Grizelda the Ghastly Gourmet

Yes, my pretties!  The parade of Halloween paraphernalia persists (as well as more artfully authored alliterations)!   Today, I want to share with you a clip from an old Canadian children's show that has become a cult classic - The Hilarious House of Frightenstein.  I loved loved loved this show when I was a child - which maybe explains quite a lot.  Anyway...I want to share with you a clip of my favourite character, Grizelda the Ghastly Gourmet.   Enjoy!

  1. I would've been so scared of Grizelda as a kid. She is ghastly indeed, cooking up mess in a pot. I wasn't into the scary business as a kid, even though I loved Halloween. The treats, anyway.

  2. I was really into monsters and witches as a kid. But there was a lot of it in the culture back then: Scooby Doo and the Mystery Gang, The Munsters, Casper the Friendly Ghost, even Sesame Street had a Count and monsters!

  3. Where was Grizelda when I was a kid? She's fantastic. She reminds me of my second grade teacher. I'm not kidding.
