comment is there a modulation in boogie-woogie?
I don't think so, because you don't get the sense that you want to rest on F or G. Using an arrow -> to indicate that a chord "pushes" toward another one and a comma to indicate a restful chord, the blues is heard as C, F -> C, G -> C or C, F -> C, F -> G -> C. Tonicization would be C, D7 -> G, G7 -> C. Modulation: C -> F -> G7 -> C, F -> G7 -> C, G -> A7 -> D. (That's a "truck driver's gear change"; see www.gearchange.org.)

comment Is there any real-world difference between time signatures such as 4/4 and 8/8?
In the 1940's, piano Boogie-Woogie was also called "8 To The Bar", because the pulse was eight very rapid beats, not 4 or 2. All of the beats but the first were equal in force.

comment Are “The Carnival of the Animals” and “Danse Macabre” the same piece?
I wouldn't say "copied largely". It quotes the theme of Dance Macabre in a humorous way, and also several other tunes including "Au Clair de la Lune" and "Ah Vous d'Irai-je Maman" (the tune we English-speakers know as "The ABC Song").
