Genealogy Blogging Beat – Saturday, 24 September 2016

Sept 24, 1964. “The Munsters” was a half-hour sitcom about an unusual family who thought they were ordinary. Each family member resembled a different type of monster: Herman Munster (Fred Gwynne) was Frankenstein’s monster; Lily, his wife (Yvonne DeCarlo), and Grandpa, her father (Al Lewis), were vampires; and his son, Eddie (Butch Patrick), was a werewolf. Only their niece, Marilyn (Beverly Owen and Pat Priest), looked normal, and they considered her the unattractive family member. Most of the show’s laughs came from the family’s interactions with outsiders. The last telecast was on Sept 1, 1966.
