* PublicDomainSoundtrack: Part of Carl Stalling's music is based on the staple ''Danse Macabre'' music cue and Edvard Grieg's "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G2zj9oMgFmg March of the Dwarfs]]."" The rest of it, such as the part where the Skeletons dance together, is custom made music composed by Stalling himself.

While many theaters refused to show it in its heyday, the short ultimately paved the way for future hits in the series, and the cartoon still holds up to this day. The animation was almost entirely done by Disney's then-right hand man UbIwerks, save for the xylophone bone bit that was done by [[Creator/DisneysNineOldMen Les Clark]], as well as the Rooster that was animated by Wilfred Jackson, with the music composed by Carl Stalling (who suggested the idea of a fully musical cartoon to Walt) who would go on to compose for Iwerks in his own studio, and later on the WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes and [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Merrie Melodies]] series of shorts.

The first of the WesternAnimation/ClassicDisneyShorts series ''SillySymphonies'', '''''The Skeleton Dance''''', first appearing in [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation 1929]], --is certainly one of the earliest of the macabre type of toon. Did we mention it's also very catchy? It is noteworthy for being one of the earliest, if not the first, cartoon to be [[MimeAndMusicOnlyCartoon entirely musically themed and timed, with no dialogue whatsoever.]]

Compare to the 1930 {{Talkartoons}} short [[WesternAnimation/SwingYouSinners "Swing, You Sinners!"]], which is somewhat similar (albeit much more [[DerangedAnimation swingin' and crazy]]) in tone.

* XylophonesForWalkingBones: The skeletons dance to March of the Dwarfs by Edvard Grieg, which features xylophone in some parts. As seen in the trope's page image, one skeleton even uses another's vertebrae as a xylophone!
