Watch Mary Shelley's Frankenhole
- 2 Seasons
Mary Shelley's Frankenhole is a series regularly running on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim line of programs. It was created by Dino Stamatopoulos, who had previously created additional series for Adult Swim. Like his previous work, the series is filmed using stop motion animation techniques. This series deals with several characters originally created by the author Mary Shelley. The show deals with the legendary character Dr. Victor Frankenstein, who has completely mastered the techniques that result in immortality. He currently lives in an unnamed land in Eastern Europe with his wife and two children. While he and his wife have gained immortality, the two children have not and are significantly older than their parents in appearance. With all eternity to spend in the pursuit of science, Victor has perfected a technology he calls Frankenholes. Frankenholes are bridges through both time and space. Using Frankenholes, historical figures come to visit him for advice and genetic alterations. In one episode, Adolph Hitler travels to meet Dr. Frankenstein in an attempt to gain empathy for the people he has oppressed. The doctor usually takes on these requests as a challenge, and attempts to help the people with assistance from his immortal lab assistant, Professor Polidori. Despite these scientific challenges, Victor finds that immortality is not always what it is cracked up to be, and he faces competition from the local pharmacist, Dr. Jekyll, and the romantic advances of Count Dracula toward his wife. Due to the topics discussed, the show is rated TV-MA and is not recommended for younger viewers. One episode of the show has never been aired due to the language content. The show has run for two seasons and there has not been an official announcement if there will be a third.
