Vincent Price's monologues were done over the course of a few days, and the producers were dissatisfied with them being insufficiently scary. Price complained there was nothing he could do with his lines being so badly written. As a result of the producers conceding the point, the writers had to pull all-nighters rewriting the material to suit Price's needs. See more »

Holy boiled condor eggs, I was NUTS for this show as a kid in New Jersey! I always thought it was produced in NYC, not Canada ... but given the creativity of SCTV and other Canadian TV shows, I'm not so surprised. Billy Van was awesome as Count Frightenstein, but I really thought The Librarian was the best part of the show. Oddly enough, I don't remember Vincent Price being in this -- but I do remember the theme song! (To the tune of "The Battle Hymn of the Republic") "Glory, glory Transylvania / The werewolves and bats will always maim ya / The murky moors will likely claim ya --" ... OK, so I DON'T remember that last line! Anyone who does can e-mail me with it.
