Spider-Woman, "Dracula's Revenge"

HOLY HANNA, HALLOWEEN IS A WEEK FROM TONIGHT! We only have that long to get our Halloween on. "The clock is ticking--it's almost time!"

Today I present an episode of the short-lived animated series Spider-Woman, which aired for one season on ABC's Saturday Morning schedule starting in the fall of 1979. In this episode, Spider-Woman faces off against Dracula himself (a major Marvel Comics villain in the 70s), who has been freed from his tomb by dimwitted villagers. Dracula exacts his titular revenge by turning people into vampires--NOT by biting them, but by shooting lasers from his fingers.

Wait, it gets better.

Later, the Wolfman appears and turns people into werewolves--by shooting lasers from his eyes.

Wait, it gets better.

Frankenstein's monster also appears and turns people into monsters just like him--by shooting lasers from his neck bolts.

It doesn't get better than that!

The episode is as ridiculous as it sounds, and that makes it well worth the 20 minutes. Enjoy!
