* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Frankenweenie}}'', the children turn their pets into expies of various classic horror monsters: a vampire-cat, a kaiju-turtle, a werewolf-rat, a mummy-hamster, a bunch of gillman-like sea monkeys, an invisible fish, and of course the main character, a dog resurrected like Frankenstein's Monster.

* Universal Studios' ''Film/FrankensteinMeetsTheWolfMan'' had, well, FrankensteinsMonster meet the WolfMan. This was followed by ''Film/HouseOfFrankenstein'' and ''Film/HouseOfDracula'', each uniting [[UniversalHorror their "big three" monsters]] (Drac, Wolfie & F's M) on screen. The series ended... nay, ''climaxed'' with the brilliant parody ''Film/AbbottAndCostelloMeetFrankenstein''.
