I don't know about greenscreen but I do think that there was a fair bit of work done in post... I say that because I would imagine that drawing each frame would leave a lot more chalk residue on the background than I could see in the video. I could be wrong though, just my guess.

First time I saw this I was on a holiday and the TV at our accommodation had a loose connection and was in black and white when we watched it. I actually think it looks pretty good without any colour.

It takes stop motion and CEL animation and combines them together.

I don't think it was done on a SLR, It had to be film or video cameras since the end was him in non-stop-motion walking away from the set.
