Fantastic Comedy

A Sitcom whose premise includes at least one fantasy or Science Fiction element, often an Amusing Alien. These were especially popular in The '60s, as writers and networks cast about for novel alternatives to the more conventional Dom Coms of the preceding years.

See also: Magic Realism, Mundane Fantastic, Urban Fantasy, and Monster Roommate. Not to be confused with a comedy that just happens to be very good. See Supernatural Soap Opera for a serious action and drama filled version that focuses more on the supernatural world instead of trivial everyday things.
