Monster Squad
This live-action Saturday morning series was broadcast over NBC for one season in 1976. Its plots were reminiscent of the Batman TV series.

Before working on The Love Boat, Fred Grandy starred in this show as Walt, the night watchman at a wax museum. He gave life to the statues of Count Dracula, Frankenstein's Monster and the Wolf Man, enabling them to fight crime.

Not to be confused with the movie The Monster Squad.

Tropes featured include:

  • Mission Control: Walt, though he usually leaves mission control to join the monster heroes in the climactic battle.
  • Tickle Torture: One episode has a villain who uses giant feathers in an attempt to tickle Our Heroes to their doom. It's as silly as it sounds.
  • Treehouse of Fun: They hold their meetings in one.
