THE HILARIOUS HOUSE OF FRIGHTENSTEIN Synopsis
In THE HILARIOUS HOUSE OF FRIGHTENSTEIN, Count Frightenstein and his cohorts are banished from Transylvania to Frankenstone. The series follows the adventures of The Count, Igor, Grizelda “The Ghastly Gourmet”, The Librarian, The Wolfman, Bwana Clyde Batty, Dr. Pet Vet, The Professor, and numerous other ‘characters’ live and otherwise, not to mention ‘the horror master host himself’, Vincent Price. Each one-hour episode is a refreshing mix of humor and educational segments, all flavored with the spice of mock horror.
Helmed by horror film legend Vincent Price (House of Wax, The Fly) and Canadian comedian/actor/singer Billy Van (The Sonny & Cher Show, The Hudson Brothers Show), THE HILARIOUS HOUSE OF FRIGHTENSTEIN is one of the most iconic and influential Canadian television series of all time and the longest running kids’ TV show in Canadian history. An instant hit when it debuted in Canada in 1971, this pseudo horror kids TV series attained cult status with children, teens and adults, and is still revered today.
