* XylophonesForWalkingBones: Xylophone music is used in some of the skeleton scenes. It's mainly used to play quick notes [[MickeyMousing indicating the skeletons' movements]].

A [[TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation 1933]] WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse short, while not known for being particularly innovative, is quite popular among Classic Disney fans for its sheer dark, macabre tone.

* DarkerAndEdgier: WesternAnimation/TheSkeletonDance aside, which was more silly than scary, this cartoon was the first notable {{Disney}} cartoon to delve into a dark storyline which played more for BlackComedy if anything

As with the earlier Disney shorts ''WesternAnimation/TheSkeletonDance'' and ''The Haunted House'', this short's macabre tone [[GoneHorriblyRight was its own undoing]]; many theaters refused to show it (and was even BannedInEngland completely), even though Mickey was at the height of his popularity at that point. However, the short [[VindicatedByHistory has managed to become much more popular in recent years]] for the same reasons it was initially shunned.

This short was the inspiration for the later Mickey Mouse short ''WesternAnimation/RunawayBrain'', and was remade as an entire level in the video game ''VideoGame/MickeyMania''. ''VideoGame/EpicMickey'' also features the Mad Doctor prominently as a key villain (called "The Mad Doctor"), NostalgiaLevel, and even the original short itself as an unlockable bonus. It also loosely inspired the storyline [[ComicBook/MickeyMouseComicUniverse "Blaggard Castle"]] in the 1930s Mickey Mouse [[NewspaperComics newspaper comic strip]] by Creator/FloydGottfredson.

* KnightOfCerebus: Dr. XXX for the cartoon and the Creator/{{Disney}} franchise in general, as a darker villain wouldn't show up till [[Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs]]
