Bobby "Boris" Pickett

Mr. Halloween, Bobby Pickett, played both the King of Mars and Astrologer, but he will forever be remembered for "The Monster Mash".

Since it's release in 1962 when song became the number one hit in eight weeks, Bobby "Boris" Pickett was the only active performer whose original recording reached "the top 100" on three different occasions. Over the years Monster Mash has been heard on every top 40 and oldies station on the planet and such popular TV shows as the Simpsons, Cheers, Roseanne, Doogie Howser and CNN, not to mention its use in several movies including "Halloween III" and Sweetheart's Dance." Its co-creator and vocalist, Bobby "Boris"Pickett, has been hailed as the Guy Lombardo of Halloween and Monster Mash has become the national anthem of this fun holiday.
