As the story unfolds, we meet the three main monsters: Frank, the monster from Frankenstein; Drac, the vampire, and Wolf, the werewolf. They were once the scariest of monsters, but now they have become associated with "fun." That's why they have been called before the Court of Horrors. They must prove that they can still be scary, and if they fail they will be sentenced to an eternity of entertaining at children's parties. They are given 24 hours to terrify the Tinklemeister family, but what should be a no-brainer turns out to be a nightmare. Mom and Dad Tinklemeister are easy to scare, but Stella and Spike, the Tinklemeister children, are another story altogether. The monster trio becomes frustrated and finally lets the family in on their dilemma. The Tinklemeisters understand and help them try to gain back their scary status. Just when it looks like the threesome will win their case, three new modern monsters show up to foil their plan. It's Stella and Spike to the rescue. Written by

This is an awesome kid-friendly tribute to the classic monsters and a look at how they hold up against the monsters of modern-day. I liked this one upon first viewing. Some films need to grow on a person and others are enjoyed the first go-round. "Monster Mash" is the latter. I can promise you that.
The story is very well written. The voice cast is phenomenal. Unfortunately, the quality of animation is a little low (If you've seen TV's "Sonic Underground" -also from DiC- this is more of the same) but that is the only blemish I could see. I'm not going to spoil the plot for anybody other than we see Frank, Drac, and Wolf (you know what their full names are) attempt to scare a typical family (with hilarious results). But, I will say this is an awesome Halloween party flick for the kids and adults will enjoy this as an alternative to the gory slashers that are all special effects and no performance.
I give "Monster Mash" 9 out of 10 stars. The one negative star is for the afore-mentioned low quality animation (We've all seen better come from DiC). This title might be difficult to obtain outside the Halloween season but, if you could locate a copy, get it! I just wish the DVD would have a "Scene Selection" but that's just personal preference.
