Skeleton Dance(1929) was a short animation created by Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks to practice syncing animation with music tailored to it specifically. While the short was groundbreaking in the world of animation (and even found new life on the internet 87 years later), it was limited by the technology available to Disney and Iwerks. So while Iwerks was under a contract with MGM, Iwerks created a remake of the short called Skeleton Frolic in 1939. Skeleton Dance opens with the credits of Ub Iwerks, the animator, and Carl W. Stalling, the composer. It was recorded using the cinephone system while Skeleton Frolic uses early Technicolor.

Foreign cultures were represented as crude, disrespectful, and inhuman. “The movie Aladdin shows negative stereotypical imagery and lyrics in the movie. In the movie The Lion King, jive talking hyenas were characters that lived in a jungle equivalent of an inner-city ghetto. Finally, the film Pocahontas is Disney’s answer to the previous criticisms on racial/cultural biases” (Gries, Mumy, Allodi). The false images Disney portrays for children will influence the decisions and the actions they execute later in their lives.

The narrator is mysteriously trapped by the lure of Roderick’s attraction, and he cannot escape until the house of Usher collapses completely. Characters cannot move and act freely in the house because of its structure, so it assumes a monstrous character of its own—the Gothic mastermind that controls the fate of its inhabitants. Poe creates confusion between the living things and inanimate objects by doubling the physical house of Usher with the genetic family line of the Usher family, which he refers to as the house of Usher. Poe employs the word “house” metaphorically, but he also describes a real house. As you read on the house's windows take on the form of eyes and the house itself becomes like a monster that is alive.

Killed in an aerial battle, the sign that “came down from the world of grownups” is a dead parachuter.
