Inspiration for nightmare before Christmas
18 September 2006 | by vampi1960See all my reviews

When i was a kid i remember them showing this every Halloween on wnew TV channel 5.i thought it was cool to see all the monsters together in one movie,it was made by Rankin bass,the same people who gave us Rudolph the red nosed reindeer(68)and doing the voice for baron Von Frankenstein was none other then the great Boris Karloff.who was also great at doing voice overs for kids movies like the Grinch that stole Christmas and the daydreamer a movie about Hans Christian Anderson.anyway Dr Frankenstein has a bog retirement party to name his successor to take his place as leader of the monsters.he has one nephew who is a mere...,human who he invites to the shindig.the monsters aren't very thrilled about that.heres the lineup; Frankensteins monster,his mate(voiced by Phyllis diller)Dracula,the werewolf,the mummy,the creature,the hunchback,Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde,invisible man,and it (a king Kong lookalike)its a wild monster party with a singing group of skeletons modeled after the Beatles,well remember this is 1968.its a marvel of animation done way before any computer graphics were even thought of.this has always been an ageless personal favorite.even Tim Burton was inspired by mad monster party when he did nightmare before Christmas.10 out of 10 check it out,its a good Halloween party movie.
