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!

* OurMonstersAreWeird: At the end, the skeletons accidentally combine into a bizarre, Cyriak-esque bone creature with four heads stacked on top of each other.

The first of the WesternAnimation/ClassicDisneyShorts series ''SillySymphonies'', '''''The Skeleton Dance''''', first appearing in [[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.]]

* ShoutOut: WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy had Grim re-enact this in an episode where they are stuck in a grammophone which turns reality into a 20s black-and-white cartoon.
** Also as one of the shows that Johnny Blaze would be channel-surfing through in TheMovie of ''Film/GhostRider''. Doubles as a TakeThat and some neat foreshadowing when taking Johnny's reaction into account.
