Hip Swinging Skeleton is an animated Halloween decoration made in 1998. He wears a gray tuxedo with a black vest and a black top hat with a red stripe. He swings his hips back and forth and moves his arms up and down while singing "Puttin' on the Ritz".
- There is a sitting version of this item that holds a cane.
- There is a dancing hamster called Dapper Dan with the same recording as this item, but the recording of the song is sped up and the voice is slightly different.
- The later models of this item have a different hip swinging mechanism, and the music is sped up and slightly extented at the end compared to the frist ones, as shown here.
