Just How Much Time Did Frankenstein's Monster Spend On A Lab Table? (video)

If you watch the entire Universal series with Frankenstein's Monster...

...the Monster often spends an inordinate amount of time strapped to lab tables.

In the original 1931 film, of course, he's born on one...
...and almost dies on it.

In the sequel, BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN (1935), he avoids them altogether.
SON OF FRANKENSTEIN (1939) puts him back on the table...
...and so does GHOST OF FRANKENSTEIN (1942).

In FRANKENSTEIN MEETS THE WOLF MAN (1943), he's on the table...
...just long enough for a quick pick-me-up.

It's in the two HOUSE movies where he really racks up the table time.


In these films, he gets up for a brief last-reel stomp and that's it.

Finally, after a brief lie-down in ABBOTT & COSTELLO MEET FRANKENSTEIN (1948)...
...he gets to go on a proper rampage.

I neither own nor claim any rights to this material.  Just having some fun with it. Thanks for watching!
