Mad Monster Party was a Halloween-themed stop-motion animation from the masters who brought you all of those great Christmas specials like Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and Santa Claus is Coming to Town. And it’s on the Halloween movie list every year for my boys and me. With a heavy influence from MAD magazine — it was co-written by Harvey Kurtzman and the characters were designed by Jack Davis — it’s a real treat. And with voices by Boris Karloff and Phyllis Diller, it’s absolutely irresistible. In a notable change from the Victorian-era women in the Christmas specials, the female lead, Francesca, is a curvy, buxom, husky-voiced sexy red-head with a mind just as sinister as the ghastliest of the monsters.

We all thought Zootopia was a perfectly entertaining movie, but we have one major disagreement. Alex thought the movie went too far in trying to preach to its audience. According to Max, maybe they could have gone further. Support us on Patreon — the money will be given to the boys to encourage their creative efforts.
