|Frankenstein's Monster-- in particular, Universal Studios version, first played by Boris Karloff in make-up by Jack Pierce-- has become one of the most recognizable icons in the world. The monster and his doppelgangers have made more comic-book appearances than I can count. Archie has met Frankenfolk a few times, including this Karloff-like butler from Archie #125.. Since Abbott and Costello met the licensed Universal Studios creature in the movies, it's not surprising that their Charlton Comics incarnations would likewise have encountered some version of the character.
Thanks to Fred Hembeck for the Archie Comics information.
