This from www.RankinBass.com:
More exciting news concerning the Summer 2002 Anchor Bay release of the Rankin/Bass Halloween classic motion picture MAD MONSTER PARTY! We have been informed that the rights to the once-scrapped documentary on Mad Monster Party produced by Dave Whitting have been purchased by Anchor Bay to be included in the DVD extra features! Previously presented on our site in a crude slideshow format, it was once feared that Animagic fans would never see this documentary as it was meant to be seen. Featuring interviews with voice talent Phyllis Diller, animation producer Dave Whitting, our own Rankin/Bass historian Rick Goldschmidt, and hosted by the modern master of cartoon voices, Billy West, this informative presentation will soon be enjoyed by all! Mad Monster Party seems to recently be rising above its cult status, and along with an 18 page booklet written by Rick and a remastered print, this DVD is sure to be a great seller and a fantastic addition for any animation or Rankin/Bass DVD collector! We'll keep you updated on any future info on the project!
I understand it is scheduled to be released in early July.

Yes, this is a MUST buy disc. One of my favorite flicks from my childhood. Even my kids dig the VHS version.

Bad news. I've just read on the Official Rankin/Bass Website that the documentary will not be included on the DVD. Apparently the elements didn't arrive in time and instead of delaying the disc Anchor Bay decided not to include it. Thanks Anchor Bay:frowning:

Oooh, you guys know Anchor Bay. Soon they´ll be re-releasing MMP in a double-disc Divimaxed set on a metal round box with holographic tinfoil. :D
