This 1959 LP features cover art by Jack Davis of Mad Magazine. He also did many other LP covers such as Gene Moss" "Dracula's Greatest Hits, and Zacherley's "Monster Mash Party." The songs are sung by Hans Conreid and Alice Pearce. Conried's inimitable growl and impeccable diction were perfectly suited for portraying comic villains and other mock-sinister or cranky types, such as Captain Hook (and Mr. Darling) in Walt Disney's Peter Pan and the Grinch from Dr. Seuss' Grinch Night.
Conried also was a cast member of The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show, voicing the character of Snidely Whiplash in the Dudley Do-Right shorts. He was well known as the Williams family patriarch, Uncle Tonoose, on the sitcom Make Room for Daddy.

Alice Pearce began working in nightclubs as a comedian and was cast in the Broadway production of On The Town. Gene Kelly was so impressed by her that she became the only cast member to be included in the film version in 1949. Her comedic performance was well received by critics and public alike, and she was given her own television variety show. More movie roles followed, and she made appearances on Broadway, where she met her husband director Paul Davis during a production of Bells Are Ringing. In 1964 she joined the cast of the television series Bewitched. As the nagging and nosy neighbor, Gladys Kravitz, Pearce's scenes were almost entirely reactions to acts of witchcraft she had witnessed at the house across the street. Her hysterical accusations against Samantha, played by Elizabeth Montgomery, and the disbelief of her husband Abner.
