Groovie Goolies

Groovie Goolies was an animated television show that aired on CBS between 1970 and 1972.

It was a spinoff of Sabrina the Teenage Witch. Sabrina's cousins, the Groovie Goolies, all reside at Horrible Hall, a haunted boarding house for monsters. Heading the operation was the short-tempered Count Dracula.

The Groovie Goolies were:
Frankie: A Frankenstein's Monster who headed the Muscle-leum Gymnasium ("great for body building").
Wolfie: A hippie werewolf who supervised recreation, often getting on Dracula's nerves.
Hagatha: A plump witch who served as resident cook.
Bella La Ghostly: A vampiress switchboard operator.
Dr. Jekyll and Hyde: The two-headed resident doctor who often fought as to which one of them was Jekyll and/or Hyde.
Mummy: A mummy who worked as a T.V. announcer
Boneapart: A skittish skeleton in a Napoleon hat who had a tendency to go to pieces (literally!).
Ghoulihand: A giant, disembodied glove (no Irish brougue).
Batso and Ratso: Two fanged, impish brats with a penchant for playing mean practical jokes that often backfired.
Hauntleroy: A rotund, sissy kid in a sailor suit who was often the primary foil for Batso and Ratso's tricks.
Tiny: A diminutive, long-haired mummy (Mummy's cousin) with a high-pitched voice.
Missy: An enigmatic spook whose face was a large, single eye, and whose body was hidden by her long, pink hair.
