Milton the Monster (ABC, 1965-1968)

Milton the Monster or The Milton the Monster Show aired on ABC from October 9, 1965 to September 8, 1968. It was created, produced and directed by Hal Seeger.

Milton the Monster was a Frankenstein-looking fellow who emitted various quantities of white steam depending on his moods. He was created by mad scientist Professor Montgomery Weirdo and his assistant Count Kook who lived in a haunted house on Horror Hill. Milton turned out to be a very smiley, good natured monster because Weirdo’s elbow was bumped by Kook when pouring the “tincture of tenderness” into Milton’s mold. Milton’s voice (Bob McFadden) was based on Jim Nabors’ Gomer Pyle.

In total, 26 episodes were produced. In March 2007, Shout! Factory released the complete series on DVD.
