Igor is a recurring set of characters in Terry Pratchett's Discworld series of novels. They are members of a clan of servants from the region of Ãœberwald, all of which are named Igor. The Igors are based partially upon Mary Shelley's Frankenstein's Monster, and partially upon the hunchbacked assistants in Universal and Hammer's film versions.
Igor Manic or Ygor is the traditional stock character or clichÃ© hunch-backed lab assistant to the mad scientist, familiar from many horror movies and horror movie parodies. He is most closely associated with the Frankenstein films.
Igor is a fictional hunchbacked lab assistant who appears in the film The Nightmare Before Christmas, and the video game spinoffs.
