Quoted from spfxted:
I have been through this a few times. You have to secure licensing if the monster characters have the LIKENESS of Boris Karloff, Bela Lugosi, etc. MANY companies make Frankenstein, Dracula, Bride of Frankenstein, Wolfman, Mummy, etc stuff without looking exactly like the actors.
PS: Monster Bash monsters do not look like the actors....
I thought MB was based on a license with Universal. I do think they could get negotiate another license.
