->''"The zombies were having fun\\
The party had just begun\\
The guests included Wolf Man\\

Hey, wouldn't it be cool if {{Dracula}}, the WolfMan, the {{Mummy}}, FrankensteinsMonster, [[FishPeople Gillman]], and all those other classic monsters hung out?

Short version: Yes. [[RuleOfCool Yes it would.]]

This is prevalent in a setting where the heroes live on WorldOfWeirdness as part of a FantasyKitchenSink with a sprawling CrossoverCosmology, especially if they themselves are supernatural. The creatures, rather than become shut-ins, never leaving their designated niche or dark corner of the world... ''socialize''. The Vampires and Werewolves, though [[FurAgainstFang antagonistic]], agree to hold up a mutual {{Masquerade}} against humans. [[TheFairFolk Fairies]] and ghosts work together to scare local homeowners. And the wizards work with all of them to SaveBothWorlds.

On a personal level, individuals of these groups might [[RagtagBunchOfMisfits form loose bands]] (of {{Player Character}}s, usually) that work towards common goals, hang out, or terrorize humans for fun and profit. Or, if the setting permits, are all in on a secret, ancient conspiracy to control, manipulate, or convert humanity, eventually taking over and enslaving us all! [[EvilLaugh Bla-hahahaha!]]

Not to be confused with the PC game, coin-op game, or [[Pinball/MonsterBash pinball table]] called ''MonsterBash'', although all are very much examples of this.

* The UsefulNotes/GeneralMills "Monster Cereals" - ''Count Chocula'', ''Frankenberry'', ''Boo Berry'', and the lesser known ''Fruit Brute'' and ''Yummy Fruity Mummy''.
* Promotional material for the DisneyThemeParks during the Halloween season often features MickeyMouse and his associates as classic monsters. Mickey as a vampire, Minnie as a witch, DonaldDuck as a Wolf Duck or devil, and {{Goofy}} as a Frankenstein monster seem to be the most common.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Anime and Manga]]
* ''MagicalPokaan'' has a vampire, a werewolf, a witch and a RobotGirl as flatmates. And they're {{Cute Monster Girl}}s, to boot.
** They also have caretaker of sorts - an invisible ghost named Cammy. In one of the special episodes, she appears as a nurse wrapped in bandages, so possibly invoking The Mummy or The Invisible Man.
* ''RosarioToVampire'' has a vampire, two witches, an ice woman, and a succubus as part of the UnwantedHarem and a werewolf as their sempai, with just about every other monster you can think of as antagonists. There's even a ShoutOut to a famous monster ''hunter'': at one point UnluckyEverydude Tsukune is given a whip that apparently was owned by [[Franchise/{{Castlevania}} Simon Belmont himself]].
* ''MahouSenseiNegima'' has a vampire, a CuteGhostGirl, a RobotGirl, and a half-bird demon in Negi's class, as well as a half-dog demon as his closest male friend.
** As of Chapter 294 you can add another half-demon and a demon.
* The Thriller Bark of ''OnePiece'' has a mansion filled with Zombies that do double duty as [[FrankensteinsMonster Frankenstein's Monsters]], an {{invisible}} {{Mix and Match Critter|s}}, a CuteGhostGirl who controls ghosts instead of being one, a MadScientist, and their leader, who bears a striking resemblance to a {{Vampire}}, has a special ability that renders its targets unable to touch sunlight without burning up.
** The Punk Hazard arc adds a new roster of monsters: Centaurs, satyrs, dragons, a harpy and a BlobMonster.
* ''PrincessResurrection'' has vampires, werewolves, robot girls and a demonic princess as the main cast. Most of the above are living in the same house.
* With a name like ''MonsterSoul'', one would say it's about oh um...monsters? =P
* ''Manga/{{Legendz}}'' is a {{Mons}} series where all the creatures are based on monsters of folklore, myth, and urban legend.
* {{Cowa}} by AkiraToriyama is set in a world where humans, monsters and PettingZooPeople coexist. The main characters are a half vampire/half koala-man hybrid, a shapeshifting ghost, another creature that resembles Gillman and a human sumo wrestler.
* in ''{{Hellsing}}'', Millennium -- the bad guys -- are a Nazi vampire army whose leadership includes a cyborg, a MadScientist, a werewolf, a catboy with quantum-related powers, and a MasterOfIllusion. Dracula is there too, but he's ''[[SociopathicHero the good guy]]''.
* ''Magetsukan Kitan''
* ''Manga/HellsAngels'' and its AnimatedAdaptation ''Hells'' are set, surprise surprise, in Hell, where the recently deceased (?) main character attends an AllGhoulsSchool. Among her classmates there are a vampire, a four-armed mummy, a gillwoman, a witch and a female Phantom of the Opera based upon ''Film/PhantomOfTheParadise''.

[[folder:Card Games]]
* While ''MagicTheGathering'' has always had its share of vampires, ghosts, zombies, and other things that go bump in the night, the ''Innistrad'' block takes place on a plane directly inspired by GothicHorror.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comicbooks]]
* In a parody one-shot story ''Illegal Aliens'' (not related by anyway to the [[Literature/IllegalAliens book by the same name]]), a group of underemployed monsters from classic Universal Studios’ films forms an alliance to wipe out new amazingly popular [[Franchise/AlienVsPredator alien creatures]], because [[PunBasedTitle they took away their jobs]] in the movie industry. The comic ends with [[spoiler:all monsters being smashed by... Godzilla.]]
* ''MarvelZombies 4'' revolves around ComicBook/{{Morbius}} [[OurVampiresAreDifferent the Living Vampire]], [[ComicBook/WerewolfByNight Werewolf]] [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent by Night]], [[DarkMagicalGirl Jennifer Kale]], [[TheAntiChrist Daimon Hellstrom]], ComicBook/ManThing, [[OurDemonsAreDifferent Dormammu]], and eventually [[PowersViaPossession The Hood]] teaming up to fight against [[FishPeople Pirahna]], [[EverythingsDeaderWithZombies The Zombie]], and [[NinjaPirateRobotZombie Deadpool's]] [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass severed]] [[HandicappedBadass head]], which, by the way, is the most dangerous entity in the series. Yes, a severed head racks up one of the largest bodycounts in a ZombieApocalypse.
* The eponymous rock band in the DCU comic ''ComicBook/ScareTactics'' had a vampire lead singer, a werewolf on lead guitar, a snake-boy on bass guitar, and a walking pile of sludge for a drummer.
* DC also had several groups under the name ''The Creature Commandos'': the first group (an extreme experiment in psychological warfare during World War II) was made up of Lt. Matthew Shrieve (normal), Warren Griffith (Werewolf), Sgt. Vincent Velcro (Vampire), Pvt. Elliot "Lucky" Taylor (Frankenstein's monster) and Dr. Myrra Rhodes (Medusa). They often teamed up with fellow ''Weird War Tales'' headliner GI Robot. Of some note is the fact that though Shrieve was "normal", he was quite explicitly [[HumansAreTheRealMonsters the worst of the bunch]]. A reboot in 2000 also featured a gillman, and a new crew introduced in 2003 and never seen again finally added a mummy.
** In the ''Comicbook/{{Flashpoint}}'' timeline, the equivalent group is headed by the [[SevenSoldiers Frankenstein monster]] himself, with Velcoro as the vampire (the spelling of his name changes in modern versions), Griffith as the werewolf, and Nina Mazursky as a gillwoman. Lt. Shrieve fights alongside them in the war.
** DC's 2011 reboot has a modern-day version of the team, featuring Frankenstein, Velcoro, Griffith, Mazursky, Frankenstein's Bride, and Khalis, a mummy.
* ''Urban Monsters'' stars a fishman, a zombie, a satyr, and a sasquatch, in a world with no apparent {{Masquerade}}.
* MarvelComics' ''Nick Fury's Howling Commandos'' featured a [[StealthPun werewolf]], a half-vampire and half-werewolf, a mummy, a clone of the Frankenstein monster, a gorilla with a human brain, and a zombie. Brother Voodoo and Satanna also join in on the fun. These are just the main, active members; the Howlers are indicated to employ just about every monster in the Marvel universe, including Lilith, daughter of Dracula, and ''both'' Abominable Snowmen (the cursed prospector and the representative of an entire yeti species, of course).
** This is a bit of a tradition in Marvel, dating back to the original Legion of Monsters (swamp monster ComicBook/ManThing, demon Comicbook/GhostRider, vampire ComicBook/{{Morbius}}, and ComicBook/WerewolfByNight), and revived with the new Legion of Monsters (every original member but Ghost Rider returns, in addition to N'Kantu the Living Mummy, gillman Manphibian, [[TheMolePeople Mole People]]-like Moloids, classic Marvel monster Orggo, etc. Oh, and of course, the Punisher as a Frankenstein's Monster.)
*** A later version of the Legion of Monsters appeared in ''Comicbook/{{Daredevil}}'' and featured Satanna, N'Kantu, Werewolf by Night, the original Frankenstein's Monster, and the zombie Simon Garth. The term "Monster Mash" is even used to describe them in the recap page of ''Daredevil'' #33.
** And not to mention the Fin Fang Four, made up of classic Marvel monsters who represent cornerstones of ''giant'' monster movies. Fin Fang Foom (giant reptile/dragon), Googam (alien conqueror), Gorgilla (giant ape/gillman), and Elektro (giant robot).
*** The original ''ComicBook/WerewolfByNight'' letter column featured a fan post in which the author made a joke about a Nick Fury[=/=]Jack Russell team-up called "Sgt. Furry and His Growling Commandos". Funny how that joke later became reality, in some sense of the word: NickFury actually never appeared in ''Nick Fury's Howling Commandos''; it was more a MythologyGag name and a pun on the monstrous nature of the team.
* This also fills out the rest of the cast of the Slave Labor Graphics comic (which ran also in Disney Adventures) called Little Gloomy (alternately titled "The Super Scary Monster Show")
* The titular ''Monster Plus'' is a one-man Monster Mash, being a vampire werewolf mummy zombie Frankenstein's Monster witch doctor. One of his teen sidekicks happens to be Kid Dracula (the other two are normal humans).
* Archie's ''TeenageMutantNinjaTurtlesAdventures'' comic had a one-off villain named Monsterex, who was a fusion of the WolfMan, the Gill Man, FrankensteinsMonster, and a vampire.
* ''IHuntMonsters''...what do you think?
* ''Boneyard'' features a vampire, a gillwoman, a Frankenstein's monster, a werewolf, a demon, a skeleton, and some normal dude. Yeah.
* ''TheLeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen''.
* Frequently used in [[BritishComics British Humour Comics]]:
** Used in the recently reprinted comic strip Number 13 in ''TheBeano'' and in the one-off strip Phone-a-Fiend.
** Fleetway comic strip ''Scream Inn'' and its later spinoff ''[[TheSpooktacularSeven The Spooktacular 7]]'' revolved around a vampiric innkeeper, a zombie maid, a witch, a ghost, a headless man, a skeleton, a devil and a talking spider.
* ''ComicBook/AllGhoulsSchool''
* ''ComicBook/ThePerhapanauts'', set in a secret agency to deal with otherworldly things and includes on the team we follow a super-intelligent sasquatch, a ghost, a mothman and a chupacabra.
* Brazilian comic [[MonicasGang Bug-a-Booo]] is set in a graveyard inhabited by [[http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_83SMTvh_Mkg/SvNaj8ERuAI/AAAAAAAAA8c/iUoDcCIy7nc/s400/12.jpg among others]] the title BedsheetGhost character, a clumsy vampire, and [[TheGrimReaper Lady McDeath]].
* Also from Brazil, [[http://www.maniadegibi.com/loja/images/Turma_do_Arrepio_01.jpg A Turma do Arrepio]].

* ''WesternAnimation/HotelTransylvania''. The main characters are Dracula and his daughter; their friends and guests include a mummy, a werewolf, Frankenstein, witches, an invisible man, a blob, and more. Justified by the title setting being, well, a hotel for monsters.
* ''WesternAnimation/MadMonsterParty'' has Baron von Frankenstein inviting Dracula, the Werewolf, the Invisible Man, Quasimodo, Dr. Jekyll and the Creature from the Black Lagoon to his private island in order to announce his retirement and appoint his successor as head of the Worldwide Organization of Monsters.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* ''Film/TheMonsterSquad'': Hey, [[CultClassic wouldn't it be cool]] if {{Dracula}} had a {{Narm}}tastic HoYay moment with FrankensteinsMonster, and the WolfMan [[MemeticMutation had 'nards]]? Oh, and the VirginPower [[MyGirlIsNotASlut sort of fails....]]
* Universal Studios' ''Film/FrankensteinMeetsTheWolfMan'' had, well, FrankensteinsMonster meet the WolfMan. This was followed by ''Film/HouseOfFrankenstein'' and ''Film/HouseOfDracula'', each uniting [[UniversalHorror their "big three" monsters]] (Drac, Wolfie & F's M) on screen. The series ended... nay, ''climaxed'' with the brilliant parody ''Film/AbbottAndCostelloMeetFrankenstein''.
* The film ''Film/VanHelsing'' includes, among other things, Dr. Frankenstein, his monster, Dracula, his brides, several werewolves, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and [[TheIgor a certain hunchback]] thrown in for good measure.
** A deleted scene featured a gillman-like creature living in Dracula's castle.
** Van Helsing mentions having fought gargoyles and warlocks in the past.
* The ''Film/{{Waxwork}}'' films do this, and also incorporate RealLife baddies like the Marquis de Sade.
** Second flick steps outside the horror genre to include a fantasy EvilOverlord, although horror characters remain in the majority.
* ''Film/TheLeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen'', due to the presence of Mr. Hyde and a few others.
* A recurring staple of the ''ElSanto'' series and other MaskedLuchador films.
* ''Film/StanHelsing'' has parodies of [[Franchise/FridayThe13th Jason Voorhees]], [[Franchise/{{Hellraiser}} Pinhead]], [[Franchise/ANightmareOnElmStreet Freddy Krueger]], [[Film/ChildsPlay Chucky]], [[Franchise/{{Halloween}} Michael Myers]], and [[Franchise/TheTexasChainsawMassacre Leatherface]].
* The inhabitants of Halloween Town in ''WesternAnimation/TheNightmareBeforeChristmas''.
* Several legendary creatures decide get together to beat the shit out of each other in a wrestling-style tournament in ''Film/MonsterBrawl''.
* ''Film/HouseOfTheWolfMan'' is an attempt at a Monster Mash in the vein of the classic Universal films.
* ''Film/TheCabinInTheWoods'': [[spoiler:The third act involves Dana and Marty unleashing all of the Controllers' monsters -- which include, among other things, [[EverythingsDeaderWithZombies zombies]], a GiantSpider, a giant cobra, ghosts, a CaptainErsatz of [[Franchise/{{Hellraiser}} Pinhead]], [[AIIsACrapshoot killer robots]], a [[WolfMan werewolf]], masked killers, and a [[OurMermaidsAreDifferent merman]] -- into their base.]] Special mention goes to the [[spoiler:evil unicorn, and the [[Franchise/EvilDead Angry Molesting Tree.]]]]
* ''Film/IFrankenstein'' has the Frankenstein monster getting mixed up in a war between gargoyles and demons.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* The ''MercyThompson'' series has both friendly and [[FurAgainstFang unfriendly]] fae, werewolves, vampires, witches, sorcerors and walkers (Native American shapeshifters) so far. Wizards, druids and angels are mentioned, and Charles' mother gave him Native American magic similiar to shamanism. The various species don't ''like'' each other -- we are talking TheFairFolk and AlwaysChaoticEvil vamps whose best defector gleefully [[ShootTheDog shoots]] and [[KickTheDog kicks the dog]] -- but there are nastier things out in the night. Like demons or politicians.
* ''KittyNorville'', likewise, features both friendly and unfriendly [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent werewolves]] and [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampires]]. As the [[MeaningfulName ironically named]] main character is a werewolf, you'd expect most of the bloodsuckers to be villains, but she's allied to more than she's made enemies. The werewolf packs and nearest vampire families usually keep a cooperative connection.
** The best example of a Monster Mash in this series is the latest book, ''Kitty's House of Horrors'', where the premise is a reality show starring all the B-list celebrities who are or claim to be supernatural: Kitty the werewolf talk radio host, a werewolf pro wrestler, a were-seal state legislator, a TV medium and stage magician who are both the real thing, a vampire beauty pageant winner, and a psychic supernatural debunker TV show star.
* As of ''Discworld/IShallWearMidnight'', the Ankh-Morpork Police Department has, in addition to various humans: a werewolf, a vampire, a zombie, some gargoyles, a golem, an [[MagiTek imp-based PDA]], a gnome, an [[TheIgor Igor]], a KingIncognito, a [[GreekMythology Medusa]], many trolls, many dwarves, a Nac Mac Feegle raised by gnomes [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg and Cpl. Nobby Nobbs]].
** And for those of you who haven't read the books, Nobby really does deserve a place on that list. He carries a card, signed by the Patrician of Ankh-Morpork and a local midwife of some skill, stating that, on the balance of probability, Nobby really is a human being. That's all you really need to know about him.
** In ''Discworld/ReaperMan'', before all the monsters started joining the Watch, the Fresh Start Club included two zombies, one [[OurBansheesAreLouder banshee]], one [[ThingsThatGoBumpInTheNight bogeyman]], a vampire, the vampire's wife who [[VampireVannabe isn't a vampire but insists on acting like one]], a ghoul (retired), and a wolf who turns into a WolfMan at full moon.
* ''Literature/TalesOfMU'' initially appears to be based on this to most readers, though it is not exactly on a voluntary basis - the WizardingSchool, Magisterius University, has ''graciously'' established a separate dorm for the non-humans and part-humans, supposedly to make them feel less pressured to conform to human ways but in actuality at least in part to keep the freaks out of sight. The characters' foibles, both personal and racial, make up a significant part of the series.
* ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles''. The main character is a wizard and frequently [[FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire teams up with an incubus]], which in this setting is the [[OurVampiresAreDifferent most humanlike kind of vampire]]. Other occasional assistants/sidekicks include werewolves, faeries and [[KnightInShiningArmor Knights in Shining Armor]].
** In addition, a few villains resemble this trope, particularly the phobophages (shapeshifting faeries that feed on fear) that [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin disguised themselves as movie monsters]] to use their reputations for horror, including CaptainErsatz versions of [[Franchise/ANightmareOnElmStreet Freddy]], [[Franchise/FridayThe13th Jason]], and [[Franchise/{{Alien}} a Xenomorph]]. And [[Film/ChildsPlay Chucky]].
* Clive Barker's short novel ''Cabal'', later filmed as ''Film/{{Nightbreed}}''. The monsters live in Midian in Canada. In the book Clive Barker's Nightbreed Chronicles, Barker explains the origins of many of these monsters, indicating that they did not share a common origin. One monster had its origin as a mutant engineered by the Central Powers during World War I (reminiscent of the G-8 series, which often featured paranormal entities devised by Central Powers researchers) and another a person mutated by a meteor (similar to Doc Savage's foe Mo-Gwei, Vandal Savage, Meteor Man, and L?Île aux trente cercueils by Maurice [=LeBlanc=]).
* Neil Gaiman's ''Literature/TheGraveyardBook'' not only features a boy raised by ghosts, but also an organisation called the Honour Guard consisting of a vampire, a werewolf, a mummy and some sort of djinn.
* ''Literature/ANightInTheLonesomeOctober'' by Creator/RogerZelazny features versions of {{Dracula}}, Franchise/{{Frankenstein}}, Film/TheWolfMan1941 (who's [[Film/AnAmericanWerewolfInLondon American]]), SherlockHolmes, JackTheRipper, and {{Rasputin| the Mad Monk}}, as well as a CuteWitch, a [[HoYay pair]] of {{Evil Sorceror}}s, a Druid, a SinisterMinister, and their TalkingAnimal {{Familiar}}s.
* ''Literature/{{Department 19}}'' features werewolves, vampires and FrankensteinsMonster.
* The novel ''Literature/FamilyBites'' by Lisa Williams is about a family of friendly neighbourhood werewolves whose new neighbours turn out to be FriendlyNeighbourhoodVampires.
* Kelley Armstrong wrote a novel with only werewolves. She then called the series Women of TheOtherworld and included witches, demons, and other supernaturals to be able to not be stuck only writing about werewolves.
* This was the entire idea behind Creator/BruceCoville's stand-alone book, ''Monster of the Year''.
* With the possible exception of Godzilla, anything on the list above is likely to be found drinking in Strangefellows in one {{Nightside}} book or another.
* KevinJAnderson's Dan Shamble novels take place in the Unnatural Quarter, a neighborhood set aside for undead, fairy-tale beings, and other supernatural folk generated by or emerged in the wake of the Big Uneasy.
* ''Literature/CityOfDevils'' takes place in a world in which every Universal, b-movie, and legendary monster comprise the ordinary John and Jane Does of the world.
* Daniel Gonzalez's ''Ravencraft'' series has Laura Talbot (a werewolf), Lucilla (a vampire), Abigail Valdemar (a zombie/Frankenstein-like creature) and Donovan Fort (a monster hunter) as main characters. Also Dracula, the Frankenstein Monster and other many evil werewolves, vampires and other monsters as villains.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* The BBC 3 show ''Series/BeingHuman'' has a vampire, a werewolf and a female ghost as flatmates.
* ''Big Bad Series/{{Beetleborgs}}'' had a mummy, a vampire, a frankenstein-style monster, a group of pixies, a ghoul, a living statue, and a "phantasm" all sharing a haunted house. Surprisingly, while ''they'' were real, the heroes and villains of the show were ''not'': the Beetleborg powers were pulled out of the world of fiction by a spell the phantasm cast, and the villains were also pulled out of that world as a GoneHorriblyWrong side effect.
* In Season 4 of ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'', Adam attempts to create an alliance between vampires and demons to fight humans.
-->'''Giles:''' ...And yet you say that the, the vampire went to the demon's aid. The two of them were working as a team?\\
'''Buffy:''' Everything except giving each other little pats on the behind.
** Buffy's own group of friends is a bit like a monster mash, too. There are Slayers (Buffy and Faith), vampires (Angel and Spike), witches (Willow, Tara and Giles), a werewolf (Oz), an ex-demon (Anya), a demon (Clem), with a couple of [[BadAssNormal normal humans]] thrown in the mix.
* The villains of ''Series/MahouSentaiMagiranger''/''Series/PowerRangersMysticForce'' had this kind of horror motif, starting with a Frankensteinish cyborg, a vampiress, a WolfMan (actually a knight in wolf-themed armor, but the reference is there), and zombie-like {{Mooks}}. The Frankenstein later got replaced by a mummy, then a whole other group came in led by a gillman, and they all worked for an EldritchAbomination.
* A pilot for a failed TV show called ''1313thAvenue'' aired in 1983 about a group of monsters and supernatural beings sharing an apartment building while trying to maintain a {{Masquerade}}.
* ''TheMunsters'' also combines this with some really weird genetics, what with a frankenstein and a vampiress having a werewolf for a son.
** The kid could be adopted.
** The series also establish that Sam Dracula (Lily’s father and Eddy’s grandfather) had at least one Werewolf son (he appears in an episode and looks much more werewolf-like than Eddy) so it could be consider that; the Dracula side of the family had lycanthropy as a common trait, Sam Dracula’s wife (and Eddy’s grandmother) could be a werewolf or Eddy could have been bitten by a werewolf member of the family in some point of his life.
** They also had a perfectly normal, fairly attractive, blonde girl for a niece on the wife's side. The fact that she was a normal attractive girl was played for comedy value by having none of them realise that was the case, treating her appearance as a bit of a shameful black sheep issue.
* A ''Series/ChappellesShow'' sketch had a mummy, werewolf, and Frankenstein's monster who were roommates and all victims of FantasticRacism.
* There was a short lived 70s TV series called ''The Monster Squad'' (unrelated to the movie pictured above) that is too campy to be believed. About a wax museum security guard whose "Crime Computer" brings the replicas of Frankenstein's Monster, Dracula and The Wolf Man to life. TheyFightCrime to [[TheAtoner make up]] for their namesakes' past misdeeds.
* ''Series/KamenRiderKiva'' has an overall horror theme, specifically based on the Universal Monsters. As a result, the villains are vampires and the main character is a {{Dhampir}} whose Rider powers come from a talking bat and include alternate forms based on a werewolf, gillman and a Frankenstein's Monster, as well as a base of operations which is a dragon bonded to the mold of a castle. TheMovie introduces two villainous Riders with powers based off of demons and Yeti, as well as anoter monster race whose members include a Gorgon, a Mandragora, a Gargoyle and a Mummy.
* ''Series/{{Supernatural}}'' is a veritable FantasyKitchenSink, but this trope is explicitly invoked in one episode during Season 4, "Monster Movie", where the Winchesters investigate killings apparently perpetrated by the famous silver-screen monsters (See header picture above) themselves. [[spoiler:It turns out to be a ShapeShifter who specifically tries to emulate them]]. The entire episode is a ShoutOut to classic horror movies.
* From ''Series/MrShow'': Monster Parties: Fact or Fiction?
* ''Series/DarkShadows'' had witches, vampires, a werewolf, a FrankensteinsMonster, ghosts, {{Captain Ersatz}}es of Dorian Gray and Jekyll and Hyde, and even an EldritchAbomination. They managed to miss mummies, though.
** If it had lasted long enough, they might have gotten mummies and a robot. ''KolchakTheNightStalker'' (original version, also produced by Dan Curtis) made up for the lack.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Music]]
* The {{Trope Namer|s}}, the 1962 novelty song "The Monster Mash" by Bobby "Boris" Pickett and the Crypt-Kickers. Sung by a MadScientist, it mentions [[FrankensteinsMonster his monster]], [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampires]] (including {{Dracula}} and [[Film/SonOfDracula his son]]), the [[Film/TheWolfMan1941 Wolf Man]], [[TheIgor Igor]], [[OurZombiesAreDifferent zombies]] and [[OurGhoulsAreCreepier ghouls]]. Pickett recorded several additional tunes in the same vein, most notably the [[ChristmasSongs Christmas-themed]] "Monster's Holiday".
** In 1973 the all-female dance troupe Pan's People made a video to the original song in which they dressed as CuteMonsterGirl versions of a vampire, a bat, a {{mummy}}, Film/KingKong and an [[GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe alien]]. Only one of these monsters was mentioned in the song, but top marks for originality.
** More recently there's also PaulAndStorm's "Lame Monster Party" which parodies the theme (but not the tune) of "The Monster Mash".
* The music video of BackstreetBoys' song "Everybody (Backstreet's Back)" features each band member as a different monster.
* Also, there's "Monster Party" by the German punk rock band Die Ärzte. And it's ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin.
* The
* AdamWarrock's "Zombie Girl"- It's implied that the titular character's friends are Dracula, Frankenstein's Monster, and The Wolfman.
* The German punk band DieArzte has a song called 'Monsterparty' which has the protagonist attending a party at [[{{Dracula}} Dracula's castle]] where he meets {{The Invisible Man}}, {{King Kong}}, FrankensteinsMonster, Film/{{The Wolfman|1941}}, [[DemBones a skeleton]], [[Film/{{Jaws}} the Great White Shark]], The {{Mummy}} and {{ET}}
* ChinaAnneMcClain's music video "Calling All The Monsters" features all sorts of monsters.
* The spoken preamble to "A Gorey Demise", by Music/CreatureFeature, is a group of undead monsters having a dinner party.
* Ookla the Mok's "Bride of the Wolfman" starts out with the WolfMan angsting about how he feels unloved. Then the mummy comes to cheer him up. Dracula and Frankenstein are mentioned as mutual acquaintances.
* Music/BuckOwens had a '60s single called "(It's a) Monster's Holiday" (no relation to the Bobby "Boris" Pickett Christmas tune mentioned above).
-->Frankenstein was first in line\\
And the Wolf Man came up next\\
Dracula was doing his stuff\\
Breathing down my neck...
* The song "Crasher-vania" from ''Music/StarBomb'', released by the WebVideo/GameGrumps, tells of Dracula throwing a big party for himself and all of his monster friends, when Simon Belmont crashes the party (twice) and kills everyone except Dracula [[VillainsOutShopping under the misguided assumption that they were all up to no good]]. Although when Dracula asks [[WhatTheHellHero what Simon's deal is]], Simon admits that it was because he never gets invited to parties.

* In the "9th Street Bridge" routine on his ''Revenge'' album, Creator/BillCosby describes going to the movies as a kid with his pal Old Weird Harold and seeing a film that had "Frankenstein, Wolf Man, Dracula, the Hunchback, the Mummy...''everybody'' was in it."
** Slight aversion in that we don't know whether the monsters actually teamed up since, despite sitting in the theater for several showings of the movie, Bill and Harold can't get up from hiding on the floor to see what actually happened.

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* ''TabletopGame/TheWorldOfDarkness:'' Depending on the game, [=PCs=] are any one of a number of horror movie mainstays, including [[TabletopGame/VampireTheRequiem Vampires]], [[TabletopGame/PrometheanTheCreated Frankensteins]], and [[TabletopGame/WerewolfTheForsaken Werewolves]], and at the behest of the Storyteller, can encounter and (most likely) try to kill each other.
** By extension, [[http://tgdmb.com/viewtopic.php?t=52316&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0 After Sundown]] started as a homebrew fix to the World of Darkness tailored to allow players to actually play Monster Mash type games ([=WoD=] was specifically built to make crossover games a bad idea). After finishing the rules set, the author decided to strip out the IP for public domain stuff and make it a stand alone game.
* In TheTrailOfCthulhu adventure book ''Shadows Over Filmland'', the player characters have the opportunity to battle CaptainErsatz versions of {{Frankenstein}} ('Doctor Gravenhurst'), the InvisibleMan ('the Non-Euclidean Man'), and {{Dracula}} (a vampiric dream-spirit of the historical UsefulNotes/VladTheImpaler) in individual adventures. In the the adventure "The Preserve", all three are lured to an island where they can face off against their old foes, the player characters, in exchange for the Necronomicon.
* Even plain ol' TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons has the potential for this.
** Especially {{Ravenloft}}, the gothic horror setting. And ''especially'' "Ravenloft: TabletopGame/MasqueOfTheRedDeath", set in 19th century Earth, complete with stats for Dracula and Frankenstein.
** The {{Mystara}} supplement ''Night Howlers'', while it focused specifically on lycanthropes, had more than enough different strains of werebeast in it to constitute a Monster Mash.
* This is basically the entire premise behind the game ''[=NightLife=]'', which features a bewildering array of monsters (many of them usable as player characters) trying to maintain a common {{masquerade}} viz. a humanity that still has them horribly outnumbered while ''also'' keeping themselves both fed and sane.
* ''Creature Feature'', a supplement for the ''Chill'' [=RPG=], may have been the first to do this for player characters. Unlike [=WoD=] or ''[=NightLife=]'', it kept the monsters as inherently evil, and gave points for killing heroes and scaring the crap out of hapless human victims.
* ''TabletopGame/BigEyesSmallMouth'' had a sourcebook more or less revolving around this: "Cold Hands, Dark Hearts". In a twist rather like Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer, almost all modern monsters are actually 'watered down' descendents of the real big nasties who once dominated the world before being sealed away. Vampires, Ghosts, Oni (the descendents of humans who bred with demons), Nephelim (their angelic counterparts), several types of animal spirit (including Minotaurs and Tengu) and Revenents (basic "dead body walking" type monsters that could, among others, resemble zombies, liches, or FrankensteinsMonster) are some of the creatures covered. For an extra twist, these were your ''player races''.
* ''TabletopGame/MustBeTuesday'' has a list of 20 playable monsters. Vampires? Yup. Angels? Sure. Robots? Cool. Blob Monsters? Go wild.

[[folder:Theatre]]
* OlderThanRadio: ''The Ghost Sonata'' (1907) includes a mummy, two vampires, a ghost, and a walking dead man.
* ''HouseOfFrankenstein'' by [[http://www.amazon.com/Martin-Downing/e/B001KE26FW/ref=sr_ntt_srch_lnk_4?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1270575397&sr=1-4 Martin Downing]] has this as its central premise. Dracula, the Wolfman, and the latest girl stalked by the Phantom of the Opera come to Dr. Frankenstein to have their problems solved by him. HilarityEnsues.
** This is really the template for most of the scripts he's put out.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Toys]]
* An old discontinued toyline called Titanium '[[http://www.toymania.com/news/messages/3443.shtml Monsters]] [[http://www.figures.com/databases/action.cgi?setup_file=fignews2.setup&category=actionfigures&topic=169&show_article=15 Of Rock]]' was pretty much this [[ThePowerOfRock AS A ROCK]] [[RecycledINSPACE BAND]].
* Just add "the children of" right before the word "{{Dracula}}" in the above description of the trope and you have the basic premise of ''MonsterHigh''. For bonus points, the five monsters namechecked above, plus the "children" addendum, happen to describe the five main characters of the line (respectively Draculaura, Clawdeen, Cleo, Frankie and Lagoona).
* The defunct Xevoz line had an undead faction (the "Unnaturals") that included vampires, ghosts, skeletons, mummies, and Frankenstein monsters in their ranks (the wolfman ended up in the "[[FurryFandom Meta-Beast]]" faction). And this isn't counting the insects, cyborg/robots, dragons, ''elemental forces of nature personified...''
* {{Lego}} did it twice with the [[FramingDevice Studios]] line[[note]][[OurVampiresAreDifferent Vampire]], {{Werewolf}}, FrankensteinsMonster, plus MadScientist and TheIgor[[/note]] and the Collectible Minifigures line[[note]][[OurVampiresAreDifferent Vampire]], {{Werewolf}}, FrankensteinsMonster, the {{Mummy}} plus MadScientist and [[OurZombiesAreDifferent Zombie]][[/note]]. And they are preparing a third with the Monster Hunters line[[note]][[OurVampiresAreDifferent Vampire]], {{Werewolf}}, FrankensteinsMonster, the Mummy, Film/CreatureFromTheBlackLagoon, [[OurGhostsAreDifferent Ghosts]] plus MadScientist and a [[OurZombiesAreDifferent Zombie]][[/note]].
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Videogames]]
* The Undead Scourge from VideoGame/{{Warcraft}} has waking skeletons, zombies, mummies, vampiric demons, {{Frankensteins Monster}}ish abominations armed with hooks and meat cleavers, magic devourers, gargoyles, undead dragons, necromancers, cultists, and fallen paladins make up its ranks.
** Not to mention [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent worgen]] opposing them come the release of the Cataclysm expansion for ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft''.
* ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}'' practically runs on this trope, with demons and mythical monsters thrown in for extra variety.
** Hell, even Cthulhu makes an appearance, as does Leatherface (in ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaOrderOfEcclesia''). The [[VideoGame/CastlevaniaI first game]] had almost all of the Universal Studios monsters (Wolfman didn't show up until ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaIISimonsQuest'').
* ''VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}}'' is essentially a Monster Mash in fighting game form. Many classic Universal monsters are represented, including Felicia as one of the fairly obscure Cat People, in addition to later horror movie mainstays like Lord Raptor (zombie), Bishamon (ghostly samurai) and Pyron (alien).
** And then, introduced in one of the sequels was [[CuteAndPsycho B. B. Hood]], a girl who is [[TokenHuman a regular human]], and also an amoral and sociopathic professional monster hunter. She was introduced, in part, to contrast against the monsters, to show that humans [[HumansAreTheRealMonsters have the potential to be as bad, or worse by comparison.]]
* The ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}'' series include a variety of fantasy staples like succubi, dragons, zombies, ghosts, and cat girls, many of which have class ranks named after various mythological creatures. Made more amusing in ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 3|AbsenceOfJustice}}'' and ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 4| A Promise Unforgotten}}'', where said monsters can be your school classmates or members of your political party, respectively.
* The Council in ''CityOfHeroes'' have ''scientifically created'' ([[AppliedPhlebotinum somehow]]) vampires and werewolves that can work together (though are rarely seen together at the same time). During the Halloween event, generic vampires, werewolves, zombies, ghosts, witches and pumpkin people are all about as likely to spawn from Trick or Treating. Really.
* [[VideoGame/{{Touhou}} Gensokyo]], being pretty much the definition of a FantasyKitchenSink, hosts plenty of tea parties bewteen witches, vampires, {{miko}}, ghosts, fairies, aliens, oni, goddesses, and more.
* The band Deuil from PopNMusic consists of a vampire, a werewolf and a mummy.
* ''MadWorld'' has the Mad Castle level for this. The {{Mooks}} are zombies (but bandaged up like mummies); the first area's bosses are the Shamans, a pack of werewolves; the second area's boss is [[ThatOneBoss Frank]], FrankensteinsMonster; and the last area's boss is Elise, somewhere between a [[HornyDevils succubus]] and a vampire.
* The PC game ''MonsterBash'' features several different horror-themed mooks, including but not limited to [[EverythingsDeaderWithZombies zombies]], [[DemBones skeletons]], [[HelpingHands severed hands]], [[MundaneMadeAwesome possessed rocking horses]]...
* The coin-op ''Monster Bash'' (unrelated to either of the above two) has the hero using the power of a magic sword to defeat first Dracula, then Frankenstein's Monster, and finally Chameleon Man; defeat all three, and [[EndlessGame you get to do it again]], at increased difficulty...
* ''PlanescapeTorment'' has a party that includes a hideously scarred immortal/regenerating human, a floating talking skull [[spoiler: which is actually a damned soul]], a part-demon girl with a tail, a succubus with pink bat wings, a githzerai (tall, thin, pointy-eared extraplanar humanoid), a malfunctioning clockwork robot, a perpetually burning man who is a living conduit to the Elemental Plane of Fire, and a ghost in a suit of armor.
* The EdutainmentGame [[BlasterSeries Math Blaster Mystery: The Great Brain Robbery]] has a MadScientist named BigBad Dr. Dabble as the BigBad. His mansion contains monsters who give you puzzles and word problems to solve. They include a bald vampire named Fang, an [[TheIgor an Igor-esque hunchback technician]], a witch known as Granny, a Film/CreatureFromTheBlackLagoon knockoff named Scales, a hooded fellow who looks like TheGrimReaper and two characters called [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Mummy Lady and Frankenbunny]].
** Reading Blaster Mystery has a cycloptic alien (?) hero trying to foil Dr. Dabble's plot with the help of a ghost.
* With the right expansion packs(particularly the Supernatural pack), you can turn ''Videogame/TheSims'' into this. Your Sim family can be populated with vampires, werewolves, witches, fairies, and even mermaids.
* In the ''KingdomHearts'' series, Sora, Donald and Goofy take on the form of monsters in [[{{TheNightmareBeforeChristmas}} Halloween Town]]. Of the trio, Sora becomes a vampire, Donald becomes a mummy, and Goofy becomes a parody of FrankensteinsMonster. Their forms are very popular with the fandom.
* ''VideoGame/UrbanRivals'': The Nightmare clan is are expy's on half of the examples above, others are based off horror movie characters.
* During a Solar Eclipse in ''VideoGame/{{Terraria}}'', hordes of classical monsters attack on the surface, such as Reapers, Swamp Things, Frankenstein's Monsters, Vampires, and Cyclops Zombies. Pity there are no werewolves or skeletons, as they can only appear at night or underground respectively.
* In ''VideoGame/MuppetMonsterAdventure'', Franchise/TheMuppets are transformed into classic monsters. Gonzo becomes Nose-feratu the {{Vampire}}, Kermit becomes Ker-Monster (FrankensteinsMonster), Piggy becomes the Ghoulfriend of Ker-Monster (the Bride), Fozzie becomes a Wocka-Wocka [[OurWerebeastsAreDifferent Werebear]] and Clifford becomes a [[FishPerson Muck Monster]].

[[folder:Web Animation]]
* The [[http://www.bogleech.com/flash/FEARHOLE1-PILOT.html pilot]] of [[http://bogleech.com/animations.html The Fear Hole]] has the classic universal monsters as the first creatures to come out of the titular hole. Well, them and [[OurMonstersAreWeird THE CREEPING COLON!]]. Whose film was shot into the sun.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Webcomics]]
* During the Storm of Souls arc in ''DominicDeegan'', the main characters are witness to a fight between an infernomancer and a werewolf. Donovan Deegan mentions that, in his day, they had a name for such fights: A Monster Mash.
* The original concept of the comic [[http://www.charbythevampirate.com/ Charby the Vampirate]] was to play with this particular trope. Living in the same cabin in the [[TheLostWoods woods]] are a [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampire,]] a [[WolfMan werewolf,]] two [[TheUndead zombies]] (one is a [[CuteWitch witch,]] the other a hoodoo practitioner) a bipedal merboy (basically a Gillman), a wizard, a demon and a [[{{Frankenstein}} patchwork monster]] pet/servant.
* ''Webcomic/GunnerkriggCourt'' features a fox demon, a LivingShadow, a ghost, and a Minotaur.
* ''HannaIsNotABoysName'' has thus far had a zombie SupportingProtagonist, a werewolf, some vampires, a [[HalfHumanHybrid half-selkie]], and a ghost. And it's barely into its third chapter.
** Pretty much every main character seems to have ''something'' paranormal about them. We don't even know what's up with Hanna or Ples yet, but at best even they are only AmbiguouslyHuman.
*** Coin toss says that even [[FanNickname CA]][[EnsembleDarkhorse $H]] is going to turn out to be a Pwca or a necromancer or something.
* In ''TheInexplicableAdventuresOfBob'', it turns out that [[HiddenElfVillage reclusive]] [[BigfootSasquatchAndYeti Bigfeet]] like to ride {{Unicorn}}s because Bigfeet leave big obvious tracks, while Unicorns leave no tracks at all.
* ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance''. The main character is currently a {{mook|s}} in the service of a supervillain, and has a sword powered by the blood of the innocent. He's good friends with an alien from a species that reproduces by destroying the host planet, a vampire, a witch, a psychotic KillerRabbit, and a mad scientist. He also owns a zombie head on a stick. And he's one of the good guys. Ostensibly.
* ''EerieCuties'' has a mismash of different monsters going to an AllGhoulsSchool.
* ''[[http://www.monsterful.com/ Monsterful]]'' has a world full of monsters of all kinds, from classic undead ones (zombies, vampires, ghosts) to mythological ones (gorgons, Loch Ness monsters, mummies), uncommon ones like ragdolls, golems and homunculi, and even some hybrid monsters (Zombpyre). The first chapter focuses on the Addams High AllGhoulsSchool.
* ''Webcomic/OwMySanity'' is a pastiche of the UnwantedHarem set in the Chtulhu mythos, with the hapless guy getting the attention of several lovecraftian ladies. So far he has encountered the {{Kuudere}} Servitor Nancy, an unnamed shoggoth in the form of a young girl with hand mouths, the Sleeper of N'Kai (a {{Yandere}} frog-girl) and CoolBigSis neighbour "Shubby".

[[folder:Web Originals]]
* One of the super-villain teams in the ''GlobalGuardiansPBEMUniverse'' is All Hallow's Eve. The team's members are Fenris, a mutant who can [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent shapeshift into a "Man Wolf"]], Crypt Thing, a [[OurZombiesAreDifferent super-strong zombie]], Shadowspawn, a [[ClingyCostume carnivorous alien abomination]], Black Rose, a [[TheFairFolk dark elf sorceress from Niflheim]], the Patchwork Man, a [[FrankensteinsMonster reanimated corpse created by mad science]], and Pumpkin Jack, a [[{{Golem}} scarecrow animated through dark magic]].
* the Upcoming ''GraveAcademy''.
* There's an online meme called [[OurMonstersAreDifferent "30 day]] [[CuteMonsterGirl monster girl]] [[http://fuckyeahmonstergirls.tumblr.com/post/26751189905/30-day-monster-girl-challengechallenge]], where you draw a specific [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin monster girl type or challenge daily, for a month.]] The list includes mythological creatures like the [[SnakePeople naga]] and [[HeadlessHorseman dullahan]], to [[LittleBitBeastly more creature types]] like insect girls and [[CatGirl feline girls]], to horror types like the [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampire]] and [[OurGhostsAreDifferent ghost girls]], to [[FantasyKitchenSink even SCIFI types]] like the [[RobotGirl robot girls]] and [[GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe aliens!]] There even some that ask for [[UpToEleven even more]] [[HumanoidAbomination bizaare]] [[OurMonstersAreWeird types than that!]] Challenge 28 specifically asks for an entire group of monster girls in one pic, making this trope go anywhere from downplayed, to exaggerated...

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/SabrinaAndTheGroovieGoolies''.
* At least two ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDoo'' TV movies do this. In ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooAndTheReluctantWerewolf'', Shaggy is turned into a werewolf against his will to take Wolf Man's place in a monster race organized by Dracula. ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooAndTheGhoulSchool'' has Scooby and Shaggy becoming gym teachers for the daughters of Dracula, Frankenstein, the Mummy, Wolf Man and the Phantom. Franchise/{{Godzilla}}, the Film/CreatureFromTheBlackLagoon, and a random alien, along with their daughters, show up at the end and convince Shaggy and Scooby to move on.
** And once again one of the later series has the cast teach a bunch of monsters how to act monstrous, so they can stand up to a powerful sorceress who's trying to steal their powers. By the end their efforts turn out to be [[GoneHorriblyRight way more successful]] than originally intended.
* ''DrakPack'', a short-lived SaturdayMorningCartoon from the 80s, features the teenaged descendants of Dracula, Frankenstein's Monster and the Wolf Man joining forces to fight a Vincent Price-esque criminal mastermind and his henchpersons: a female vampire, a mummy, a toad-like hunchback and a fly/human hybrid.
* The short-lived series ''WesternAnimation/GravedaleHigh'' had a vampire, a werewolf, a zombie, a gorgon, a mummy, a Frankenstein's monster, and some sort of Igor-type being going to a monsters' high-school where one of the teachers is a human. Humorously enough, the vampire's name is Vinnie Stoker (His last name being a ShoutOut to ''Dracula'' author Bram Stoker) and the gorgon's name is Doozer (Short for "Medusa").
* In the third season of ''WesternAnimation/{{Ben 10}}'' we are introduced to monster-themed alien villains: a mummy, a werewolf, a Frankenstein monster, and a ghost. Of course, Ben gained the ability to turn into each of these himself (he actually had the ghost all along, but this was when the others debuted and were all made a group). These guys are all from the same star system - and at the end of ''Secret of the Omnitrix'' zombies from another planet in the same system (Anur Ormeron) are mentioned.
** ''WesternAnimation/Ben10Omniverse'' devotes a plot arc to revisiting the premise, with the return of the Anurian villains and Ben's alien versions (including a new fifth monster alien, a vampire), unrelated horror villains and shoutouts to additional works.
* Camp Mini-Mon, in the show ''Mini Monsters'' (part of the AnimatedAnthology ''WesternAnimation/TheComicStrip''), is filled with kids of various monsters, ghosts and ghouls.
* The ''Dingbat and the Creeps'' segments of ''The Heathcliff And Dingbat Show'' feature a vampire dog, a living skeleton and a talking jack o'lantern.
* The groovy RankinBass film ''WesternAnimation/MadMonsterParty''. Creator/TimBurton claims it as an influence.
* The latter-day ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' cartoon "Night of the Living Duck" had Daffy Duck dreaming that he was a lounge singer in a club full of classic movie monsters, including Dracula, Frankestein's monster (with Bride), Wolfman, the Mummy, the Fly and Godzilla (all names changed to protect copyright, of course). He ends up singing (with the voice of Mel Torme) "Monsters Lead Such Interesting Lives".
* The ''WesternAnimation/BuzzLightyearOfStarCommand'' episode "Revenge of the Monsters" featured a team-up between robotic vampire NOS-4-A2, cyborg werewolf the Wirewolf, and the Frankenstein's Monster-esque PsychoPrototype XL.
* ''WesternAnimation/CasperScareSchool'' featured an AcademyOfAdventure filled with all sorts of different monsters, including a werewolf, a zombie, a mummy, and of course a ghost.
* An animated special based on ''The Monster Mash'' had the Universal Monsters, as well as a group of antagonistic creatures composed of a slasher, an alien, and an EnfantTerrible.
* ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'' had an episode with a collection of classic monsters (Wolfman, Dracula, Frankenstein's monster and Bride, Igor, Creature from the Black Lagoon, The Blob, The Mummy, and [[KingKong King Pong]]) booking a get-together at Scrooge's mansion before protesting a movie theater that Scrooge owned which played monster movies, saying that the movies gave them a bad name. Fortunately it turned out that the movies instead made them popular, and they happily accepted jobs as actors in more monster movies.
* One episode of ''CountDuckula'' has the titular Count and co. being chased by a mummy he inadvertently brought back to life, a Frankenstein's monster {{Expy}} accidentally resurrected by Igor, a werewolf who came to the castle to escape from the full moon but got exposed and transformed due to Nanny's interference, a space invader taking the form of a cabbage, and Goosewing. The episode is appropriately named "[[LongTitle The Return of the Curse of the Secret of the Mummy's Tomb Meets Frankenduckula's Monster and the Wolf-Man and the Intergal-actic Cabbage...]]".
