Spooks (1931)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Flip the Frog and his horse are caught in a thunderstorm when he sees an abandoned house and decides to go in for shelter. Once inside he runs across countless living skeletons including one who has plans for the frog. I was really surprised at how well thought out and creative this animation film is. I'm still new to Iwerks work but so far this one here is certainly the best. There are countless funny gags involving the skeletons, although none of them are hilarious but they are so creative that you can't help but be charmed by what's going on. The highlights include a scene where the skeleton tries to get Flip to eat a skeleton turkey. The end result of a skeleton eating a skeleton is also very well done.
