Best Answer

Although we hear Mel Brooks' voice in this film, he never appears onscreen. The reason? He wasn't allowed! Per Mel, Gene Wilder agreed to play Dr. Frankenstein only if he (Mel) didn't appear in the movie. When asked why, Gene explained that he didn't want to be "constantly winking at the audience" (i.e. "breaking the fourth wall")...something that Mel has a huge tendency towards when he acts.

Incidentally, Mel had been planning to play the character that he now admits Marty Feldman was "born to play": Igor.
