Lemon Grove Kids Meet the Monsters is a trilogy of short films released in 1965. The films are considered a tribute to the long-running Bowery Boys films from the mid-1940s to late 1950s.

Each film in 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!. Cult filmmaker Ray Dennis Steckler created the characters, wrote 'Hollywood', and directed the first film in the trilogy. He also stars in each segment, billed as Cash Flagg. The three shorts were edited into a feature, "The Lemon Grove Kids Meet the Monsters". In theatrical showings, the movie was interrupted by the mummy from the film going into the audience.
