  • The New Scooby-Doo Mysteries - s01e02 - "Scooby's Peep-Hole Pandemonium" (1984)


  • Franklin Stein is clearly inspired by Frankenstein's Monster, but appears to be a different character, given that the real one was later seen in the series in the episode "A Halloween Hassle at Dracula's Castle", written by Paul Dini.
  • Additionally, at least three other versions of Frankenstein's Monster have appeared elsewhere in the Scooby-Doo franchise over the years, each with a highly different characterization. These are: the one from The New Scooby and Scrappy-Doo Show episode "Who's Minding the Monster"; the one from Scooby-Doo and the Ghoul School (identified as "Frankenteen Senior"); and the one from Scooby-Doo and the Reluctant Werewolf.
