Do you want to watch a skeletal puppet duo perform "Oye Como Va?" I thought so. How about a lone skeleton puppet doing "Let's Twist Again?" But if rock isn't your bag, there's always the Walt Disney classic Silly Symphony: "The Skeleton Dance."

Do you know where the first one was filmed? I'm thinking I saw this or a similar skeleton-puppet performance in Buenos Aires about 8 years ago (and the reference to Calle Florida in the YouTube notes corroborates that). Anyway, even if my memory is playing tricks on me, it's a lot of fun; thanks!

I assumed Buenos Aires for the same reason, JimInLoganSquare.

And the granddaddy of them all: Danse Macabre by Camille Saint-Saens. (Version selected by number of skeletons.)

I know there may be only 2 or 3 of us who want to see this (or maybe only me), but here's a clip that includes the dancing skeletons featured on the "Sir Graves Ghastly" show many of us Detroit-area Michiganders grew up watching.

If puppets aren't a prerequisite, I'll toss in Dead Man's Bones.
