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

This theatrical film was not a great success at the box office, prompting Paramount, which had been contemplating a theatrical version of Get Smart (1965), to cancel that and instead spread as a three-part serial "A Man Called Smart". See more »
Towards the end of the film, as Herman is racing towards the oil slick near the finish line, the Drag-U-La car begins to spin out before the car ever reaches the oil slick. By the time the car reaches the oil, it is already sideways and the rear wheels hitting it are used to propel oil into the air. See more »
Can I get you a bite of breakfast, governor?
Oh, thank you very much, Cruikshank, eh, but I am not a governor. I never even made Alderman.
I'm a simple man, a man of the people. You may call me: Lord.

I must confess that I have never seen an episode of the television series "The Munsters" - that's what happens when you grow up in Canada where Canadian content is forced on its citizens, which leaves less chance for American series to air. Anyway, I knew a little about the show before watching this movie, and there's one problem this movie has right from the start - it is filmed in color, and the make-up on the various Munster characters looks very phony when it was probably not on the black and white TV show. But that's a minor quibble compared to the big problem of the movie, and that is that it's not funny at all. Instead of aiming at a wide audience, the mentality of the script is aimed at young children. While young children might laugh at some of the childish antics here, this adult sat through the movie stone faced. The basic idea of the movie - the Munsters encountering Brits - had a lot of promise, but the execution is sorely lacking. And it doesn't encourage me to look online for episodes of the television show.
