The Husband picked this one up because it was a Rankin/Bass production and we like their Christmas shows. This Halloween effort was so bad we didn't finish it. It was slow. Painfully slow. If it was supposed to be funny or cute we missed that part. It was just tedious. And the music was cheesy. Apparently Mad Monster Party has quite the cult following and is loved by people everywhere. I wonder what we missed. The endearing qualities must come after the first 40 minutes. That's about when we gave up and watched one of the old Poirot Mystery episodes I have on DVD.
