The problem is the "background:black" part of the style. The color animation doesn't support color names.

I'm not sure that's it. jQuery UI Effects core has support for color names. Perhaps try background-color instead of background? A test page would help assess.

I created a testcase. I also changed the css property to background-color. No success..

Made a fiddle of the testcase: I was unable to reproduce any script errors in IE8 - Is this still a problem?
