Show Summary

"Another lovely day begins for ghosts and ghouls with greenish skin; So close your eyes and you will find that you've arrived in Frightenstein…" - Host Vincent Price, from the opening of the show. The Hilarious House of Frightenstein was a Canadian children's show that combined campy horror with humour and educational segments. The show was filmed at CHCH-TV, Hamilton, Ontario in 1971. The main characters were all played by super talented acted Billy Van: Bwana Clyde Batty, The Gorilla, Grizelda, The Ghastly Gourmet, The Librarian, The Maharishi, The Oracle, Dr. Pet Vet, The Singing Soldier and the best character in the show, The Wolfman. Other actors in the series were Fishka Rais, who played the loveable Igor. Julius Sumner Miller who played a zany Professor who liked to teach the kids about science; in real life he worked with Albert Einstein! Guy Big played the Midget Count. The show also featured horror master Vincent Price, who hosted as himself.
