Does this guy look familiar? I'd like to think that Boris Karloff would appreciate having his most famous character portrayed constantly holding a flower. フランケン (Franken) is a companion of 代物くん (Kaibutsu-Kun = Little Monster) who along with ドラキュラ (Dorakyura/Dracula) and オオカミ男 (Ookami-Otoko/Wolfman) fight against the forces of evil such as ミイラ男 (Miira-Otoko/mummy), キングコング (King Kong) or ガブロ (Gaburo)! (Click that link for a couple of YouTubes I'd posted earlier, or click Kaibutsu-Kun for an unembeddable view.)
Kaibutsu-kun was the creation of 藤子不二雄 (Fujiko Fujio), the penname of a manga writing duo formed by two Japanese manga artists. Their real names are 藤本 弘, Fujimoto Hiroshi, 1933-1996) and 安孫子 素雄, Abiko Motō, 1934- more famously known as the creators of Doraemon.
Fellow monster aficionado, DJ Mokugohan leant me this 45 from his collection so I could scan it for one and all. Very very cool stuff indeed!
For our Italian viewers...
