Hallowe'en-ish Cartoons and the like

So, him over at Deadpan Flook, her over at Your Daily Cartoon and probably a billion other people have been posting some of their favourite "spooky" cartoons this week. And I want a slice of that pumpkin pie for myself, so here you go (bwahahaha thunder & lightning etc).

First up is one I'd never seen until Deadpan Flook featured it, this is Ub Iwerks' Skeleton Frolic from 1937:

Next up is Bob Clampett's Jeepers Creepers (1939) starring Porky Pig - skip to 1:15 to start the cartoon!

Here's a longer one, 22 minutes of fun from Will Vinton's Claymation Comedy of Horrors (1991):

From those Fleischer nutters is the insanity of 1930's Swing You Sinners!:

Now we've Tex Avery's Who Killed Who? (1943) in which a detective's investigating a murder in a haunted house:

Dr. Seuss' Halloween Is Grinch Night (1977) by Gerald Baldwin has one of the best soundtracks EVER. For the impatient people, the fun starts at 18:27...

Whilst Sally Cruikshank's Face Like A Frog (1987) is definitely amongst the top ten cartoons EVER:

Something from Estonia now - Rein Raamat's 1983 film Hell:

Here we have Harry Forbes' The Fresh Lobster (1935) starring Billie Bletcher in a live action/cartoon crossover of madness:

And THIS is The Trap Door - the music video!

Wot A Night (1931) from the Van Beuren studios stars the original Tom & Jerry who find themselves in a VERY haunted castle:

And finally, a full-length feature film! 1967's Rankin Bass film Mad Monster Party? starring Boris Karloff, Allen Swift, Gale Garnett and Phyllis Diller, with character design's by Mad's Harvey Kurtzman. You won't see many better films than this:

  1. Nice selection of stuff there! I'm going to save most of them until tomorrow to watch though, so as I can add them to my Halloween viewing list! ;)
