What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this silly 1960's Rankin/Bass animation movie has the occasional round of cartoon violence, plus lots of spooky imagery (skulls, ghouls, etc.). Monsters at a party hold full wine glasses and a character makes a subtle reference to hangovers. There's some sultry female characters, plus moments of quasi-romantic kissing -- but on the whole, Mad Monster Party is kitschy, campy fun for adults and kids alike.
- Families can talk about live animation. How were these characters brought to life, and how is it different from animation seen in other cartoons and movies?
- How can you tell this movie was made several decades ago? Is it the animation? The jokes? The characters?
