Alternate Versions

In recent video releases, a few seconds of footage has been edited. In the scene at the pharmacy when the postman shows Felix a real fancy stamp on his letter, the new edited version edits the shot of Felix looking over the letter for the stamp and the postman pointing to it. So right after the postman calls the stamp "Fancy", it cuts right to a close-up of the Baron von Frankenstein stamp. See more »

Mad Monster Fun (at Halloween or anytime)!
24 September 1999 | by BobLibSee all my reviews

What a shame that Rankin/Bass, the people who produced some of the most beloved Christmas specials ever ("Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer," etc.) only did two theatrical films, this and "The Daydreamer" a year earlier. "Mad Monster Party" is, like those specials, fun for all ages. Boris Karloff brings his inimitable prescense to the voice of Baron Frankenstein. With this film and Bogdonovich's "Targets" the next year, this old master of the horror film couldn't have asked for a better send-off. And then there's Phyllis Diller, bringing her particular brand of wackiness (And a surprisingly good singing voice!) to the role of "The Monster's Mate." The clay animation throughout is up to Rankin/Bass's usual excellent standard and the result is enjoyable, campy fun, at Halloween or anytime.
