It's Time for The Skeleton Dance!


October is turning out to be ridiculously hectic, and my 'To Do' list doesn't seem to be getting any shorter, so I decided my flagging Halloween spirit needed a little boost from Disney's, The Skeleton Dance (1929).





Reminder: Justine, of Justine's Halloween, is holding her annual virtual Halloween Blog Party on October 26. See details here.

    1. Hi linnea-maria,

      I'm a tad over-committed at the moment and I was feeling stressed, so 'The Skeleton Dance' was a nice little dose of Halloween cheer! :)

  2. Fully agree with Linnea-Maria's comment. The Skeleton Dance always makes me smile, no matter how often I see it. It's the 2 cats at the beginning I love the most about it :-)

    1. Hi Maynard,

      Yes, I love the graveyard cats too! Although the poor things have to put up with quite a bit of mischief from those skellies! Haha.

  4. That cartoon is so cute! Those cats can really stretch, hey? :) Don't stress out too much. You still have 10 days! Well, I guess that would be nine where you are. Still, that's pretty good! Thanks so much for the shout-out about my party. :)

    1. Hi Justine,

      It is cute! I always get a laugh out of the little Scottish Highland dance bit that the skellies do. Ha! Yes, those cats really can stretch. I'm always amazed at how flexible my Phoebe is. Cats are like furry little yogis. :)

      I'm excited about Halloween, but October has certainly thrown all sorts of obstacles in the path of my plans. From what I'm hearing around Blogland, it's been a hectic time for a lot of us. Must be in the stars. :) I'm trying not to stress and writing tons of lists.

      Oh, you're totally welcome! I hope plenty of blog buddies will participate in your party again this year.

    1. Hi don,

      I agree, it is a classic! It's amazing to think it was made back in 1929.

    1. Hi Goth Clothes,

      Oh, my pleasure! Yes, Justine has some very inspiring Halloween crafts on her blog at the moment. I know you're an all-year-round Halloweenie too. 'The Skeleton Dance' was just the spooky tonic I needed right now, to help me rise above some of life's more tedious day-to-day hassles. :)

  9. Love The Skeleton dance! One of the best things Disney ever did. Just made my way here from Maynard's site. Can't wait to see what you guys do for The Addams Family, one of my very favorite shows growing up.
