ALICE COOPER HOSTS "THE MONSTROUS MUNSTER MASH" ON WGN AMERICA

18-EPISODE Munsters Marathon to air on Halloween

NEW YORK, October 13, 2010 - This Halloween you'll howl with laughter and scream with delight as WGN America presents "THE MONSTROUS MUNSTER MASH," 18 back-to-back episodes of "The Munsters," television's First Family of Fright. Hosted by legendary shock rocker Alice Cooper, the nine-hour marathon featuring the odd occupants of 1313 Mockingbird Lane will air Sunday, October 31st from 10am to 7pm ET (7am - 4pm PT).

The iconic Alice Cooper, who was named the world's most "beloved heavy metal entertainer" by Rolling Stone, will be hosting opens and interstitials for "THE MONSTROUS MUNSTER MASH."

WGN America's Munsters Marathon is sponsored by M&M'S(R) Chocolate Candies.

"THE MONSTROUS MUNSTER MASH" will feature the following gruesomely goofy episodes:

Munster Masquerade - Marilyn's boyfriend talks his parents into inviting the Munsters to their masquerade party before he meets them.

Eddie's Nickname - Eddie wants to quit school after his schoolmates nickname him "Shorty." But that becomes the least of his problems when Grandpa mixes up a "magic milkshake" that's supposed to make Eddie grow six inches taller overnight. Paul Lynde guest stars.

Movie Star Munster - Herman thinks he's Hollywood-bound when he signs what he thinks is a movie deal but is actually an accident policy from a pair of insurance scammers.

Herman the Rookie - Herman tries out for the Los Angeles Dodgers and baseball legend Leo Durocher.

Just Another Pretty Face - Herman becomes disfigured by a bolt of electricity and ends up looking like Fred Gwynne. Dom DeLuise guest stars.
