Dr. Cadaverino - Zany late night huckster of horror who hosted Nightmare Theater in Milwaukee on station WITI-TV from 1964-1977.

Dr. Cadaverino (played by Jack DuBlon) thought everybody was "Stupid!" including his guests, and the actors and directors of the movies he showed on the program but in particular Igor, the Doctor's headless assistant (Roger Cotey) who reaped such nicknames as "El Creepo" and "Dumbhead".

The show's main attraction were the typical schlock horror classics like Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954), The Unearthly (1957), and the mandatory Frankenstein, Wolfman, and Dracula movies.
