While some lament that Hollywood is running out of ideas, many of those same complainers forget that Hollywood came up with the single best idea of all time: turning old television shows into movies. What classic sitcoms are soon to be adapted for the big screen?
• The Spookletons (1961–1967): The new family next door aren’t your average neighbours—they’re a family of skeletons! Hilarity ensues as they try to get along with their neighbour, a straight-laced beat cop who thought he’d seen everything—until now!
• The Chillingsworths (1962–1965): When a new family moves into the neighbourhood, they’re not what they appear to be—unless they appear to be a vampire who married a werewolf! They’ll definitely turn some heads walking their infant son—a baby Creature from the Black Lagoon—past the home of their uptight neighbours, a pastry chef and a senator who frequently needs to be up early.
• The Scary Family (1960–1981): Something odd is going on with the new neighbours—they’re a shelf full of brains living in jars! Watch the sparks fly as their neurotic neighbours—a jittery patent attorney and an easily startled corporate accountant—continue living their lives, peacefully unaware that house next door isn’t just simply between owners right now.
