The Other Skeleton Dance

In 1929, Ub Iwerks came up with “The Skeleton Dance” for Walt Disney. Three years later, his own studio featured Flip the Frog dancing with a lady skeleton in “Spooks.” She’s a chaste skeleton as she’s covering her breasts.

There are a couple of gags in the scene, like when the two halves of the skeleton separate (but the upper half can move in mid-air on its own). Finally, Flip lands on the skeleton and leaves behind a pile of bones.
