MONSTER PARTY HAS SEEN THE FUTURE... AND IT DOESN'T WORK!
JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE, and MATT WEINHOLD, offer some quality control for the world of tomorrow. Tighten your skant for a fantastically FUBAR festival of fun called... FUTURE FAILS!!!
So what's a FUTURE FAIL? Well, it's either some sort of technology that the sci-fi genre promised us that we never got, or technology that is sooooo stupid, we should consider ourselves lucky we never got it. We'd love to give you more specifics, but then we'd be a future fail.
Joining us for this consumer cautionary tale, is a returning guest who is a MONSTER PARTY favorite! She's a gifted comedian, writer, producer, director, and E.T. provacateur, who always brings the party to our podcast. Please welcome back.... SUE MURPHY! (CHELSEA LATELY, WANDA AT LARGE, THE ELLEN DEGENERES SHOW, LATE SHOW WITH DAVID LETTERMAN, THE TONIGHT SHOW WITH JAY LENO, EWOKS)
IF ALL THIS WERE NOT ENOUGH, WE'VE GOT A SPECIAL DROP IN FROM OUR OLE PAL DAVID WEINER, AND SOME FABULOUS MONSTER PARTY NEWS!
TAKE THAT THE FUTURE!

YOU CAN DO IT, MONSTER PARTY!
JAMES GONIS, SHAWN SHERIDAN, LARRY STROTHE, and MATT WEINHOLD, take a "fantastic journey" with a celebrity who's IMDB credits could circle the Earth. He was always a welcome presence in our young lives, and it's an honor to have him on our show. Taking time out from his busy schedule up on Witch Mountain, please welcome, the one and only... IKE EISENMANN!!!
Ike has starred in such MONSTER PARTY favorites as ESCAPE TO WITCH MOUNTAIN, RETURN FROM WITCH MOUNTAIN, THE AMAZING COSMIC AWARENESS OF DUFFY MOON, DEVIL DOG: THE HOUND OF HELL, STAR TREK II: THE WRATH OF KHAN (He's only SCOTTY'S NEPHEW!), and the short-lived but much-loved 70's sci-fi series, THE FANTASTIC JOURNEY! He's also guest starred in a multitude of classic TV shows that include GUNSMOKE, MANNIX, KUNG FU, EMERGENCY, WONDER WOMAN, FANTASY ISLAND, EIGHT IS ENOUGH, THE JEFFERSONS, T.J. HOOKER, and a ton more!
Aside from his on-screen projects, Ike has lent his vocal talents to such works as NAUSICAA OF THE VALLEY OF THE WIND, GOBOTS, DINO-RIDERS, POM POKO, THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME 2: THE SECRET OF THE BELL, and HOWL'S MOVING CASTLE. I know, it's like music to your ears!
And years after the release of first two WITCH MOUNTAIN films, Ike re-united with his co-star, KIM RICHARDS, in the reboot film, RACE TO WITCH MOUNTAIN. And all they found was a Rock.
Ike was gracious enough to give us a pretty big chunk of his day to discuss his amazing career, and regale us with some truly fascinating behind-the-scenes tales. I mean, this guy worked with the likes of DONALD PLEASENCE, CHRISTOPHER LEE, RODDY McDOWALL, RAY MILLAND, and BETTE FREAKIN' DAVIS!
Not bad for a kid armed only with talent, determination, and telekinetic powers.
