Here are two Halloween-themed vintage animated shorts from the late 20s and early 30s. Seeing the old style animation is incredible, and it's great to find them so easily online.
This is a Felix The Cat short, called Switches Witches, with an added synchronized music and sound effects score added for early TV showings in the '50s. Even though producer Pat Sullivan's name is the only one credited, Otto Messmer [Felix's creator] was largely responsible for this one. Originally released in October 1927.
1927 Felix The Cat - Switches Witches:
This Toby the Pup short, called Halloween was made by Dick Huemers, Sid Marcus and Art Davis. Originally released May 1, 1931. Twelve Toby cartoons were produced from 1930 to 1931, though very few still survive today.
