Well, I'm glad it does, cause I have a few nits to pick with the writers! I mean, Zoe is a "zombie", but can see and walk through things? Where does that come from?
I actually looked up a promo yesterday, and when the Frankenstein Monster dabbed I figured I'd seen all I needed to see. :D

Yeah, I was definitely not a Disney kid growing up. In fact, as far as I know I'd never seen Trick or Treat until I found it for the first version of this thread. But as an adult I've come to realize that they were really firing on all cylinders during the 30s/40s. That's hardly news to anybody, it's just that I hadn't been paying attention for most of my life. In terms of artwork and animation their shorts from that era look every bit as great as their features.
As a matter of personal preference I'll always favor the Warner Bros humor and the Fleischers' weirdness, but it's not hard to see why Disney was #1.

EDIT: What I should've said is that, with the exception of my Lonesome Ghosts viewer, I hadn't seen any of these Disney shorts until recently. I saw all the movies like every American kid, but the shorts were something I didn't watch often. And I'm not even sure I had access to them, come to think of it.
I too was a Warner Bros. kid. I came to Disney later.

The Flying Sorceress (1956)

A brief word about Tom & Jerry:

So it seems that this short is the only time that Tom & Jerry joined the Halloween fun, at least during their vintage years. There's two other shorts that are borderline horror-related:

But aside from the somewhat-spooky title cards, these aren't very spooky. They're set in the same suburban-looking house as all their other shorts. In "Dr Jekyll", Jerry does not turn into a monster but rather just gets really muscle-y when he drinks the potion. I feel like I should mention them for the sake of completeness, but honestly they don't really scratch the Halloween itch for me so they don't make the cut here.

Halloween Is Grinch Night (1977)
https://youtu.be/ygSEkwRCQPM

comments and a hot tip:
Is this as good as How the Grinch Stole Christmas? Of course not. Neither Chuck Jones nor Boris Karloff are involved for one thing (Boris had passed away, of course), but the good news is it was written and produced by Dr Suess. This one is less gothic/spooky and more Suessian/surreal.

And for the physical media die-hards out there: Last year my prayers were answered when the "Ultimate Edition Blu Ray" of HTGSC was released with the Halloween special included as a bonus.

Now this is one of my all-timers. I used to put it in my Horrorthon. It is so fucked-up. As you say, "Suessian/surreal".

This is one of my favorites. Daffy tries to spend the winter in a mad scientist's home, who happens to need a wishbone for an experiment...

Not overtly horror-related, but a nice mood-setter nevertheless. Remember when I said Disney was crushing it in the 30s? Holy moly this is beautiful. This won the Best Short Subject Oscar in 1938.

Want more Honey Halfwitch?
So yesterday I learned that there was a character in the 1960s named Honey Halfwitch, who was the star of 12 cartoons. They're mostly excruciating, if I'm being honest, but in the event that anyone else is into this, here's a handy reference to look up more of her toons:
https://www.bcdb.com/cartoons/Paramount ... Halfwitch/
She's got a sidekick named Fraidy Bat who talks like Lugosi, so that's kind of fun...
