Saturday mornings were when you'd wake up, race to the T.V. and tune in to watch super heroes and Bugs Bunny cartoons. But ONLY in Ontario, and at 6:30am, could you wake up to Vincent Price reciting his creepy opening monolog for the scariest...the most bone chilling...horrifying hour of pure locally produced fromage ever! Hilarious House of Frightenstein was a blast, and did I mention really, really campy?

Billy Van was the True North's answer to Lon Chaney. Well, okay, maybe the low-budget, 1970s kiddie sketch comedy version. Van played most of the characters himself, and obviously had a great time of it. Best part is that this series is available on dvd, and definetly worth checking out if you aren't already familiar.


  1. Yes, it's the 40th this year! Have you seen the "special report" that we did on - an homage to The Librarian:

    Also, in the first episode did a little segment on it too!

  2. LOL! That was PERFECT!!!

    Thanks a bunch for sharing, fellow Canadian Creep! ;D
