The zombies were having fun

The party had just begun

The guests included Wolf Man

Dracula and his son

The scene was rockin', all were digging the sounds

Igor on chains, backed by his baying hounds

The coffin-bangers were about to arrive

With their vocal group, the Crypt-Kicker Five
Bobby "Boris" Pickett and the Crypt-Kickers, "The Monster Mash"

Any work with has the Universal Monsters (DraculaFrankenstein's MonsterThe Wolf ManThe Mummy, the Creature from the Black LagoonThe Invisible Man and The Phantom of the Opera) together.

Despite this being nominally one of Universal's franchises, non-Universal Monster Mashes are more common that Universal ones, which often means Writing Around Trademarks when dealing with the Mummy, the Wolf Man and the Gill Man (since Universal owns them, unlike the other four, who are Public Domain Characters)

Not to be confused with the PC game Monster Bash, nor the coin-op of the same name, although both are very much examples of this.
