Although most of the show was played for laughs, the regular science segments featured a genuine professor who studied under Albert Einstein and who had also been resident scientist on the original The Mickey Mouse Club. See more »
In a cooking segment Grizelda tosses an orange into the cauldron and misses but there's still an accompanying splash sound as the orange bounces off the floor. See more »
Another lovely day begins with ghosts and gouls with greenish skin. So close your eyes and you will find that you've arrived at Castle Frightenstein. Perhaps the Count will find a way to make his monster work today. For if he solves this monstermania he can return to Transylvania. So welcome where the sun won't shine to the castle of Count Frightenstein.

To a modern audience "Frightenstein" is probably laughable but I was a religious viewer of it during the 70's. A quirky cast of characters and if you really payed attention you might even have learned something. Of course there was always Vincent Price's foreboding closing! Original, non-commercial, creative, funny, and for that matter fun. I still remember the show and still hear the music playing in my head. I still feel some shame in never realizing that one man (Billy Van) played most of the roles! A classic kid's show that never insulted our intelligence.
