  • Skeleton Dance

    1929. USA. Directed by Walt Disney. Animated by Ub Iwerks. In his 1937 essay "Surrealism in Hollywood," Dalí notes, "One believes to have dreamed those dazzling cataclysmic rainbows which are the Silly Symphonies of Disney." 6 min.

  • Fantasia

    1940. USA. Produced by Walt Disney. These eight animated sequences are set to a classical concert conducted by Leopold Stokoswki. The Toccata and Fugue segment is particularly Surrealist, with its allusions to the nightmare state and spectral beings. Disney was keen to introduce Surrealist iconography into his films, and even fleetingly included a Dalí-like eye in the "parade of the pink elephants" sequence in Dumbo (1941).
