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).

And finally, here's the entire Toby the Pup filmography. Cartoons denoted with * are known to exist today. The others are considered as lost.

I had always thought that Bimbo was the only bizarro Mickey character out there. I'd like to see some more of these Toby cartoons. I love that old rubber hose animation from the 30's, the design always had such a clean, solid look to it. I wish someone would find away to resurrect it and use it in modern animation.
