Bud Abbott Lou Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948) 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.

Movie Quote(s):
  • Dr. Lejos/Dracula: Young people making the most of life - while it lasts.
  • Chick Young: I don't get it. Out of all the guys around here that classy dish has to pick out a guy like you. Wilbur Grey: What's wrong with that? Chick Young: Go look at yourself in the mirror sometime. Wilbur Grey: Why should I hurt my own feelings?
  • Wilbur Grey: Well that's gonna cost you overtime because I'm a union man and I work only sixteen hours a day. McDougal: A union man only works eight hours a day. Wilbur Grey: I belong to two unions.
  • Wilbur Grey: Mr. Talbot, and I thought you were such a nice man too. Look at you, you're a mess. Larry Talbot: Last night I went through another one of my horrible experiences. Many years ago I was bitten by a werewolf. Now, whenever the full moon rises I turn into a wolf myself. Wilbur Grey: Oh pal. That's all right; I'm sort of a wolf myself.
  • Larry Talbot: You don't understand. Every night when the moon is full, I turn into a wolf. Wilbur: You and twenty million other guys. Larry Talbot: [slamming Wilbur into a locker with Chick going in behind him] Listen, I might tear you limb from limb! Wilbur: [turning to Chick in the locker] Is that serious? Chick Young: He'll murder ya! Wilbur: That's serious.
Movie Trivia:
  • Originally titled "The Brain of Frankenstein".
  • Ian Keith, the original choice for Count Dracula in Dracula (1931), was originally considered for Dracula in this film. Bela Lugosi wasn't considered at first because the studio thought he was dead. When they learned Lugosi was alive, Lugosi's agent shamed the head of the studio into getting him the role by saying, "He is Dracula! You owe this role to Lugosi!"
  • Boris Karloff was approached to play the Monster but he thought it was insulting to the character and it would not do well at the box-office. But as a favor to Universal, he did publicity work for this film. In several photos taken by Universal's publicity department, he is seen standing in line purchasing a ticket at a theater in New York City where the film is playing, and in other stills, he is shown admiring the poster art for the film outside the theater lobby. Karloff later starred with Abbott & Costello in Abbott and Costello Meet the Killer, Boris Karloff (1949).
  • The animation sequences of Dracula-as-a-bat and Dracula-changing-from-bat-to-Dracula were done by Universal-International's animator, Walter Lantz (of Woody Woodpecker fame).
  • This film was such a hit that it was reportedly Universal-International's second highest grossing film of the year.
