Billy Van

Billy Van

Billy was a prolific Canadian comedian and actor, who had regular appearances on "The Sonny and Cher Show", "The Hudson Brother's Razzle Dazzle Hour", and CTV's "Bizarre". He was best known as playing almost every character on CHCH TV in Hamilton, Ontario's "The Hilarious House of Frightenstein".

Here's a quick list of all of his characters:

Count Frightenstien - A pizza and toast eating vampire, head of the castle Frightenstone
Bwana Clyde Batty - Host of the Zany Zoo
Grizelda, the Ghastly Gourmet - The castle witch, who's lair is the kitchen. Possibly one of the world's WORST cooks!
The Librarian - An old crumudgeon who haunts Castle Frankenstone's library. He is convinced that fables and nursey rhymes are the most horrifying tales ever.
The Oracle - Using a crystal ball and a Zodiac wheel, he tries to fortell the future.
Dr. Pet Vet - The castle veterinarian
The Wolfman - Disk jockey for radio station EECH, who played a tune from the 60's or early 70's, with a kaleidoscope light show.
