Not lacking a sense of humor, Price starred in a number of comedic films as well, including several turns as the lascivious Dr. Goldfoot. He appeared multiple times as the villain Egghead on the 1960s Batman TV series, and he later voiced the self-caricature Vincent VanGhoul on the cartoon series The 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo (1985).
He abandoned films in the mid-1970s, going on to present cooking programs for television - he wrote "A Treasury of Great Recipes" (1965) with his second wife, Mary Grant - but had two final roles in The Whales of August (1987) and Edward Scissorhands (1990). He also recorded many Gothic horror short stories for the spoken-word label Caedmon Records and he was featured speaking a short poem at the end of Michael Jackson's hit single "Thriller".
Vincent Price died at age 82 of lung cancer and emphysema on October 25, 1993.
