Castle Frankenstein

    Dr. Victor Frankenstein
Dr. Victor Frankenstein
Voiced by: Jeff B Davis
  • Arbitrary Skepticism: Despite being around zombies, vampires, mummies, werewolves, time-travel and so on, he insists that the Tooth Fairy and Santa Claus are not real.
  • Complete Immortality: Thanks to his immortality serum, Victor no longer ages and regenerates from all manner of harm.
  • Conditioned to Accept Horror: Having lived in a general area full of monsters for centuries, having brought the dead back to life in hundreds of different ways while also being unkillable, one's own life does not seem so precious. It is implied that he once feared his creation when he made him, only to become annoyed by his creation's constant whining and purple-prose.
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Death Is Cheap: Victor's opinion of it after achieving immortality. Death tried to change that by reaping his sons, not realizing that Victor hated them.
  • Four-Philosophy Ensemble: Represents The Cynic.
  • Hidden Depths: He always wanted to manage a band.
    • He seems to be really good at baking cookies.
  • "Well Done, Son" Guy: He had a strained relationship with his father due to Victor's mad scientific interests when he was a child, making him seem "too interesting." On his deathbed, he made Victor vow never to bring him back to life. To find closure, he at first punches his lifeless corpse until he decides to break his vow, bring him back to life and shoot his head off with a shot-gun.

    Elizabeth Frankenstein
Elizabeth Frankenstein
Voiced by: Britta Phillips
  • Complete Immortality: Thanks to her husband's immortality serum, Elizabeth no longer ages, is immune to vampirism and regenerates from all manner of harm.
  • Four-Philosophy Ensemble: Represents the Optimist.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: In the original novel, Elizabeth is murdered by the Creature as revenge for Victor destroying the Bride of Frankenstein. Here, Elizabeth is alive, well, and immortal.
  • Team Mom: Her maternal instincts make her the one person who actual cares about her two, elderly children and the Creature.

    Professor Sanguinaire Polidori
Professor Sanguinaire Polidori
Voiced by: Scott Adsit
  • Complete Immortality: Thanks to Victor's immortality serum, Polidori no longer ages and regenerates from all manner of harm.
  • Composite Character: Of a sort. His appearance and general character (a depraved mad scientist with a relaxed attitude) are based of Dr. Pretorious from The Bride of Frankenstein, his name is borrowed from John William Polidori, an author friend of Mary Shelley and the writer of The Vampyre, the first vampire story in western fiction.
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Depraved Homosexual: Besides being the most sardonic, proper and classiest resident of Castle Frankenstein, he is very open about his kinks, ranging from having a candle-light dinner with Victor's disembodied penis to masturbating in a public bathroom after getting his previously disembodied arm back.
  • Four-Philosophy Ensemble: Represents the Apathetic.

    Frankenstein's "Creation"
Frankenstein's Creature
Voiced by: Scott Adsit
  • Berserk Button: Don't call the Creation a "Monster"... although he's more likely to go into a depression then a rage over it.
  • Drama Queen: While everyone else in Somewhere in Eastern Europe have long since been acclimated to their monstrous nature, the Creation insists on waxing ennui about his unnatural existence.
  • Frankenstein's Monster: This being a parodic take on Frankenstein, the Creation is inevitably a more comedic version of the Trope Namer.
  • Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness: In a sharp deviation from traditional portrayals of the Creature, he has a habit of speaking like a Romanticist, which is more in line with his erudite book counterpart.


    Heinrich Frankenstein 
Voiced by: Mark Rivers
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Disappeared between the first and second seasons along with his brother Gustav. Their existence is alluded to once in Season 2 when Elizabeth says she wants another baby.

    Gustav Frankenstein

Somewhere in Eastern Europe

    Count Dracula
Count Dracula
Voiced by: Chris Shrearer
  • Bigger Is Better in Bed: Given how he flaunts it, it is probably true.
  • Comically Lopsided Rivalry: Dracula seems to take great pleasure in the affair Elizabeth has with him, constantly rubbing it in Victor’s face and going on and on about his sexual prowess. If only Victor cared.
  • Dracula

    Stewart Lawrence 
Voiced by: Chris Shrearer
  • Our Werewolves Are Different: Thanks to a werewolf him from the future, Lawrence became the wolfman. Here, he is virtually unkillable unless he is shot with a silver bullet by someone that loves him.
  • You Already Changed the Past: He tries to go back in time to kill himself, only to reveal that the werewolf that turned him into a werewolf was himself from the future.

  • The Alcoholic: He starts drinking too much due to the stress of his job thanks to Victor. It is dialed up after hanging out with Jesus, eventually leading to his own death.
  • Don't Fear The Reaper: While he paralyzes mortals with fear, immortals on the other hand don't seem all that bothered with it. Victor and Polidori in particular have nothing but contempt for him.
  • The Grim Reaper: Death has the classic, Grim-Reaper appearance, complete with a dark red cloak, a Sinister Scythe and a pair of wings.

    Joe the Vampire Hunter 
Voiced by: Joe Unger
  • Go-Karting with Bowser: Joe’s greatest life ambition is to kill Dracula, as well as killing any vampire he finds. Depending on the episode, he would be stalking vampires - even stating once that killing Dracula was his life-long goal - while in other cases he would be drinking in the same bar as them, being in the same steam-bath with them and even enjoying movies with them.
  • Patriotic Fervor: Being the redneck that he is, Joe has a huge hard-on for America, the American flag and the Founding Fathers, killing vampires in their name and having a Heroic BSoD when he is forced to kill the recently sired Founders.
  • Science Is Wrong: He seems to have this opinion (or at least of mad science).
  • Straw Character: He's a blatant representation of uber-patriotic conservatives.

    Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde 
Voiced by: Dan Harmon
  • Abhorrent Admirer: Henry seems to be an admirer of Frankenstein (who does not appreciate his admiration).
  • Straw Misogynist: Or at least Hyde is. At one point, Mr. Hyde attempts to hit on Elizabeth and a gender-bent Victor. When they reject him, he derisively responds with "Lesbians!"

Historical Figures

    Blanket Jackson 
Voiced by: Mark Rivers
  • Fratbro: He has the airs of an obnoxious party goer that thinks (or at least tries) to be cooler than he really is. Even his attempts at looking "interesting" come across as weaksauce to his father.
  • "Well Done, Son" Guy: He does what he thinks is interesting (having a "neck-tat" and a pet ferret with a neck-tat) out of a desire to please his father, who is disappointed in him because he is much too normal for his liking.

    Michael Jackson 
Voiced by: Britta Phillips
  • Mistaken for Pedophile: It turns out that Michael actually hates children, only hanging around them out of a desire to look "interesting" to other people.

    Thomas Jefferson 
Voiced by: Scott Adsit

    President Barack Obama 
Voiced by: Bradnon Johnson

    Adolf Hitler 
Voiced by: Scott Adsit
  • Freudian Excuse: Literally. Adolf would have dreams of him as a toddler breast-feeding from a rabbi. He visited Sigmund Freud over this dream. It is strongly implied that this is why he is so self-aware in his bigotry.
  • Troubled Sympathetic Bigot: While he is a horrible anti-semite, he seems to view such opinions less a creed to live by and more of a mental handicap that haunts his every waking moment. Thus, he goes to Frankenstein to cure himself of his hatred.

    Mother Teresa 
  • Absurdly Elderly Mother: Her spotlight episode that was pulled from airing concerned her needing an abortion from Dr. Frankenstein in spite of being well past the childbearing age.
  • Good Girls Avoid Abortion: Averted. She consults Dr. Frankenstein with the intent of getting an abortion.

    Elke Sommer 
Voiced by: Jessica Makinson

    Ronald Howard

    Albert Einstein 

    Mohandas K. Gandhi 
Voiced by: Mark Rivers

    Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson 
Voiced by: Mark Rivers

    Jesus Christ 
Voiced by: Andy Dick
  • Comically Small Demand: He goes to Dr. Frankenstein - a man that can use scientific processes to switch brains, bring back the dead and enhance the human condition - to get him socks. He even offers Victor eternal paradise for them.
  • It's All About Me: His whole deal in "Edgar Allan Poe's Jesus!", always going on about how great he is, to the point of being responsible for the deaths of various historical figures (Joan of Arc, Elvis Presley and even Death himself) and not even noticing or caring.
  • Jesus Was Way Cool: Seems pretty laid-back all things considered. Subverted, as "Edgar Allan Poe's Jesus!" revealing that he has a monstrously inflated ego, making him so obnoxious that Death himself dies of alcohol poisoning and an over-dosing of Jesus.
  • Obliviously Evil: Due to his own selfishness, he is responsible for the deaths of various historical figures like Abraham Lincoln, Joan of Arc, Elvis Presley and Death.

    John Belushi/Jim Belushi 
Voiced by: David Cross
  • Became Their Own Antithesis: Jekyll's potion was designed to turn someone into the worst one can be, Jim being what is left of John without his charm and wit.
  • Jekyll & Hyde: Jim's the Hyde to John's Jekyll
  • Take That!: Big one towards Jim Belushi and how unpopular he is compared to his brother John. You can't be more obvious about insulting Jim Belushi than to directly insinuate that he's an immoral opposite to John who isn't half as witty and amusing.
  • Toilet Humour: Jim pees in a jar due to being too lazy to go to the restroom and later tries to do a reenactment of a scene from The Blues Brothers using jars of pee for no reason.
  • The Unwitting Comedian: In a rare non-tragic take on the trope, everything John Belushi does, no matter how gross or unsightly he behaves is considered funny due to his charisma. The opposite can be said of Jim.

    Dom Deluise 
Voiced by: Mark Rivers

Played by: Ken Jeong
  • Asian Buck Teeth: His face is a racist caricature of Asians, including buck teeth.
  • Fantastic Racism: Hyralius actively mocks Asians with racist stereotypes in both how he dresses and the jokes he tells as he destroys everything around him.
  • Kaiju: He's a take-off of your typical giant Japanese movie monster.
