So close your eyes and you will find
that you've arrived at Castle Frightenstein. Perhaps the Count will find a way

They're back! Created in 1971 "The Hilarious House of Frightenstein" ran for over 25 years as it aired throughout Canada and some parts of the United States. The Hilarious House of Frightenstein has built up a huge cult following since it left the airwaves in 1997 and thanks to Critical Mass and Anchor Bay Entertainment we are transported back to the 1970's and the Castle Frightenstein all over again.
Welcome back to the Castle Frightenstein and its ghoulish inhabitants for 9 more hilarious installments starring The Count (Billy Van) and Igor (Fishka Rais). What more can be said about the incredible and iconic Billy Van, he was a comedic genius and he was definitely the show all by himself. Billy Van played nine other characters on the show besides playing the Count and he played all of them to perfection. He also surrounded himself with an assortment of wacky characters that made the show even more enjoyable to watch.
In this latest installment of "The Hilarious House of Frightenstein" you'll join the Count and his ghoulish henchmen Igor as they welcome an array of Ghastly and Ghoulish characters to the show. Some of these wacky characters are Grizelda "The Ghastly Gourmet, The Librarian, Bwana Clyde Batty, Dr Pet Vet, Harvey C. Wallbanger and more. The 9 full length episodes and bonus feature included run approximately 447 minutes with mono sound and they are presented in their full screen format.Read more ›
Originally produced by CHCH TV in Hamilton as an educational show, the incredibly talented Billy Van and the Markowitz Production company assembled a line up of segments featuring Dr Pet Vet, Grizelda, The Professor, a laboratory scene, the Librarian, sonnets by Vincent Price, Zany Zoo time, and likely, the first regular rock videoVJ, the Wolfman. As kids, we probably missed the educational aspect in the show, but hung onto the brilliant characters in the cast. Igor, the Count, the Wolfman, Dr Pet Vet, and the Librarian seemed larger than life. Brucie, the immobile, silent type always seemed to be the intelligent one. I think he got the best lines. Building on a career that spanned decades, Vincent Price rapped the Frightenstein theme poem and floated across thunderlit graveyards.

Frightenstein, over the years, has garnered a fan base that will not let it die. Fans are split over exactly why it is so popular. Some suggested reasons include the theme song, "Gory, Gory, Transylvania", the mark of the three toed sloth, Brucie, Igor, Gronk, Grizelda, Billy Van in his various roles, the golf gall gorilla, or the funky Moog synthesizer theme song.Read more ›
Billy brought to life such an unforgettable cast of characters: Count Frightenstein, Grizelda the Ghastly Gourmet, the Librarian, the Oracle, Dr. Pet Vet, Bwana Clyde Batty, the Maharishi, the Grammar Slammer, the Singing Soldier, and the Gorilla. And let's not forget about the other talents that helped make the show what it was: Fishka Rais as the loveable Igor, Vincent Price as, well, Vincent Price (!), physicist Julius Sumner Miller as the Professor, Guy Big as the "mini me" Count, and puppeteer Joe Torbay as Gronk, Harvey Wallbanger, and the Grammar Slammer's Bammer. Oh, yeah ... and let's not forget about Brucie! You can't deny that it was certainly a full and entertaining hour of children's' programming that we got! The best part was when one of the actors said something so hilarious you could hear the crew cracking up behind the cameras. Too funny!Read more ›
