William E. Greene,
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

'Grandpa' Vladimir Dracula:
Yes it can, and it is! But it's no problem, I can have it fixed in a jiffy.
Jiffy? You can not fix what happened, we have just taken a twenty-two year nap!

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 beautiful picture but it's doubtful he could paint the same picture again just as good.
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.
