Trivia

The title is based on an editorial in the September 21, 1897 edition of the "New York Sun" which included the famous reply "Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus". Francis Pharcellus Church wrote in reply to a little girl's question on the existence of Santa Claus which has been a part of holiday lore ever since. See more »

Quotes

Lily Munster: Oh Herman, You can't expect to be a big hero and save a boy's life every day. Normal people like us just don't have exciting adventures all the time.
Herman Munster: Well, my life is duller than most. The most exciting thing that happened to me before this was 20 years ago. When a man stopped me on the street and asked me if I was voting for Al Flanden.

The Psychologist Goes Crazy
5 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Often times, the best part of these old half-hour shows was the reaction everyday people had when they actually saw Herman Munster and his family face-to-face. That was the big moment here as a psychiatrist, played by the great comedy actor Harvey Korman, meets the Munsters.

After Herman bends the iron bars to free little Galen Stewart from them, and thus "saves his life," the little boy (about Eddie's age) and Herman are now pals. Since Herman has the mentality of a little kid, he's all excited to have a new pal to meet each day after work.

The story is Galen's parents not believing their son's tales of meeting the Munsters and the description he gives of them and their house. The boy is taken to a psychiatrist, who later - to prove the kid wrong - accompanies Galen to the Munster house. The results are predictable.....but always fun to watch.
