Trivia

  • The surname of Vic Frankenstein is an obvious allusion to the classic horror icon Frankenstein.
  • Portions of this book (the scenes in which characters grow to huge sizes) are similar to the books Monster Blood and Beware of the Purple Peanut Butter.
    • One storyline from Beware of the Purple Peanut Butter is incredibly similar to the storyline of Frankenstein's Dog; in both stories the main character is forbidden from going into a basement, decides to enter anyways, consumes food that is in there, and then begins to grow to giant sizes as a result.
  • The title and cover could be viewed as misleading because Poochie is not the true villain of the story. The dog is more of a plot device than an actual villain.
  • Like Jekyll and Heidi, this story is also about a scientist who has the same name as a scientist from a fictional story.
