1929 Disney Halloween Skeleton Dance Cartoon

Although this cartoon is from 1929, it was played every Halloween in the 1950's on Walt Disney's Disneyland television show.

No CGI means the graphics look a little primitive now, but on television sets those days the pictures weren't great. This cartoon did it's job and spooked us kids in the 50's.

It had everything - black cats in the graveyard, bats, a screech owl, howling dogs, dancing skeletons (and a bouncing skull) . . . and then a crowing rooster ruins the fun.
