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