31 Days of Halloween: Vintage Halloween Cartoons

What is it that I love so much about vintage Halloween cartoons? I love how they are creepy-cute, balancing silliness with scares. I love their nostalgic charm and thinking about how many people have enjoyed them, considering some go back as far as the 1920s!

Most of all, I love the Halloween atmosphere and spirit they all seem to exude. Watching any one of these puts me in the Halloween spirit!

I wish there was a box set of these vintage Halloween cartoons, but for now we can watch most of them on YouTube.

Check out a few of my favorites below:


  1. I love these too! They exude a charm and atmosphere that current cartoons can't seem to re-capture.

  2. I had completely forgotten the Donald Duck one! You reminded me of it, thanks! :) This post is great!

  3. That Silly Symphony brings back such memories! When I was a kid we had it on some dubbed VHS tape with some other cartoons. Man, I loved it!
