The Frankenstein character can refer to Frankenstein the mad scientist or Frankenstein's creation the monster. The name and characters were created by Mary Shelley, one of the first women writers of science fiction and horror, in 1818. Frank N. Stein is a play on the name often used to make the monster character more personable and separate him from the scientist. Several roadside attractions, cafes, and on screen references have all utilized this shorter name in order to avoid any copyright issues with Shelley's work specifically, but to take inspiration from it by using an original depiction of the monster, now a commonly known horror character.
Creative House Productions Inc. originated in 1964 and was a design and manufacturing company based in Chicago, Illinois.
