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

I was intruduced to the original munsters show when i was young and loved it, when this came along and finally reached this country (dont ask me what year!) i watched a few episodes but to be honest i didnt like them, initially the signs were good in my eyes but after 20 odd minutes of two episodes i went back to watching the original series and im glad i did, even the movie spin off of the original series was better. Just didnt feel like the original to me guess you cant improve on what was perfect to start with :)
