Skeletons With Ghosts

How can a skeleton have a ghost? Isn’t a skeleton dead already? Ah, it’s pretty easy to ignore stuff like that and just enjoy the fun and creative morphing in “Minnie the Moocher,” one of the greatest Fleischer cartoons.

Skeletons, watched by Betty and Bimbo, drink (presumably illegal) liquor. Their bones turn to black, then white again as they die. Ghosts arise and resume singing the title song.

Willard Bowsky and Ralph Somerville are the credited animators.
