(today's zomby) ZOMBY VS. FRANKENSTEIN... and it's not nearly as exciting as you think.

But just so you won't feel cheated, here's some real Frankenstein action!

(from l to right) Jackson Beck; Peter Fernandez

Two of the all-time greats in the voiceover business were Jackson Beck (1912-2004) and Peter Fernandez (1927-2010). Beck you probably know as the voice of Bluto in dozens and dozens of Popeye cartoons from the 1940s to the 1960s, but he had lots of other voice gigs, too, from Woody Allen's Take the Money and Run to the 1980s G.I. Joe cartoons and innumerable Little Caesar's pizza commercials. And Fernandez? Well, out of his many credits, you probably know him best as the title character on Speed Racer. Both Beck and Fernandez had diverse and varied careers which spanned decades, and in the year or Our Lord 1970 A.D., they teamed up to record an audio version of Frankenstein. Beck narrates, while Fernandez plays the tragic doctor. It's a fascinating little curio, and if you have half an hour to spare, it's well worth your time. Enjoy...
