Silly Symphony – The Skeleton Dance, a 1929 Walt Disney short. From Wikipedia:

While many claim that the musical score was adapted from the Saint-Saëns composition Danse Macabre, Carl Stalling explained, in a 1969 interview, that it was actually a foxtrot set in a minor key. Stalling suggested the idea for a series of musical one-shot cartoons to Disney at a gag meeting in 1929. Stalling also adapts Edvard Grieg’s “The March of the Trolls” for part of the skeleton dance music…

It is the first entry in the Silly Symphony series. In 1994, it was voted #18 of the 50 Greatest Cartoons of all time by members of the animation field.

There’s more Halloween in the archives.
