Storyline

ABBOTT AND COSTELLO MEET THE MONSTERS, a new computer-animated reworking of ABBOTT AND COSTELLO MEET FRANKENSTEIN, a project that has entered the test stage at eColor Studio. Combining the zany humor of the 1940s Abbott and Costello classics with the "monster rallies" of the same period, the project attempts to bring humor and comedy together in refreshing ways. MEET THE MONSTERS is beginning life as a two-minute test film, utilizing a key scene in the middle of the story in which Chick and Wilbur riff on the names of the monster characters before encountering Frankenstein's Monster face-to-face.

Sort of like ABBOTT AND COSTELLO MEET FRANKENSTEIN and their "Who's on First" bit rolled into one.
26 January 2009 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This film will impact you differently depending on if you are familiar with or like Abbott and Costello. Given that many younger people DON'T know who they were, the film has rather limited appeal.

The short is like ABBOTT AND COSTELLO MEET FRANKENSTEIN and their old familiar "Who's on First" routine rolled into one. As far as the voice impressions go, they aren't bad at all--particularly the guy who imitated Costello (Lou Sciara). The animation is okay, but far from professional quality--sort of like something that was made with flash or some other simple program. It's a shame really, as I would actually love to see a live action version of what this skit was about--provided Sciara and Palmer ("Abbott") can approximate the duo in a live film.

I'd like to see more--but in the meantime, keep working on those animation skills--a little smoother and more well-crafted will definitely draw in more fans of classic comedy (you know, old farts like me).
