Frankenstein Reading Room ADVENTURES OF JERRY LEWIS "Scared Silly" Part 2

...he had rented a supposedly-haunted house for $12 a month.
It was "haunted"...by former horror movie stars Boris Killoff (Krankenstein), Bela Le Ghouli (Drinkula), and Peter Leery (Dog Boy), who were preparing for a return to the silver screen!
Who will trap whom?
See the inane answer...tomorrow!
With the Comics Code limiting use of the classic monsters to humorous or decidedly non-threatening versions, DC decided to limit them to funny/satirical tales.
Jerry would go on to meet versions of the Mummy, Invisible Man, Creature from the Black Lagoon and other film and print fiction monsters.
However, fellow DC Comic comedian Bob Hope would end up with ongoing appearances by dopplegangers of Frankie (Coach Franklin Stein), Drac (Dr. Van Pyre), and Wolfy (Professor Von Wolfman) as the faculty of Benedict Arnold High School, which Hope's nephew attends!
That these new characters look exactly like the trio of monsters in this story is attributable to the fact they share the same artist, Bob Oksner!
