Love it or hate it this cult classic stop-motion from Rankin/Bass will be hitting store shelf's on Blu-Ray just in time for Halloween.
From the Press Release

What better way to get in the Halloween sprit than by celebrating with a monster party? Lionsgate Home Entertainment makes Mad Monster Party available for the first time in high definition with the release of the Blu-ray Combo Pack (Blu-ray + DVD) as well as HD Digital Download and On Demand arriving just in time for the spookiest holiday of the year and the theatrical release of the similarly themed Hotel Transylvania. From the team who created the stop-motion and animated holiday classics "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer" and "Frosty the Snowman," Mad Monster Party stars the voice talents of Boris Karloff (Frankenstein) and Phyllis Diller (Eight on the Lam). The Blu-ray Combo Pack bonus materials include a "making of" featurette plus two featurettes that look at the animation and the music of the film as well as two bonus sing-along tracks. The Mad Monster Party Blu-ray Combo Pack arrives on September 4th for the suggested retail price of $14.99.

Baron Von Frankenstein (voice of Boris Karloff) has decided to retire as the head of the Worldwide Organization of Monsters. But first, he must inform the other monsters about his plans. How to deliver the news? How else - through a Mad Monster Party! Von Frankenstein's guests include a who's who of Halloween favorites, including the Werewolf, Dracula, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, the Mummy, the Invisible Man and more. But who among them is fit to be the new head of the monsters?

I better start saving my money now. This fall is shaping up to be a fantastic time to purchase Halloween themed DVDs and Blu-Ray. I think it would have been great to add in the sound track as a free download instead of On Demand option. Never the less your all invited to a Mad Monster Party.
