Hell's Bells is a Silly Symphonies animated Disney short film. Drawn by a team headed by animator Ub Iwerks, it was released in 1929. It is loosely based on Inferno by Dante Alighieri, which tells part of Divine Comedy. Among the music featured in the film is "In the Hall of the Mountain King" and Funeral March of a Marionette.
Satan and the demons gather for a wild party. After the demons play music, Satan has them "milk" burning flames out of a dragon cow and he drinks it. He then feeds one of his little demons to his three-headed hound Cerberus. The other one runs away and eventually kicks Satan off a cliff where he is consumed by flames.
