Storyline

Eddie comes up with a great idea for the family: to camp at the woods. Everybody agrees to spent a few days with nature. Marilyn will stay at home because she has to study, and Lily asks her for to look after Spot. Everything is set in the car, and The Munsters are on their way to the wood. But when they're about to arrive, the rangers at the inspection hut see that the family looks very suspicious, because they've heard by radio about a group of eccentric people causing problems. The family settles near the lake, in a very nice spot, where Herman could fish with Eddie. Grandpa starts to behave in a strange way. He feels so bad when Herman begins to hammer a stick at the ground to set up the tend, because that remembers him the way that vampires are killed. Later, Herman and Eddie are fishing at the lake. Herman won't catch anything fresh, but rather cooked, when he catches a pair of fried fishes from a camp in the other side of the lake, and even a fried chicken. At night, it will ...

Grandpa Gets Carried Away
16 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a memorable episode in which Grandpa turns into a wolf, is captured, and has to be bailed out by the family. To be honest, it wasn't as good as I had remembered it. It all starts when Eddie comes home from school and begs his dad to him on a camping trip for the weekend, since many of his classmates are doing the same. Herman says okay and he, Lily and Grandpa head out for the woods despite the idea of fresh air. Herman is dressed like "Fred R. Turbo," a character Johnny Carson used to do on The Tonight Show.

It doesn't get funny until Herman starts fishing. Then it gets better when the wolves start howling and Grandpa gets lonely for his "old friends." The next morning, the old wolf has disappeared. On the radio, Eddie hears that "local forest rangers have a captured a full- grown wolf....."

It was okay, but the episode wasn't a howl anymore.
