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.

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 »
It is mentioned that Freddie Munster's father disowned him so the title "Lord Munster" would pass to Herman. In English peerage, a title passes onto the next in line of succession regardless of the previous holder's wishes. Only an Act of Parliament may remove an heir. Freddie's father could leave all the money and land to Herman, but the title would go to Freddie. See more »
A Long, Enjoyable, Full-Color Episode of the TV Show
Of course it would have been impossible for the Munsters to take a trip to England in a 25-minute TV episode. So it's fun to see it finally happen. I'm not the world's biggest Munster fan, but I've been watching the series ever since I was a little kid and I do love it (a wee bit). This, in particular, is a fun adventure, in which Herman inherits an English title and goes to the Sceptred Isle to claim it, even in spite of the wishes of his greedy cousins, who want the title for themselves. Naturally, this movie has the same kind of rim shot-based gags that highlight the show ("I thought he was made in Germany"), but it also has a great deal of fun and some gags are really quite funny, not to mention the drastic culture shock that takes place when the Munsters-- who aren't even normal Americans-- take Great Britain by storm. So if you like "The Munsters," you should go ahead and give "Munster, Go Home!" a try. You won't be disappointed.
