Baron Clovis was the character name of Charles Addams when at age 19, he replaced Abner Kadaver as host of a horror show. The show did not last long and Addams moved on to be a weatherman in another city. Abner, still upset about his replacement hired a button man named “Sizzler” Sitzes to kill Addams. Sitzes killed Charles in a hit and run. Kadaver then killed Sitzes and dressed his skeletal remains up like Baron Clovis to be part of his “House of Terror” a fun house that was part of a Halloween fair.
