Trivia

The producers of this movie did not want to pay for the use of the names "King Kong", "Frankenstein's Monster", "The Bride of Frankenstein", "Quasimodo" and "The Creature From the Black Lagoon". That is why in this movie the character of King Kong is called "It", Frankenstein's Monster is called "Fang", The Bride of Frankenstein is called "The Monster's Mate", Quasimodo is called "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" and The Creature From the Black Lagoon is called simply "Creature". The names "Count Dracula" and "The Invisible Man" were in the Public Domain at the time the movie was produced. Since no fees were required for their use, they were used in the movie. See more »

CONTAINS SPOILERS

On a small island off the coast of the Caribbean lives the famous Baron Von Frankenstein in his castle filled with maniacal creations. Dr. Frankenstein has concocted a new potion. It has th ability to eliminate all matter. The Baron also had a big announcement to make, so he sent out the invitations. He wished to tell all the members of the World Wide Organization of Monsters, so he invites them to his castle for a big party. A Mad Monster Party. The whole gang is invited: Dracula, Wolfman, Dr. Jekyll, Mr. Hyde, Hunchback of Notre Dame, Mummy, Invisible Man and The Creature. The Baron also invited someone else: his long lost nephew, Felix Flanken, who operated a pharmacy in lower Vermont. Actually, Felix was the underskilled pharmacist who was quite half-witted and very allergic. He get's very excited when he get's his invitation and heads right to the island.

Other residents of Dr. Frankenstein's castle are Fang, the Frankenstein Monster and Phyllis Diller, the Monster's Mate. Also, a pretty lady named Francesca. She becomes envious when the Baron tells her of Felix and that he will name him his successor. Yes, contrary to belief, the Baron was retiring and he wanted to name his only living kin his successor; Dracula, Wolfman, Invisible Man, Mummy, Hunchback and Dr. Jekyll boarded a ship headed for the island. The captain and his mate were in shock. Felix joined them.

Before long, they all made it to the island. Francesca talks Dracula into helping her eliminate Felix. Fang and Phyllis wanted in on it too. When Dr. Frankenstein informed Felix of his future, he wasn't so sure he could do it, but before he could get the chance to tell "Uncle Boris", an enormous creature arrived on the island. It's name: It. It grabbed up all the monsters, but it was Dr. Frankenstein to the rescue. He got out his new matter eliminating formula and blew them all sky high! Luckily, Felix and Francesca, who fell head over heels for one another, escaped.

Now that I've viewed this enough times, it isn't bad! It's quite cute. We've got horror legend Boris Karloff as Dr. Frankenstein. Phyllis Diller as the Monster's Mate. Gale Garnett is Francesca, and Alan Swift voices everyone else. Mad Monster Party is from Rankin/Bass who brought us such memorable specials as Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer and Frosty the Snowman. You know, watching this movie makes you anticipate Christmas so you can watch the above. So in conclusion, if you all like Rankin/Bass and stop-motion films and want a good film to watch at Halloween, check this one out!
