Rankin/Bass's Halloween (Trick-or-) Treat, 7 May 2002
Author: Joseph Brando from NJ, USA

Another super retro puppet-animated feature from Rankin/Bass. This full-length feature film is one of only two specials done by R/B with a Halloween theme - the other being "Mad Mad Mad Monsters" (which is a shorter version of this same story done in inferior cel animation).

When Dr. Baron Von Frankenstein decides to retire from his long career as the head of the monster society, he invites all of his creations - Frankenstein, The Mummy, Count Dracula, The Invisible Man, The Wolf Man and many others - for one final bash before handing down his position to his successor which each of the monsters assume will be themselves. When the true successor is revealed as the Baron's long-lost nephew, a nerdy boy named Felix Flankin, all hell breaks loose and poor Felix is in big trouble!!

The characters are really top-notch thanks to a winning combination of exquisitely designed stop-motion puppets and and excellent voices provided by some big-name stars. Boris Karlof adds his eerie sound as the Baron, Phyllis Diller is an ingenious choice as the Monster's Mate, and Gale Garnett takes the cake as the most memorable character, Francesca, a curvy, buxom, husky-voiced sexy red-head with a mind just as sinister as the ghastliest of the monsters.

Featuring a fantastic jazzy, spy-groovy soundtrack and creepy set designs, this campy film creates a genuine 60's Halloween feeling. The jokes that adults will find humorous will fly right over children's heads, which will be too mesmerized by all the cool monsters to notice much else.
