The night promises to be a scary one. Lightning flashes. The wind howls. A tree branch in the shape of a hand seems to grab for a frightened owl that spins its head around like a top. The clock on the church tower strikes midnight, sending the bats flying out of the belfry. Two cats on gravestones fight by pulling and stretching each other's noses like taffy. A skeleton rises from behind a gravestone, frightening the fur off the cats. But an owl's hooting scares it, and it retaliates by throwing its skull and knocking the bird's feathers off. It's time for the skeletons to dance; and they perform as no living creatures could. Written by
It is amazing! I love it! It is another great cartoon for Halloween, my favorite holiday. It will give you the creeps & the shivers; also a very chilling musical score by Looney Tunes' musical director Carl Stalling including "The March of the Trolls" by Edvard Grieg that'll keep you up until midnight.
I love when the two black cats fight on two gravestones; until they're scare out of their skins by the first skeleton to appear in the cartoon. And when the skeleton tiptoes through the cemetery, he sees the noisy owl (which actually scares him at first), then uses his head -- literally, to knock the feathers off the owl - that was funny. I love the graveyard background, it's very well done. Though I thought it's mean to use that poor cat like a violin, using a bow and the cat's tail as the strings. Overall, I think it is an excellent start of "The Silly Symphonies" cartoons.
