Fangtastic Fact of the Week #212
As per tradition, here's a Ghoul School-themed fun fact on the Monday before Halloween!
Winnie the Werewolf's name is a potential reference to the original 1941 horror film The Wolfman, where one of the characters' names was Guinevere (Gwen) Conliffe. Guinevere was a name that was often shortened to Winnie back in the the early 1900s.
Additionally, Scooby-Doo and the Ghoul School did not air until several months after Winnie's voice actress, Marilyn Schreffler, has already died of cancer.
Hope you all have a fangtastic Halloween!!! :)

Gwen Conliffe is the character name. The actress who played her in the 1941 film is named Evelyn Ankers.
