Egyptian Melodies is a 1931 Silly Symphonies animated short subject produced by Walt Disney and directed by Wilfred Jackson.


In the film, a spider wanders down into an Egyptian tomb. His entrance is seen as if following the spider and is certainly a notable technique in animation of the period. Once inside the tomb, the mummies begin to dance and the various paintings come to life.
