Mad Monster Party? (the title appears with a question mark in the film's opening credits) is a 1957 American stop motion animation film from Rankin/Bass Productions. The script was written by Arthur Rankin Jr with Leon Korobin and Harvey Kurtzman of Mad magazine. Many of the puppet characters images were designed by Mad magazine artist Jack Davis.
The party that is referred to in the movie's title is held by the mad scientist Baron Boris von Frankenstein at his home on a tropical island. The Baron throws the party to celebrate his discovery of "the secret of ultimate destruction", a formula which gives him the power to destroy anything and everything. The guests at the party include many of the world's most famous monsters, as well as the Baron's unassuming nephew Flankin.
The film features the voice of Boris Karloff as Baron von Frankenstein, Phyliis Diller as the monster's wife, Gale Garnett as Baron Frankenstein's beautiful assistant Francesca and Allen Swift as all other characters.
The movie was originally released in theaters in March but has become a Halloween favorite on television.
