Lily Munster: Herman, this is the worst thing you've done since you bought us that mausoleum at the cemetery, and we couldn't move in because there were no kitchen privileges.
Herman Munster: How did I know it was a restricted community and they wouldn't take live people?

Marlon, er, Herman 'The Wild One'
29 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The title alone will lead to believe this episode is going to have some very funny sight gags, and it does has Herman turns into a drag racer with some very cool "wheels."

The first good sight was Herman dressed like Marlon Brando in "The Wild One." He's a dead- ringer for Brando, except for the face, of course. When a concerned Lily approaches him with "Herman, I wish you wouldn't do this," his answer is:

"I just can't, uh, fight it chick," he answers. "I, uh, gotta get out there and drag it with the gassers. Otherwise, I might blow my cool." He says this with a strong nasal tone and New York accent.

Later, a very cool dragster is built by Grandpa, complete with coffin and organ pipes. He calls it his "Drag-u-la."

Herman and his new dragster then do battle with Sandy Baylor's father, "Leadfoot" Baylor, a professional drag racer. "Sandy" was an obnoxious friend of Eddie's and was only in this one episode. Brian Corcoran, who played him, had some famous siblings as actors, such as Donna Corcoran, Kevin and Kelly Corcoran.

Henry Beckman, who played Sandy's dad, and was in one other Munster episode, was still acting as of 2002.

There's a great ending to this episode. Corny? Yes. Stupid? Yes.....but that's The Munsters....and you either love them or hate them. I love 'em, and have since in the mid '60s.
