Herman discovers he's the new lord of Munster Hall in England. The family sails to Britain, where they receive a tepid welcome from Lady Effigy and Freddie Munster, who throws tantrums because he wasn't named Lord Munster. An on-board romance had blossomed between Marilyn and Roger, but on land Marilyn discovers Roger's family holds a longstanding grudge against the Munsters. Herman upholds the family honor in an auto race; he and Grandpa also unlock "the secret of Munster Hall." Written by

Towards the end of the movie, Herman (Fred Gwynne) and Grandpa (Al Lewis) are shouting for help. Herman says, "Call Batman," then adds, "Car 54, where are you?" Car 54, Where Are You? (1961) was the title of a 1961 comedy series that featured both Gwynne and Lewis. See more »
Freddie complains, "I'm Lord Munster, not HIM!" Lady Effigie explains that Freddie should have used the pronoun HE because "the objective pronoun always takes the nominative case". While she is right that Freddie should have used the pronoun HE, her explanation should have been, "When the predicate pronoun refers to the subject, the pronoun takes the nominative case". In fact, most pronouns in the predicate of a sentence are in the objective case, not the nominative case. See more »
If you are a fan of "The Munsters" television show, then you should love this movie. Seeing all the characters in color is an added treat, but what is a MAJOR disappointment is the recasting of Marilyn Munster. Why they did not leave Pat Priest in the role instead of an VERY untalented Deborah Watson is hard to understand. Terry Thomas almost steals the film with his hilarious brand of British humour, or humor as Freddie Munster.Sidenote here: It is always a treat for fans like myself to view a film like this, which was shot on the backlot of Universal Studios, and check the sets and try and remember what other films those sets were used in. The Moresby home was once in an episode of "Dragnet" (the one with the Lonely Hearts Club)!!
