''Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein''[[note]](the official title is actually ''Bud Abbott Lou Costello Meet Frankenstein'', but we're using the current one because it is more known)[[/note]] is a 1948 horror comedy. It is a {{crossover}} between Universal's MonsterMash horror films and Creator/{{Abbott and Costello}} series of comedies.

Detaching itself from the continuity of the previous UniversalHorror films, this movie centers around the cowardly Wilbur (Costello) and his [[StraightMan no-nonsense]] buddy Chick (Abbott) who work as baggage clerks. One day they receive an order to take two boxes, which have just come from London to the States, to [=McDougal's=] House of Horrors. The boxes contain the remains of Count {{Dracula}} (Creator/BelaLugosi) and FrankensteinsMonster (Glenn Strange), who are in fact alive and soon escape the place.

One of the favorite films of Creator/QuentinTarantino, who's noted that its successful [[GenreBuster genre-blending]] helped inspire his own style.
