The Skeleton Dance (1929)
Ub Iwerks unofficially remade the 1929 film he had created for Disney.
Much of the animation of the skeletons dancing in Skeleton dance was reused in this short.

One specific camera shot (through the skeleton's mouth) is clearly spoofed in Danny Elfman's dance number in Forbidden Zone. Elfman is a huge fan of 30's cartoons, and has spoofed Skeleton Dance (and related cartoon shorts) quite often.
