeds for the arm and head, or a slightly slower motor in the head armature (shown here) for a less repetitive motion.

Skeleton is mounted on a thick steel base and is detachable to the waist for easy shipping.   Skeleton and top hat are painted using a high quality theatrical UV blue finish, but can be painted with other colors upon request (at an additional charge).

This animation ships in 3 parts and requires very simple assembly.  Animation includes the following:
Skeletal prop,  hat, steel base, and power supply.

* Please note – this does not “glow” without a proper UV light which is not included.   We can paint using a “glow in the dark” paint for an additional charge, but cannot guarantee how long the paint will hold its glow capability.
