Emma Peel

Emma Peel from The Avengers. This is actually a test post. I'm trying out the pre-posting feature on blogger. I figure it will come in handy next month when the Halloween Countdown begins.

Mad Monster Party Special Edition DVD Out Today!

Most people are familiar with Rankin/Bass and all of their wonderful animated Holiday Specials. I grew up watching Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer every year at Christmas. And I still watch it every year along with Frosty the Snowman, A Year Without Santa Claus, Santa Claus is Coming to Town, and more. But it wasn't until my early twenties that I happened upon the Rankin/Bass feature film, Mad Monster Party. A stop motion animated film featuring classic monster characters, great music and the voices of Boris Karloff & Phyllis Diller, count me in! I recorded MMP off of late night TV (TNT, back when they had MONSTERVISION), and that was my only copy until Anchor Bay released a beautiful, remastered version to DVD in 2003. It was re-released to DVD in 2005 and now it has been released at third time. This time they have included some documentary features. So I will be picking this one up when it is convenient for me.
Now, I decided to mark the occasion with a little drawing. Francesca & Yetch. Yetch loves Francesca.
This drawing was conceived to the Mad Monster Party soundtrack from Percepto records. Really great fun music.
