- This was originally intended as a vehicle for Bob Hope. After the huge success of _Bud Abbott and Lou Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948)_ , Universal-International wanted another thrill comedy with Bud Abbott and Lou Costello so the script was rewritten for them.
- Universal-International wanted to ride on the success of ...Meet Frankenstein by pairing Bud and Lou with the actor who had played the original Frankenstein's monster, Boris Karloff. The role played by Karloff was originally written for a woman.
