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 (1955). 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 »
Oh my! What a treat it is to see this show again now airing seven days per week on the Drive-In Classics channel! For a 30+ year old show, the video and audio quality are simply superb and now to see it in colour and on a big screen. I am one happy viewer! I have vague memories of seeing this show in its first run along with the supernatural cult classic series Strange Paradise, which is also shown on the same channel and airs back to back with HHOF during the week days. I had no idea that Billy Van played so many characters. And I really thought Grizelda was played by a woman back then!
Too bad the Gemini Awards only started in 1987. Billy Van should have received some acknowledgement for his numerous roles on this show. Very pleased to see a fan made production titled "Return to Transylvania". Extensive interview segments with Billy Van and puppeteer Joe Torbay are all we will ever see as extra behind-the-scenes trivia.
