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:
