Toby the Pup in "Halloween"
Here's a great spooky cartoon from Toby the Pup series. Like "The Milkman" presented here ten days ago, this is a very funny and inventive cartoon with beautiful rubber hose animation, and lot of obvious Fleischer influences.
For more info about the song "Smarty" used in this cartoon, check out David Gerstein's The Cartoon Pop Music Page .
Also, you can watch the entire cartoon here (unfortunately, this version on YouTube suffers from audio sync problems).
