Just caught a Blacula double feature last night ... "Blacula" and "Scream Blacula Scream". William Marshall's facial hair is quite frightening ... and those eyebrows, oh those eyebrows. I had flashbacks of my youth...hiding under a blanket while watching this. He was quite creepy.
Blacula is a 1972 blaxploitation horror film produced for American Intenational Pictures. It was directed by William Crain and stars William Marshall in the title role. The film deals with the character of Mamuwalde, an
African prince transformed into a vampire and then imprisoned in a
sealed coffin by Count Dracula, only to find himself released in the 1970s.
A sequel, Scream Blacula Scream, was released in 1973, in which Marshall resumed his role as Blacula/Mamuwalde.
Amok Time has a 12" Blacula Action Figure coming out in early 2009.

I absolutely loved this story when I was a child. I had the book with the record that "dinked" when you were supposed to turn the page. It was written and illustrated by Wende and Harry Devlin in 1972. The story is about a mean spirited man, Mr. Butterbean, who tries to stop halloween in the town of Oldwick. It's up to Old Witch to stop him and rescue halloween! I had found the book again years ago at a yard sale but wasn't able to get my hands on the record. Thanks to the MOSTLY GHOSTLY MUSIC SHARING BlAAHHHGGG!!! I now have the soundtrack to my book (dinks and skips included)! Check it out here. He also has an awesome selection of creepy stories and ghoulish tunes from the 1970s uploaded. All I need now is my Mickey Mouse record player and I'm good to go!

It just wasn't Saturday morning without the Groovie Goolies!
A spinoff of the Archie comic book and television series, the 1970s
Saturday morning cartoon GROOVIE GOOLIES followed the musical
adventures of a hipster rock band that also happened to be classic
horror-movie monsters like Frankenstein, Wolfman, Mummy and Dracula.
A fun stop-motion animated film which was released in 1967. The film was created using the Rankin/Bass "Animagic" process (think Rudolph, Santa Claus is Comin' to Town, Year Without A Santa Claus). Mad Magazine creator Harvey Kurtzman penned the script, and Mad artist Jack Davis designed many of the characters.
In addition to the famous monsters seen in the film, Mad Monster Party
also features several celebrity likenesses. Boris Karloff and Phyllis
Diller's characters are both designed to look like the actors
portraying them, while the hunchbacked lackey named Yetch is a physical
and vocal caricature of Peter Lorre.
Dr. Frankensten decides to retire, leaving the monster business to his nerdy nephew,
Felix Flanken. Frankenstein plans to announce his decision at a
convention of monsters that includes his creature and the creature's
more intelligent mate, Frankenstein's seductive fembot laboratory
assistant Francesca, Dracula, the Werewolf, the Creature From The Black Lagoon, The Invisible Man, Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde, The Mummy, It (a knock-off of King Kong),
and many more. However when Felix proves to be an incompetent (and
unsuitably kind-hearted) human, the monsters plot to eliminate him and
gain control of Frankenstein's latest discovery: the secret of total
destruction! Now Available on DVD .

Disney released this album in 1964. Side one contained 10 stories in which the narrator (Laura Olsher) would set up the situation and the sound effects would take over and tell the story. Side 2 was a collection of sound effects grouped by category. These were for creating your own story and create we did! I think I still have some homemade scary tales on cassette somewhere.
In 1975 owning this board game automatically made you cool. All my friends in the neighborhood would gather round the dining room table to play, except Stacy. If I recall correctly she was afraid of the game....she was also afraid to watch Scooby Doo, go figure.
This board game was based on the classic attraction from Walt Disney World.
Players would try to move their pawn through the haunted mansion. A major
portion of the game board consisted of rotating discs that changed the
path a player's pawn could take.
I miss this game. It lived in my grandmother's attic for years and then mysteriously disappeared. If you ever see this one at a flea market or yard sale make sure to snatch it up.
