Product Details


Product Description

Something is amiss in the sleepy village of Frankenstone, for high above there are strange goings on in the Castle Frankenstein. The Count, along with his assistant, Igor, are busy at work to make his monster "Brucie" live and take his rightful place in the annals of "Distinguished Monsters." Welcome to the brilliantly wacky world of the Canadian Cult Classic TV show, "The Hilarious House of Frightenstein." The show follows the adventures of The Count, Igor, Grizelda "The Ghastly Gourmet", The Librarian, Bwana Clyde Batty, The Oracle, Dr. Pet Vet, The Professor, The Wolfman and horror master himself, Vincent Price. The majority of these characters are actually performed by one man: comic genius Billy Van. Each one hour live action episode is a combination of variety, humour, and educational segments, all flavoured with the spice of mock horror, which had a lasting impact on the youth of the '70s. This Limited Edition 3 Disc Set contains 13 full-length episodes and Bonus collectable character magnets.

4.0 out of 5 stars GORY.. GORY.... TRANSYLVANIA Nov. 9 2006
By The Critic TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Finally this incredible Canadian children's show from the 1970's makes its way to DVD. I picked this wonderful 3 disc set up more for nostalgia than anything else, but I must admit that I've really enjoyed watching these episodes. It's been so long I almost forgot how funny Billy Van was and how memorable his characters were; this guy was truly amazing to watch and very entertaining. It's also great to see the amazing and iconic Vincent Price again as the narrator for the show. This show ran for 25 years and it has a huge cult following. Thanks to Alliance and Critical Mass for finally releasing this 3 single sided disc set with great packaging and artwork. The video does suffer here and there and the sound isn't always perfect or consistent, but the picture and sound are definitely much better than I expected. The set only consists of 13 episodes; hopefully future sets are in the works. Enter the House of Frightenstein if you dare!

DVD Episodes Include:
Amos Moses
My Baby Loves Lovin
Tennessee Birdwalk
Gypsy Woman
I've Been Hurt
Heather Honey
Incense & Peppermints
Midnight Confessions
There Is a Mountain

This classic children's TV show from the 1970's is filled with campy horror and will definitely bring a smile to those who remember it. These episodes are the full-length versions with no laugh track. They are very enjoyable and absolutely belong in the annals of distinguished television shows.

NOTE: For some reason, Amazon is showing the back cover of the DVD box in my customer images as the default image. Be sure to click the other image to see the front cover.

My mom watched this in the 1970s, and years ago she made me into a fan of this awesome series. I am so proud this is Canadian, and I am glad these DVDs were even produced. The set comes with 10 episodes, and character magnets!

I would look forward to watching this show every week when it was on. The characters that Billy Van puts together are the greatest. Vincent Price to was always cool to listen to as he provided the linking narrative in classics Vincent Price.

Growing up as a kid and see the reruns of this odd ball kids show on weekends in the morning, made in Hamilton in the 70's one actor dresses up for most of the characters in the show. Although it doesn't look like it . This is a great kids show.... Ages 5 and up in my opinion
