Feature-length stop-motion animated comedy featuring the voice talents of Boris Karloff, Allen Swift and Gale Garnett. When Dr Frankenstein (Karloff) decides to retire from the monster-making business, he calls an international roster of monsters to a creepy convention to elect his successor. All of the world's most famous monsters attend including Dracula, Wolfman, the Hunchback of Notre Dame, the Mummy, the Invisible Man, the Werewolf, the Creature, Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. But Frankenstein's title is not all that is at stake. The doctor has also discovered the secret of global destruction, which must not fall into the wrong hands...

A fantastic piece of puppetry, classic humour and a novel way of using well known horror characters, Mad Monster Party is a real gas! Although timeless in it's story and setting, it is definately swinging 60's all the way. A fabulous way to introduce the kids to a genre and time that they don't get to experience in todays TV. Voiced by some well known actors from the 60's it is clear to see how it influenced Tim Burton's work. If you like his films, this one is for you to see how it all began.
Featuring the voices of Boris Karloff, Allen Swift, Phyllis Diller and Gale Garnett, "Mad Monster Party" is for the most part an entertaining film with great animation, superb sets, references to other classic movies and a few catchy songs chucked in for good measure. The only thing that lets the film down at times is the script. The action becomes a bit too silly in places and some of the jokes are rather corny (but not as corny as my jokes).
However, the film's greatest asset is the wonderful animated characters. I particularly liked the character Yetch who is clearly modelled on one of my favourite actors, Peter Lorre, and the Dr. Frankenstein character (voiced by Boris Karloff) physically resembles Boris himself and I must say that Francesca (voiced by Gale Garnett) is quite possibly the most attractive piece of modelling clay I have ever seen! A special mention must also be given to Allen Swift who provides the voices for lots of different characters in this film. You really cannot tell that it is the same actor doing all these voices.
This DVD version unfortunately does not contain any extras (apart from scene selection) but for anyone in their forties or older who has fond memories of watching this when they were a kid then this DVD is definitely worth buying.
