Eddie writes a school paper about his parents and life around the Munster home. His teacher and principal think what he has written is the product of an overactive imagination, until they head over ...
Widower Sheriff Andy and his son Opie live with Andy's Aunt Bee in Mayberry NC. With virtually no crimes to solve, most of Andy's time is spent philosophizing and calming down his cousin Deputy Barney.
The Munsters are a weird but honest family. Herman (the father) is Frankenstein's monster. Lily (his wife) and Grandpa (her father) are vampires. Eddie (their little son) is a werewolf. Marilyn (their niece) is the only normal one (that is the ugly duck of the family). Written by

Beverley Owen, who played Marilyn Munster in the first 13 episodes, is a natural brunette. She wore a wig, and her hairline was often covered up by a headband. Pat Priest, who played Marilyn for the remainder of the series, is a natural blond, so that is her natural hair. See more »

Grandpa, if you want the ketchup, just say "Please pass the ketchup", not "Shoot me the plasma!"

I've said it before and no doubt I'll say it again ..... the old shows are STILL the best.
The 1960s was the golden era of sitcoms and "The Munsters" was near the top of the list.
One of my favorite episodes was the one where Herman and the gang were accidentally selected - sight unseen - by a national magazine to appear on its front cover as the "Average American Family". The fun started when the people from the mag arrived at Mockingbird Lane.
There were so many great lines in this series... like the time Herman smashes his fist through the kitchen window to grab a handful of tangled vines from their over grown garden. He proudly presents them to Lily with the words "Lovely weeds for a lovely lady" !
Television hit the skids in the 1980s. Thank God for videos and DVD .
