The Skeleton Dance – Disney 1929

The Skeleton Dance is a 1929 Walt Disney Silly Symphonies animated short subject in which four skeletons dance and make music around a spooky graveyard. It is the first entry in the Silly Symphonies series. In 1994 it was voted #18 of the 50 Greatest Cartoons of all times by members of the animation field. This is a great vintage Halloween cartoon that the whole family can watch together.

Enjoy!

Lonesome Ghosts – Walt Disney, 1937

Lonesome Ghosts is a 1937 Disney animated cartoon featuring the Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and Goofy trio as members of the agency “Ajax Ghost Exterminators” (often described later as precursors of the Ghostbusters).

The screaming sound heard in the beginning of this cartoon short was later used on Zorro in its fourth 1957 episode “The Ghost of the Mission”. It appropriately aired on Halloween. Mickey and his best friends are hired by telephone to evict a number of ghosts from a haunted house. Unknown to them they were hired by the ghosts themselves, four lonesome ghosts who are bored because nobody has visited the house they are haunting for a long time. They wish to play tricks on the mortals. And they do through a series of inventive gags, but by the end the trio has managed to scare the ghosts out of the house when flour accidentaly spilled over the trio.

As Donald observes “So you can’t take it, you big sissies!“. But Goofy offers what is considered the short’s most memorable quote while warily looking around him: “I’m brave but I’m careful.” Another Goofy quip is “I ain’t scared of no ghosts!”, a line repeated in Ray Parker, Jr.’s hit “Ghostbusters”, the theme song of the 1984 film of the same name.

Enjoy!

The Addams Family – Original Theme Tune

Lyrics

They’re creepy and they’re kooky,
Mysterious and spooky,
They’re all together ooky,
The Addams Family.

Their house is a museum
Where people come to see ‘em
They really are a scream
The Addams Family.

(Neat)
(Sweet)
(Petite)

So get a witches shawl on
A broomstick you can crawl on
We’re gonna pay a call on
The Addams Family.
