A Good Cartoon For Halloween
20 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one long series of gags revolving around skeletons. It is consistently entertaining; not hilarious but fun to watch at all times. As you view this, you wonder what form of skeleton was coming next, and with what gags.

In other words, after the first one, then we see a skeleton-butler, a female skeleton (who Flip dances with), a three-piece band of bones, followed by a skeleton dog and a little cuckoo bird skeleton.

The main skeleton, meanwhile, measures Skip. He wants to add our beloved to his collection of "remains." So, with the humor you also get some horror-suspense as this weirdo goes after Flip, trying to kill him, chasing him all over the house with a big knife.

The ending is clever and different from what you might expect.
