Synopsis


Those creepy-but-lovable residents of 1313 Mockingbird Lane are on deck for 38 hilarious half-hours during season one of The Munsters. Seen throughout the season are Fred Gwynne as Herman Munster, a softhearted replica of the Frankenstein monster; Yvonne de Carlo as Herman's voluptuously vampirish wife, Lily; Al Lewis as Grandpa Munster, a 350-year-old Dracula clone who spends most of his time cooking up mischief in his laboratory; and Butch Patrick as Herman and Lily's young son, Eddie, a budding werewolf. During the season's first 13 episodes, Beverly Owen appears as the Munsters' beautiful niece Marilyn, the only normal-looking member of the family (though she thinks she's a homely freak). Thereafter, and throughout the rest of the series' run, Pat Priest is seen as Marilyn. Some of the season's funniest entries include "Pink's Pique," in which the gas company is in for quite a shock when they accidentally build a pipeline in the Munsters' dungeon -- er, basement; "Low-Cal Munster," featuring Paul Lynde as a nearsighted doctor who puts Herman on a diet (and who, fortunately for his own sanity, can't see what Herman really looks like!); "Autumn Croakus," wherein Grandpa's nearly four-century lifespan may come to an end at the hands of a murderous widow; "Herman the Great," with Herman becoming a pro wrestler to pay for Eddie's education; "Eddie's Nickname," featuring a magical milk shake which, thanks to Grandpa's bungling, grows a thick beard; "Far Out Munsters," a spoof of "bizarre" '60s rock & roll groups featuring future softcore film producer Zalman King and The Standells; and "Herman the Rookie," the one in which Herman gets a tryout with the Los Angeles Dodgers as manager Leo Durocher and former football star Elroy "Crazylegs" Hirsch look on with mouths agape. Two of the more fascinating first-season Munsters episodes are "Love Comes to Mockingbird Heights," featuring a cameo appearance by another of Universal's copyrighted monsters, the Creature from the Black Lagoon (aka the Munsters' "Cousin Gilbert"); and "Come Back Little Googie," guest starring child actor Bill Mumy, who had been the series producers' first choice for the role of Eddie Munster -- but whose mother did not like the idea of subjecting her boy to a daily two-hour makeup session. ~ Hal Erickson

    I loved getting so much Munsters on one DVD. I originally was just looking for a copy of Munster, Go Home when I came across this. I had totally forgotten about The Munster's Revenge. So that was a nice bonus to see them reunite years later for that. I also liked that they included both Black & White and the color version of the episode Family Portrait.

    Not Gruesome, but Fun

    I used to watch this on Nick at Nite as a kid... I loved this and all the other old shows like Bewitched, I Love Lucy, Gilligan's Island, The Brady Bunch, The Wonder Years, Happy Days. They have this innocence ingrained that really can't be matched by today's shows.

    A great family friendly series with an average nuclear aged family comprised of "monsters". The scenarios this family gets in to due to misunderstandings are hilarious and still fun to watch decades after the series ended.

    There are so many scary movies out there, but these shows make the grandkids laugh and helps them realize that they can laugh at these monsters and not be scared. A real counter balance to the fears from the scary movies.

    Great First season of the Munster, you wait till you see the 15 minute pilot colorized episode you would think you were watching The Out of Towners with Jack Lemmon. It is a must have for every TV comedy viewer.

    The Munsters Season One is classic goofy comedy that ruled family television for years. The story lines are amusing, the characters lovable, and it safe for everyone in the family to watch.
