The Munsters Are Back and Here for Christmas!
1 March 2018 | by SylviastelSee all my reviews

I don't recall the previous Munsters film with a new cast. Ann Magnuson and Sam McMurray played Herman and Lily Munster. They still live in the gothic mansion with Lily's father, Grandpa; cousin, Marilyn; and son Eddy. The television movie is about Eddy getting the Christmas spirit. Throw in Santa Claus and Grandpa's spell and two mischievous elves looking for Christmas Eve off. The movie is lighthearted and family fun. I always enjoyed the Munsters more than the Addams family perhaps they were always lighter in mood and spirit.
