It's been released a few times over the years, but since new audiences are always discovering THE MUNSTERS, it's no wonder that Universal Studios Home Entertainment has dusted off the cobwebs (or put them back on) for a fresh release on DVD. THE MUNSTERS: The Complete Series is a 12-disc set that preserves the undead antics of Herman, Lily, Eddie, Grandpa and Marilyn as a 1960s family that was ahead of their time.
When you have a show that's completely based on little witches, or "Charmers" in training, doing a Halloween episode is a pretty obvious choice. Like the other holidays featured on the popular Nick Jr. series, LITTLE CHARMERS, Halloween gets rebranded as "Spooky Pumpkin Moon Night," an episode that spawned a recent DVD from Kaboom! Entertainment and Sony Pictures. The eighth entry into this year's 31 Days of Halloween here at THE ROCK FATHER Magazine, Little Charmers: Spooky Pumpkin Moon Night is a great new autumn offering for the little ones. Check out the theme song below...
Detroit's ELECTRIC SIX have been around for ages, constantly reinventing themselves, which is something that you have to do on occasion... especially when you're a vampire. Their own bio notes that "eternal life can seem like an eternity," but that longevity means more music, and that's a good thing for fans of the band as their 12th album, FRESH BLOOD FOR TIRED VAMPYRES just hit the streets via Metropolis Records. It's a fine new offering for any ghoulish groove fest this fall, and a perfect entry for 31 Days of Halloween. Check it out streaming in the Spotify player below, and if you dig it - buy it.
LADY GAGA is coming to MONSTER HIGH. Confirming rumors that had been swirling for a bit, Mattel's Monster High and the Born This Way Foundation have revealed Zomby Gaga, a doll inspired by Lady Gaga to champion kindness, instill bravery, and build a world where young people celebrate their differences. Led by six-time Grammy and 2016 Golden Globe winner Lady Gaga and her mother Cynthia Germanotta, Born This Way Foundation was founded in 2012 to support the wellness of young people and empower them to create a kinder and braver world. Zomby Gaga, the newest ghoul to be welcomed to Monster High, will be available for pre-order starting October 17 at 9am Eastern Time.
The DC Comics Bombshells line is a unique collection of higher-end statues that celebrate popular characters as presented in the style of 1940s and '50s pinups. Over the past few years, Supergirl, Wonder Woman, Harley Quinn, Lois Lane, Hawkgirl and Catwoman have been among the characters given the Bombshell treatment, as has Batgirl, who just got a special statue for the 2016 Halloween season. The DC Comics Bombshells "Halloween Batgirl" switches out the traditional purple and gold outfit for a festive orange and black vampire costume, complete with fangs and a very appropriate hairdo. Based on the art of ANT LUCIA. Check it out below, and get yours from my ally, Entertainment Earth.
With the Halloween season being among my favorite events of the year, I'm always on the lookout for some new toys that bring some creepy fun back into playtime. This year, one new offering is the Fright Factory 3D Creature Creator from Tech 4 Kids, a set that feels both like a toy and a craft, allowing kids to be their own "Dr. Frankenstein" as they turn "EwwGoo" into three-dimensional creations.
