Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein

Synopsis: The world of freight handlers Wilbur Grey and Chick Young is turned upside down when the remains of Frankenstein's monster and Dracula arrive from Europe to be used in a house of horrors. Dracula awakens and escapes with the weakened monster, who he plans to re-energize with a new brain. Larry Talbot (the Wolfman) arrives from London in an attempt to thwart Dracula. Dracula's reluctant aide is the beautiful Dr. Sandra Mornay. Her reluctance is dispatched by Dracula's bite. Dracula and Sandra abduct Wilbur for his brain and recharge the monster in preparation for the operation. Chick and Talbot attempt to find and free Wilbur, but when the full moon rises all hell breaks loose with the Wolfman, Dracula, and Frankenstein all running rampant.

I don't scare easily. Neither

do I where money's concerned.

I got 'em cheap. European agent

picked my name right out of thin air.

Very interesting.


Mr. McDougal.

Hey, Chick,

here's one.


I have to run along.

Something's come up. That means

we'll have to break our date tonight.

It ain't another man, is it?

Of course not.

Silly boy.

Boy, I'm floatin'

on a cloud of love.

You little blimp, I'll let the air

out of you if you don't give me a hand.

You understand that?

Thank you.

Boy, is this kid lost.

Take that rope. Get up on that box

and tie it to that handle up there.


Nothing matters no more.

I'm so happy. Go on, get up there!

Here it is.

Hold still now.



Stop him! Is he trying to

ruin me? You're insured.

Yes, and if those exhibits are

damaged, I intend to collect.


Well, there you are. Shall

I wrap it up? No, you idiot.

Take those to my House of

Horrors and uncrate them.

If that's the way you handle baggage, I'm

going to have the insurance agent there...

to inspect them

before I accept delivery.

Then it's gonna cost you

overtime because I'm a union man.

I work only 16 hours a day. A union

man only works eight hours a day.

I belong

to two unions!

Get those down to my place! All right.

Hey, Wilbur, here's a key. Open the door.

I'm not gonna like this.

Come on, gimme a hand.

Come on,

get it inside.

Pull it! You want me

to do all the work?

Come on, help me

with it, will ya?

Uh-oh. What's the matter now?

Somebody's got a knife

in my back. Oh, nonsense!

Where's the switch?


Sandra should

see you now.

Turn around. Look what you're afraid of.

Turn around!

I... Come on, get up on

your feet. It's only a dummy.

Dummy nothin'. It was

smart enough to scare me.
