Animated horror from the 60's and 70's

I grew up in the 70's and remember watching films like "Mad Monster Party" on TV. I'm trying to come up with a list of animated films from the 60's and 70's that had a horror theme. These could even be just short 1/2 hour specials as well. They just need to be animated as cartoon or stop motion. I am hoping to possibly track some of them down for next Halloween. Can anyone suggest some titles? Even the most obscure suggestions are welcome.

One that comes to mind is Witches Night Out which was a 1/2 hour animated special from around 1977 or 8. Gilda Radner did one of the voices.

It's from 1985 so it doesn't quite fit, but the the Cuban VAMPIRES IN HAVANA is certainly worth a look if you're into animated horror. Feature length and R rated:

There's Mad, Mad, Mad Monsters (1972) which is only $4.99 right now on Amazon. I hear it's pretty bad but as an extra they included Jack o' Lantern (1972) which is apparently quite good.

The Legend of Sleepy Hollow (1949) is a lot earlier but a perennial from Disney aired throughout TV history and I showed it at my last Halloween party where it went over very well.

Also The Milton the Monster Show. And, of course, Scooby Doo.

And what about The Halloween Tree? I've never seen it, but isn't that supposed to be animated?

Milton the Monster, that's a good one.



Thought of some other cartoon series. Now granted that these are probably not what the the OP was thinking of but I figure I post them for fun.

The Real Ghostbusters (1986)

Godzilla Power Hour (1978)

A big stretch but .... the Beetlejuice cartoons.


And the awesome Dungeons and Dragons (1983)
