Introducing Svengoolie, MeTV’s expert on classic monsters who is here to rank their levels of fear and danger. In an exclusive video interview with TV Insider, Svengoolie, played by Rich Koz, shares his insights just in time for the spooky month leading up to Halloween.
When asked which monster he would be most afraid of if trapped in a room with the Mummy, the Wolf Man, Dracula, Frankenstein, and Gill-Man, Svengoolie quickly chooses the Wolf Man. His reasoning? The wolf man’s wild and unpredictable nature, devoid of logic, makes him the most terrifying. Next on the list is Dracula, with his hypnotic power and the inability to fight him off before he drains his victims.
However, Svengoolie dismisses the Mummy as a threat, jokingly remarking that she is easily outrun even with her slow leg dragging. As for Gill-Man and Frankenstein, Svengoolie believes they have their weaknesses. Gill-Man can be easily overcome as long as you keep him out of the water, while Frankenstein becomes feeble if he’s away from his source of power for too long. Svengoolie even suggests befriending Frankenstein’s monster.
