If you are 25 or older you probably remember what i consider to be the greatest childrens television show of all time-'The Hilarious House Of Frightenstein.this program was the definition of brilliant.great sets,great costumes,great characters but above all else great writing.when i was a kid i would absolutley go nuts when this how came on and would be transfixed for the following 60 minutes of the program,no other 60 minute show to this day has done that to me.Billy Van was of course the brains behind it all aswell as playing 9 of the lead characters,my favorite of course being the 'Maharishi'.Unfortunatley as you may or may not know he passed away last year at 68,it was truly a sad day for me,what made it sadder was really the overall lack of national attention giving to his death.

I really feel sorry for todays children not being able to experience something as fantastic as 'The Hilarious House Of Frightenstein'.Todays programming for children really seems to be more about generating revenue than about forming and education our most valuable assets.I real feel lucky as a kid growing up having such witty and intelligent programs like 'frightenstein', 'the muppet show',and to a lesser extent 'david and goliath'. Todays children spend so much time in front of the t.v. watching garbage just random images to keep them busy while parents attend to 'more important' matters.Unfortunatley this program is still not available on DVD,but hopefully it will be so when I have children we can sit back together and watch one of the most talented human beings and laugh together.

The LSD dancing werewolf ruined an entire generation with its subliminal pap.

The way they made fun of the African language (Ooga-Booga) was classy.

It was all about Vincent Price.
