Did You Know?


The heads of the "Boris" and "Monster" figures are the same basic shape, appropriately enough, with Boris' fine-tuned for a more human appearance and the Monster's for that monster-ish look (notice the figures' heads when they're in the same shot, both more or less in profile, during the "greeting the guests" scene).

When the clock chimes, Dr. Frankenstein says it's 1:00, but the clock actually reads 6:55, plus it chimes six times. See more »

Baron von Frankenstein: Ah... a lifetime of experimentation capped in one small vial. Now to the final step: The infusion of energy.

Alternate Versions

In recent video releases, a few seconds of footage has been edited. In the scene at the pharmacy when the postman shows Felix a real fancy stamp on his letter, the new edited version edits the shot of Felix looking over the letter for the stamp and the postman pointing to it. So right after the postman calls the stamp "Fancy", it cuts right to a close-up of the Baron von Frankenstein stamp. See more »

"Did you sell your soul to the devil at that monster party last night?"
4 November 2014 | by utgard14See all my reviews

Baron von Frankenstein summons all the classic movie monsters like Dracula, the Mummy, the Wolfman, etc. to his castle to announce his retirement. When the monsters find out he plans to name his nerdy nephew his successor, they aren't pleased. I love Rankin/Bass and I love classic horror movies, especially the Universal monster movies. So this is right up my alley. As with the classic Rankin/Bass TV specials, the stop-motion animation is the primary selling point. If the animation does nothing for you, then you're in for a tough slog here. Boris Karloff and Phyllis Diller are the two most well-known actors providing voices to this. Others are impressions of the likes of Peter Lorre and Jimmy Stewart. The character Francesca is probably the sexiest thing Rankin/Bass did. Her catfight scene is awesome. The songs are terrific. So much fun. This really is a must for fans of Universal monster movies and Rankin/Bass.
