Plot Sypnosis:

Baron Von Frankenstein has decided to retire as the head of the Worldwide Organization of Monsters. But first, he must inform the other monsters about his plans. How to deliver the news? How else - through a Mad Monster Party! Von Frankenstein's guests include a who's who of Halloween favorites, including the Werewolf, Dracula, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, the Mummy, the Invisible Man, and more. But who among them is fit to be the new head of the monsters?

Filmed in the revolutionary stop-motion process, "Animagic", this beloved cult classic is presented in an all-new colour-corrected master from the original 35mm vault materials. Full of goofball gags and all kinds of horror movie puns. Mad Monster Party is as silly as it wants to be, and as silly as it should be, and going along with it makes me want to be silly, too.- DVD TALK From the studios of Rankin/Bass (creators of the timeless kid's classics Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer and Frosty the Snowman) comes this frighteningly funny Holiday monster bash! After discovering an anti-matter formula for total world annihilation, Baron Von Frankenstein (voiced by legendary horror icon Boris Karloff) decides it's time to retire from the monster-making business. But first he must invite all the card-carrying members of THE WORLDWIDE ORGANIZATION OF MONSTERS to the Isle of Evil - and inform this group of ghouls who will inherit his horrific legacy. When he announces that his human nephew, the mild-mannered soda jerk Felix, will be his successor, the monsters are mortified - and bumbling goofball Felix soon discovers that the entire guest list - including Count Dracula, the Wolf Man, the Mummy, the Invisible Man, Dr Jekyll & Mr. Hyde, the Monster's Mate (voiced by outlandish comedy queen Phyllis Diller) and more - are all out to eliminate him!By the end of the party, who will be the last monster standing? Written and designed by two of MAD Magazine's iconic 'gang of idiots', editor Harvey Kurtzman and legendary artist Jack Davis - and boasting infectious pop tunes courtesy of a Beatle-mop quartet of skeletons, Little Tibia and the Fibias - MAD MONSTER PARTY is guaranteed to "make everybody chuckle, the tots and their escorts, and even the monsters at heart" - THE NEW YORK TIMES
