Boris Karloff does Monster Mash

For years I’d heard that Boris Karloff had done his own version of Bobby “Boris” pickett’s “Monster Mash”. I’d heard it was on Dick Clarke’s American Bandstand.

Evidently I heard wrong. This site says it was on the prime-time ABC show Shindig, and that the tape, except for a few brief snippets, has been lost. But he’s “recreated” a version of the way it might have looked. It’s pretty good.

Unfortunately, it’s not Karloff singing – it’s Pickett.

this one purports to be Karloff singing it:

Someone should sync those.

I love the internet.
