Produced and directed by Walt Disney, this is an animation classic with a capital C. It's the first cartoon in the Silly Symphonies series, animated by Ub Iwerks. I figured, why wait for Halloween?

Nod to Chris Willman for the link. Willman's current status at Facebook is kinda cool: "...at the abandoned Old L.A. Zoo, watching Florence & the Machine perform in a graffiti-pocked bear pit."
