Yes, I blogged about it before. I love Saint-Saëns' Danse Macabre, it is one of my favourite pieces of music for Halloween. And I found this piece of animation on Youtube yesterday and couldn't resist. Yes, animation is a big word, as there is barely any, the drawings are pretty crude, the colours are iffy at best (and so darn pastel), but for some reason I find it irresistible. A still dance with skelettons is spooky enough, especially with that music. According to the Youtube description this comes from PBS and was made in the 80s. I used to watch British sitcoms on PBS. I wish I had seen this short film. Since I have sadly little time to watch and read horror stories, those short films put me in the Halloween mood. I hope this one does the same to you.

Love the Danse Macabre music and the animation. Very Halloweeny! True it could stand a darker color palette, but I still like it too! :o)
La nuit sur le mont chauve de Fantasia tu connais?
Pour l'Halloween c,est parfait
What magnificent music. I never get tire of listening to it. And Halloween creeps, and dances nearer...
Parlant de Chernobog dans Fantasia de Disney, il y a un autre villain (et un film) un peu oublié dans la même veine The Horned King dans le film The Black Cauldron. On l'a probablement vu il y a très longtemps, faudrait probablement se le retaper.
