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 »

You know I knew a mosquito who was so afraid of heights that he was afraid to land on a shag rug. Ha ha! Uh-oh! LUNCH TIME!

Syndicated episodes showing the Drivein and Space networks in Canada starting 2006 are missing the music segments where Igor and the Wofman dance behind a psychedelic background. This is due because of the the rights to the rocks songs had expired (many which are now considered rock classics or golden oldies). See more »
What can be said about a great locally produced kids show that was on in mornings? I remember always getting up in the morning to watch "Hilarious House" before going to school. All of us who were kids in the 70's from Southern Ontario watched it all the time. Even when it was on reruns early weekend mornings in the 80's. A show that had all hilarious characters mainly played by Billy Van. The Wolfman was the best with is "Chime Time" and then throwing a golf ball at a clock to tell what time it was. Then watching Igor dance with him with psychedelic visuals behind them to some 60's rock. Or Aaron the ape getting nailed with a golf ball and falling over. Or how about 'it's Zany Zoo Time" "Ooga Booga". Too bad Global didn't snag the rights to the show when they bought CHCH 11 (known also as ONTV). E-mail Global and maybe they will do it for their Prime or Deja View specialty channels. Hilarious House will always be a classic show for us from Southern Ontario. Remember Vincent Price at the end.."The castle lights are growing dim, there's no one left but me and him. When next we meet in Frankenstone, Don't come alone"
