This is a remarkable cartoon set to Danse Macabre, by French composer Camille Saint-Saëns. I remember watching this video in elementary school every year during Halloween. One of the best short length Halloween animations ever created. This was shown on and produced by PBS in the 1980s. I remember watching this 1980s version, If you are looking for the 1970s filmstrip version look below this video:
