Storyline

Since none of Marylin's suitors ever get past the front door, Grandpa decides to turn a frog into her own personal prince. A nearsighted one at that, to compensate for her 'plain looks'. When the rest of the family is out to the drive-in, Marylin accidentally locks herself in her room. A young man passing by mistakingly thinks she is being held prisoner. The rest of the family assume the young man is the frog, turned into a prince, and promptly tie him up in the basement while getting Marylin's black wedding gown ready. Written by The TV Archaeologist

A Prince will come.
1 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't recall The Munsters. I must have watched them.

I tuned into this episode to see Don Edmonds, who just died.

He played a student who happened upon the house as grandpa (Al Lewis) was trying to turn a frog into a Prince for Marilyn (Pat Priest), as they saw no hope of her ever finding anyone on her own as ugly as she was. In fact, she was extremely beautiful, and it was the rest of the family that was ugly.

Edmonds did a great job and the whole show was just hilarious.

I think I will tune into some more episodes just to see how crazy it can get.
