Bat Grampa

Spreading gloom is an optical bat
Here it looms, not a prop, but a matte
Once a guy in a cape,
He will try to escape
But meets doom when he's dropped and goes splat!

Dracula (Béla Lugosi) transforms into an animated bat in Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948). Title by batty David Cairns.
