here's a clip from the Colgate Comedy Hour. when I was a kid I always wondered why the boys never met the Creature or some of the other sci-fi monsters. they did meet most of Universal's classic monsters. it seemed a natural for me to have them meet up the most famous "new" monster.
a kid wouldn't know why A&C were now on television, instead of making their movies like usual. the market was saturated. and the classic monsters had been around for years before they made comedies- Universal had milked them dry. the Creature being relatively new had a few movies to make first. this clip showed up on many PD tapes back in the day, it was a nice surprise to see.
