The Skeleton Dance was created in 1929, as the first of Disney's Silly Symphonies. The concept was bold at the time because the film featured no familiar characters, or even a story. It was simply a fusion of music and animation designed to evoke a mood.
In spite of its age, The Skeleton Dance remains an immensely popular and critically admired cartoon. It is spookily atmospheric and kookily charming... although, those skeletons really should keep their bony hands off the long-suffering graveyard cats!
