At long last I have an excuse to make a blog post about my OTHER true love, “Back to the Future”! It’s genuinely tragic to me that there is no true link between Disney and BTTF, because I have so many feels for BTTF. I could go on about it for hours. (I do, actually.) But I try to adhere to my own blog rules which means this blog is for Disney content. Even if there’s only a peripheral Disney connection… But BTTF has none!
UNTIL NOW. Mwahaha. Last week I was home from work, and my son and I watched an episode of “Phineas and Ferb” that I hadn’t seen before that’s entitled “Phineas and Ferb’s Quantum Boogaloo”. If you’ve never seen or heard of “Phineas and Ferb”, which is kind of unlikely but still vaguely possible, it’s a Disney Channel cartoon series about two brothers who do incredibly unlikely things on a daily basis throughout summer vacation, to the generally obsessive annoyance of their teenaged older sister who is intent on getting them caught by their mother.
…Admit it, that song is totally in your head now.
It’s Halloween!! The bestest best day of the year! Unless you don’t like it. In which case OK. 🙂
But either way, one of the really fun things about Halloween is how much Disney celebrates it, too. They have exactly the kind of fun that you should have with it – submerging you in spooky fun, just scary enough to kind of make you grin without going too far. 🙂
If you’re needing a little Disney infusion into your Halloween, here are some of my favourite cartoon shorts!
Always a classic: The Dancing Skeletons, from 1929!
This has been my favourite Disney cartoon since forever. From 1952, Donald’s Trick or Treat! Got a catchy tune and plus Donald’s feet change colour!
No batch of Disney Halloween cartoons could EVER be complete without the masterpiece, “Lonesome Ghosts” from 1937!
Embedding is disabled on this particular video, but here is the Headless Horseman song from “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” (1949), performed by the wonderful Bing Crosby!
