Frankenstein's Birth

Frankenstein’s monster was created in the laboratory of scientist Victor Frankenstein. His faithful, hump backed assistant is Igor. The two made several attempts to bring the creature to life. Finally, on January 1, 1818 , Victor Frankenstein found success. The monster rose from the gurney in the laboratory where he was born.

At birth, Frankenstein displays a gentle and intelligent personality. However, the monster soon becomes a far more menacing character. Therefore, if you see him… RUN!! You’re not alone. His scary, monstrous appearance causes everyone to run. Obviously, there is no “to know him is to love him”. 

Frankenstein's Creation

Frankenstein's a Good Monster!, RIght?

Do you like scary Monsters? If so, you’re gonna just love Frankenstein. After all, Frankenstein’s Monster was created with good intentions. Indeed, the goal was to create this being for scientific research and the good of humanity. It backfires miserably. Scientist Victor Frankenstein and Igor create this creature from a collection of body parts from dead people. Using electricity, the monster now walks among us.  

Originally, the monster was intelligent, and gentle. Yet, as everyone can see, he is truly hideous. To make matters worse, the monster is an intimidating 8 feet tall. Certainly, that’s enough to scare anyone. So, it’s no wonder, he is feared, misunderstood, and mistreated by everyone. This includes his creator. Victor Frankenstein attempted to destroy the monster. The monster ultimately goes on to kill his creator. 


The Novel Origin of Frankenstein's Monster

The original horror novel is titled “Frankenstein or the Modern Prometheus”. It is written by Mary Shelley. It was published in 1818. There are many movies, television programs, and cartoons of Frankenstein.

Perhaps the most memorable show, was the Tv comedy series The Munsters.  It aired 1964-1966. The Munsters featured  Herman Munster. Herman is a likable, not too brilliant Frankenstein character. He was played by actor Fred Gwynne.

There are many versions of Frankenstein since the original book was published. In the original story, the monster did not have a name. Rather, it was referred to as “Frankenstein’s Monster”. Subsequently, over the years the monster came to be known as “Frankenstein”. As you know, this is the last name of his creator.  

Did You Know? Most people watch Frankenstein movies and programs in October. Without a doubt, Halloween is Frankenstein’s favorite holiday.

Speaking of the Monster’s favorite day, don’t miss Frankenstein Friday.
