What it is: Animated ghost musical
Scrappy tries to scare his little brother by telling a ghost story. They soon find themselves haunted by ghosts in a spooky forest.
This is an okay, very mildly scary musical cartoon from the Charles Mintz studio; it’s something like the various skeleton cartoons, only with ghosts. It’s emphasizing the music more than the scares, but it’s well animated, though it isn’t particularly funny. I found this one on Youtube, which has of late proved to be a source for a number of things I’ve found.
