Storyline

This is supposed to be the exact same Munster family as in the '60s series "The Munsters". One of Grandpa's experiments went awry, and put the Munsters into suspended animation for 20 years. Upon awakening in the '80s, they experience the same comic situations since they don't realize that they aren't "normal". Dad Herman resembles the Frankenstein monster, Mom Lily and Grandpa are vampires, son Eddie is a werewolf, and only beautiful Marilyn looks like a human. Written by Marty McKee <mmckee@wkio.com>

The first and thus far only version of "The Munsters" to feature lyrics with the memorable theme song. The lyrics are as follows; "We're the Munsters. We're the Munsters. We went to sleep twenty years ago, and we woke up with a brand new show. We're the Munsters. We're the Munsters... Today." See more »

Munsters today doesn't measure up.Yet surpasses
17 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I think some people are being way too harsh on the Munsters Today.Sure,this 80s rehash of the original classic 60s series doesn't measure up. But I did find this series to be a lot more amusing and entertaining than most of the lame situation comedies of the 80s that somehow managed to get themselves on a major network.Howard Morton's interpretation of Grandpa at times was really quite hilarious.And there is a touching moment when John Shuck's Herman confesses to his family that he never made it passed the fourth grade.I know this contradicts the original premise of Fred Gwynne's Herman attending Heidelburg University(in three different jars).But a story had to be told. So let's not hate Munsters Today for being what it's not(THE ORIGINAL).Let's praise it for what it is.A funny show that surpasses the the unfunny shows of the time in which it was made.
