The Original Monster Mash is an album by Bobby (Boris) Pickett and The Crypt-Kickers. It was recorded and released in late 1962, following the success of Pickett's "Monster Mash" single. The Cryptkickers included Leon Russell and Gary Paxton.[1]

The album's somewhat unwieldy title arose from the need to distinguish it in the marketplace from an album by John Zacherle on the rival Cameo-Parkway label, titled Monster Mash and featuring Zacherle's cover version of the song.[2]
