In the early 1970s, it didn't have to be October for there to be a monster mash on the small screen, as the TV show The Hilarious House of Frightenstein was thrilling children with episodes that were both educational and eerie, including memorable appearances by Vincent Price. Now, Groove Vinyl Records is releasing an album of the cult show on vinyl for the first time (in an official collaboration with the Vincent Price Estate and his daughter, Victoria), and we have the release details and a look at the cover art:
An exact release date has yet to be announced, but you can view three versions of the cover art and the official details below. The album will include "all of the classic character segments, all of the Vincent Price dialogue, and a special song chosen by The Wolfman from his DJ booth in the castle."

From Groove Vinyl Records: "Groove Vinyl is excited to release for the first time on vinyl, THE HILARIOUS HOUSE OF FRIGHTENSTEIN. Featuring all your favorite segments from the original Canadian children's television show with sketches by cast Billy Van, Fishka Rais, Guy Big, Mitch Markowitz, Julius Sumner Miller and Vincent Price.
This debut release of THE HILARIOUS HOUSE OF FRIGHTENSTEIN will feature four separate covers (Igor, the Wolfman, the Count and Vincent Price) and each album will be pressed on limited edition, custom colored vinyl. The only difference between each album is the cover artwork and the color of vinyl they are pressed on. Collect one or collect them all because once these colors are gone, they're gone.
Each album will include an inner booklet featuring the oral history of THE HILARIOUS HOUSE OF FRIGHTENSTEIN as well as unreleased behind-the-scenes photos from the set. For those that pre-order, there will be some bonus horrendous goodies included.
