Saturday Morning Horror - 1966
1966 was a good year to be a monster kid. Classic monster movies, like Frankenstein and Dracula, were popular again due to their being shown to a new generation of fans on TV. Monster themed toys, like Marx Toys' Cinema Creatures, and Aurora Monster Model Kits, were on the toy shelves. Television had the premieres of Dark Shadows, It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown, Star Trek and Batman. Other shows that aired in 1966 included Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, Lost in Space, My Favorite Martian, The Munsters, and The Addams Family.
Even the Saturday Morning Cartoons were not immune to monster-mania. I'm going to count down the top 6 spooky, scary, or monster-filled cartoons that were available to kids on 1966 Saturday mornings, starting with the least scary, and working my way up to the most horrifying!
