Groovie Goolies!

To follow our previous post about the Rankin & Bass Halloween specials, "Mad Monster Party" & "Mad Mad Mad Monsters", I thought I would also promote this "Groovie Goolies" DVD, released earlier this summer. "Groovie Goolies" was a Saturday morning (mourning) cartoon in the 70's produced by Filmation, and a spin off of the popular series, "The Archie Show".

Similar to the Rankin & Bass specials, this show primarily featured classic monsters, such as Dracula, Frankenstein's Monster & The Wolfman. They all hang out together in Horrible Hall, getting into wacky scrapes and banging out sugary hits as a band, all with a comedy style resembling Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In. It's a fun, wholesome series to add to your Halloween viewing. It will be nostalgic for adults who grew up watching it, but I'm sure the kids will get a kick out of it as well. If you've never seen the show, check out the intro!
