Meet Frank!

Dancing Frankenstein

One of my clients walked in with Frank under her arm and says... "He's lost his groove. He just stands there, but he used to sing and dance."

She asked that if I fixed him, that I take pictures of him on the operating table.

Even before he was fixed, my clients loved him and some had their pictures taken with him. I keep him by the front door.  He's my greeter.

Before he was fixed, he only had his jaw working, so he made a clicking sound.  He has a motion detector. I had him facing the parking lot.  I could tell when someone pulled up in front.  He'd start clicking.

Now that he is repaired,  his head moves, and his hips move, and he sings "Thriller", "Monster Mash", and "Born To Be Wild".

He would normally stand on a porch at Halloween. And his motion detector would turn him on as people would approach, and he'd start to groove.

The white thing on his chest is the speaker.  The speaker wire was severed one time when he was compacted to put away for storage.

And the moving head and swinging hips come from little motors that need O-rings...basically little rubber bands.  They had dried out and broke.

But in a stoke of good fortune, those O-rings are remarkably similar to the rubber belts that spin the disks around in a computer DVD drive.  So from my dead DVD to Frank's dead neck and hips!  Seems perfectly ghoulish.
