The Professor Morlock Christmas Special

Previous | Home | Next

Perhaps the meost successful "Morlock" spin-off was “The Professor Morlock Christmas Special,” in which Morlock (Jesse Merlin) is surprised on Christmas Eve by a group of carolers. He proceeds to torture them and perform experiments on them until they wind up either dead or horribly mutilated.

The special continues to be a Yuletide staple.

An unforgettable highlight of "The Professor Morlock Christmas Special" came at the end when David Bowie joined Morlock to sing "The Little Drummer Boy" as the people the professor had mutilated and tortured throughout the special slowly died in agony behind them.
