Fantastic Comedy

Go To

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: Comic Fantasy, Magic Realism, Mundane Fantastic, Urban Fantasy, Life Embellished, 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.
