Storyline

A mouse and a cuckoo bird, skeptical about the existence of ghosts, are startled by a midnight visit from a sextet of spirits, all men who once wooed a Florador show-girl. The specters do a song-and-dance routine from the gay-90's era of show-business. They all fade away at dawn, leaving the mouse and the cuckoo bird less-convinced skeptics than they were before the witching hour. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Midnight Frolics was a pretty entertaining Columbia cartoon by Ub Iwerks
27 November 2009 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Just watched this Columbia/Screen Gems Color Rhapsody cartoon on Uncle John's Crazy Town site. The actual cartoon had some black frames that obscured some of the beginning scenes so Uncle John showed some frame grabs from a black and white print he tinted blue to help explain some of the starting settings. This is another dark and stormy night setting with a haunted house that inhabits-besides ghosts-a mouse and a cuckoo bird. They are skeptical creatures concerning ghosts but they haven't seen them yet. The ghosts themselves sing about being the spirits of the men "who danced with the Flora Dora Girls". They then play some imaginary instruments. In between those sequences knocks a goofy ghost who displays his own fright methods that doesn't impress anybody as they keep slamming the door on his face. I've basically revealed nearly everything that happens in this Ub Iwerks animated short so I'll just say I recommend Midnight Frolics for the entertainment of the music and some clever gags.
