While tinkering with his crime computer one night, he managed to bring the wax statues of Dracula, the Wolfman and the Frankenstein monster to life. The monsters used their unique skills to help Walt solve crimes and mysteries.

A movie with the same title and similar characters was made in 1987, but in the film the monsters were the bad guys.
