3.0 out of 5 stars Need For Entire Series To Be Reissued May 22 2006
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Just a brief taste of a great show. The 'rights holder' to this wonderful tv series, should make all 130 1-hour episodes avaialable (in their original format) in a box-set. There is indeed an adult audience who watched and remebered this great canadian tv series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still worth the purchase!! Feb. 28 2012
Format:DVD
As a 1970s kid, I grew to appreciate the occasional import from Canada and around the world. In the early 1970s, New York City's WNEW-TV, Metromedia 5 had an awesome weekday afternoon lineup for the kids. Among the afterschool stuff was a double-dose serving of the original Mickey Mouse Club, with Annette and the gang...and, from Canada, The Hilarious House of Frightenstein! It was a gas, man!! Billy Van and the whole crew put in a solid half-hour of fun...we loved every minute of it.
You see ignorance is not only bliss, it allows for fun. None of us were aware that HOF was originally a one-hour Canadian show...and we could have cared less. Just as we never knew about wide-screen/letterbox movies, and accepted full-frame/pan and scan on television...and still enjoyed our movies...so we loved and accepted whatever FUN, FUN shows came on televison.
So, by all means, seek out the full-hour DVD box sets of HOF...go on. But, why not grab a copy of this New York favorite, too. So it's only half an hour. Watch it on the days when you're short on time...and have some FUN!

3.0 out of 5 stars Here's the deal with this DVD release Dec 14 2005
By A Customer
Format:DVD
The show was originally produced as a one-hour show, with no laugh track. This is how it was broadcast in Canada in the early 70's. When it was later syndicated in the US, the episodes were cut to a half-hour and a laugh track was added. Unfortunately, the four episodes on this DVD are from the US syndication package.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing Jan. 24 2006
By Bob
Format:DVD
I wish I'd read the reviews before ordering. As already stated, these are indeed the half-hour US syndicated versions. They are sloppily edited and include a terrible laugh track. I'm still almost tempted to recommend these for purchase, if only to enourage the rights-holders to re-issue more episodes on DVD(the proper, full, one-hour Canadian eps with NO laugh track) but, really... this is a disappointment and the great work of Billy Van deserves better.

1.0 out of 5 stars Had I paid full price... I'd be pi$$ed! Feb. 7 2006
By Riddler
Format:DVD
I TOTALLY agree with the last guy! I should have read the reviews first. I've recently been watching the reruns on cable television, and this dvd just doesn't cut it. The laugh track, as well as additional audio sounds, interfere with the audibility of the characters. During a Grizelda the cook sketch, I had a hard time hearing her dialogue over the added bubbling cauldron noises, and unnecessary laugh track. It was a great campy show, but it wasn't THAT funny! There's childrens laughter before the jokes and punch lines are delivered.
For the same amount of money, you could add the Drive-In Classics channel to your cable subscription, and receive about 130 days of complete 1 hr canadian episodes... with equal or better visual quality, and NO added audio!!! Highly disappointed.
