The original 1967 SHRIMPENSTEIN 45 rpm record with the opening theme song on the Monstrous "A" side and on the Crazy "B" side the incredibly "not" PC KARATE MAN, both sung by Dr. Von Schtick ( Gene Moss ) and the Tijuana Bats.

SHRIMPENSTEIN was kids Saturday morning "B" monster movie TV show like ELVIRA that played on KHJ channel 9 in Los Angeles from 1967 to 1968. It featured Shrimpenstein, a miniature Frankenstein monster puppet

This is the opening theme sung by Dr. Von Schtick (Gene Moss in a bad Boris Karloff imitation) and the Tijuana Bats. Played on 6 shows: 10-25-09,. Shrimpenstein! was an LA kid's show from 1965-67, starring Gene Moss as mad scientist Dr. Rudolph von Schtick, where along with Jim Thurman they did thier puppeteering best to keep kids in the mid-1960's entertained. KHJ-Channel 9 was his station home and was connected to KHJ Boss Radio. From 1965-1967, Monday through Friday at 5:00pm the show would transform every kid's living room into a mad monster castle, complete with an iron maiden for a front door.

The hosts were Gene Moss (Dr. Von Schtick) and Jim Thurman (voices). Shrimpenstein was a miniature Frankenstein monster (a ventriloquist dummy who was "created" when jellybeans were thrown into the Monster Machine - no, I did not make this up). The show was in color, and I still have my Shrimpenstein Value stamps and a 45 rpm record of the opening theme sung by Gene Moss in a bad Boris Karloff imitation. Moss and Thurman wrote the Roger Ramjet cartoons and did advertising campaigns, mostly for radio. Shrimpenstein was funny and irreverent which probably led to its downfall, as they made fun of the sponsors (McDonalds) and the cartoons on the show (the very limited animation Marvel superheroes). We made audio tapes but I have no idea where they are today.

Shrimpenstein was a miniature Frankenstein's monster-a hand puppet controlled by Moss, who appeared on camera as the mad scientist Dr. Rudolph Von Schtick, whose laboratory was in a medieval castle. They included Claus (only the arm and hand of a big purple monster appeared on camera), It (just a roaring and chomping sound effect of a monster who would eat any visitors to the castle), Wilfred the Wolf (just a gnarly hand poking out of a box) and the swinging Tijuana Bats (hand puppets that did record parodies). Although "Shrimpenstein" started out with Moss and Thurman bantering between the two cartoons that aired during the half hour, the in-studio comedy became so popular that the cartoons were dropped. Hosting the show was a natural for Moss, who a few years earlier had written and sung the songs on a novelty album called "Dracula's Greatest Hits.

Whipped Cream & Other Delights is a 1965 album by Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass, called "Herb Alpert's Tijuana Brass" for this album, released on A&M Records. It is the band's fourth full album and arguably their most popular release.
