Lemon Grove Kids Meet The Monsters is a trilogy of short movies released during 1965. The movies are satires of the Bowery Boys series of movies from the mid-1940s to late 1950s.

Each movie of the trilogy features the antics of the bumbling Lemon Grove Kids. They are titled The Lemon Grove Kids, The Lemon Grove Kids Meet the Green Grasshopper and the Vampire Lady from Outer Space, and The Lemon Grove Kids Go Hollywood!. Moviemaker Ray Dennis Steckler created the characters, wrote 'Hollywood', and directed the first movie of the trilogy. He also features in each segment, billed as Cash Flagg. The three shorts were edited into a feature, The Lemon Grove Kids Meet The Monsters. For theatrical showings, the movie was interrupted by the mummy from the movie going into the audience.
