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.

Doubtful It Can Be Enjoyed If You're A Fan Of The Original Series
Being a fan of the original 1960's series, I could not find it in my heart
to praise The Munsters Today.
I guess you can't recreate the magic no matter how hard you try. A good
analogy is to think of an artist's painting. An artist can paint a
picture but it's doubtful he could paint the same picture again just as
The actors did try their best to do a good job and there were a couple of
good episodes. Maybe it can be enjoyed if you're a youngster who has never
viewed the original but for me, it just couldn't compare.
