Every Friday I will be posting here an excerpt from my book, the Horror Crossover Encyclopedia.  These excerpts will be entries from the book featuring some of my favorite series, often series you might not expect to find in a book about horror crossovers.


Release Date: June 15, 1953 (Contemporary Setting)

Series: Three Stooges

Horror Crosses: Doctor Jekyll and Mister Hyde

The Story: The Stooges are detectives who are hired to rescue a girl who has been kidnapped by Dr. Jekyll. Jekyll plans on putting the girl’s brain into the body of a gorilla because science.

Notes: This story is clearly contemporary based on the appearance of modern technology like phone and radio and mentions of how the young people talk in the 1950s. It’s unclear if this could be the original mad scientist or another of the family. Sure, Jekyll died in LOEG, which took place in 1888, but our beloved monsters of the Horror Universe have a tendency to not stay dead. Interestingly, in this short, Mr. Hyde is Jekyll’s assistant. Jekyll doesn’t transform in this film.
