"Monster Squad" is a television series that aired on NBC from 1976-1977.  It stars Fred Grandy (pre "Love Boat") as Walt, a criminology student working as a night watchman in a wax museum. To pass the time, Walt builds a prototype "Crime Computer" in a mummy case near an exhibit of legendary monsters. When he plugs in his 'Crime Computer', "oscillating vibrations" bring to life the wax statues of Dracula, the Werewolf (who refers to himself in one episode as "Bruce W. Wolf," the "W" standing for "Were"), and Frankenstein (named "Frank N. Stien" in the opening credits). The monsters, wishing to make up for the misdeeds of their pasts, become superhero crimefighters who use their unique abilities to challenge and defeat various supervillains.

As the 20th century evolved, rational man turned to science to explain mythology that had pervaded for thousands of years. How could a man be mistaken for a vampire? How could someone appear to have been the victim of a vampire attack? Science, in time, came back with answers that may surprise you.Anemia
A million fancies strike you when you hear the name: Nosferatu!N O S F E R A T Udoes not die!What do you expect of the first showing of this great work?Aren't you afraid? - Men must die. But legend has it that a vampire, Nosferatu, 'der Untote' (the Undead), lives on men's blood! You want to see a symphony of horror? You may expect more. Be careful. Nosferatu is not just fun, not something to be taken lightly. Once more: beware.- Publicity for Nosferatu in the German magazine Buhne und Film, 1922
