Film: Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein
Our heroes are in a pickle now!

Abbott and Costello Meet Frankensteinnote  is a 1948 horror comedy. It is a crossover between Universal's Monster Mash horror films and Abbott and Costello series of comedies.

Detaching itself from the continuity of the previous Universal Horror films, this movie centers around the cowardly Wilbur (Costello) and his no-nonsense buddy Chick (Abbot) who work as baggage clerks. One day they receive an order to take two boxes which just have come from London to the States to the McDougal's House of Horrors. The boxes contain the remains of Count Dracula (Bela Lugosi) and Frankenstein's Monster (Glenn Strange), who are in fact alive and soon escape the place.

Dracula arranged this little charade to come abroad in hopes that he'll restore his weakened servant. In short, to get a new brain for the Monster. He is working with a scientist Sandra Mornay to accomplish this task, and she has found the perfect candidate for the "donation": Wilbur.

But that's not all; Larry Talbot (Lon Chaney, Jr.), The Wolf Man himself, joins our heroes to stop Dracula. Too bad that he happens to turn into a werewolf at most inappropriate times...
