The Munsters Reviews & Ratings

A ghoulishly funny sitcom about a family of misfits residing at 1313 Mockingbird Lane. Patriarch Herman, whose green complexion and monstrous size led him to be mistaken for the missing link, was as good-hearted as he was simpleminded. His wife, Lily, resembled a vampire. The mad-scientist grandfather was a dead ringer for an aged Dracula. And the son, Eddie, looked like a wolf boy. Only a niece passed as `normal' looking. The cast reunited in 1981 for the NBC teleflick `The Munsters Revenge.

This is a wonderful show! Having monsters that think they are normal is a hoot! The show puts an unusual spin on everyday matters. Well worth watching!

The Munsters is a sitcom depicting the home life of a family of benign monsters starring Fred Gwynne as Frankenstein-type head-of-the-household Herman Munster, Yvonne De Carlo as his wife, Lily Munster, Al Lewis as Grandpa and Beverly Owen (later re-placed by Pat Priest) as their teenage niece, Butch Patrick as son Eddie Munster, and The Raven, voiced by Mel Blanc and Bob Hastings.

The series was a satire of both traditional monster movies and the wholesome family fare of the era, and was produced by the creators of Leave It to Beaver. It ran concurrently with the similarly macabre themed The Addams Family and achieved higher figures in the Nielsen ratings. It was cancelled after ratings dropped to a low due to the premiere of ABC's Batman, which was in color. The Munsters found a large audience in syndication. This popularity warranted a spin-off series, as well as several films, including one with a theatrical release.

Loved it!
