Help me identify these old cartoons

I'm trying to identify two clips shown in the Disney video DTV Pop and Rock (from 1984 I think). The first one is a '50s style cartoon shown during the segment for "At the Hop" by Danny and the Juniors. The clip shows a bunch of kids in a hot rod and at a malt shop. The second clip is a black and white cartoon that has dancing skeletons. This is shown in the first video, "Dancing in the Streets" by Martha and the Vandellas. I couldn't find any information on the movie at IMDB and very little on Wikipedia. Thanks for any help.

I'll bet the second clip was from 1929's The Skeleton Dance.

It was the Skeleton Dance. Thank you. One more to go.

They cut up more than one Disney cartoon per music video, for one thing. But if you are looking for just specific clips from these two videos, would you mind explaining what you mean by "'50s style cartoon"?

(Props, I loved DTV. Got me into the Stray Cats!)

Oh, I get it, you meant the content, not really the style. My confusion, sorry.

The other is All The Cats Join In.

Holy shit, I used to have those on tape! I loved them when I was a kid. Any clue on where I can get the music videos online nowadays?

Maybe on youtube, but you can get the tapes from Amazon (used about $7 I think) if all else fails.
