Adams and Feldon Meet Frankenstein
7 December 2007 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

This is kind of a placeholder episode. Not so bad as to make you stop watching, but no where good enough to rank in the series top episodes. Originally premiering in February, this episode is most interesting today in that it was for the most part, shot at the old Santa Monica Pier amusement park. Max and 99 are enjoying a day off together and Max accidentally gets a KAOS Kewpie doll when he inadvertently tells the attendant the password.

Suddenly KAOS is chasing them all around the park, through the Tunnel of Love (99 wants to go, Max is VERY reluctant!) until they are captured by Dracula (Robert Ridgely) and Frankenstein (indicating this may have originally been planned as a Halloween episode)who are the henchmen of Waxman (Richard Devon) a KAOS agent who runs the wax museum and the secret Kewpie doll smuggling system Max accidentally uncovered. (Incidentally, at one point Max calls the Chief for help on his shoe phone and the Chief says they will be there right away, but then NEVER shows up!) Devon does nothing with what should have been a plum role (it looks like it may have been written for Vincent Price or Boris Karloff, both who were doing a lot of TV guest spots at the time)and experienced funny man Robert Ridgely does absolutely nothing memorable as the Count. Max and 99's relationship also seems to have gone backwards a little since "99 Loses CONTROL" lending more evidence that this was actually produced for a Halloween broadcast (back when Platt was having back problems and had limited or no roles). But at the least the Pan Pacific amusement park looks great!
