Later, a rock group manager sees in the paper that the Munsters' house is perfect as a shelter for The Standells, the rock group. The manager goes to visit the Munsters and offers them $1,500 dollars to rent the house for one week.

However, so much elegance won't fit with the family taste and quickly leave the hotel and return home. That night, they find that The Standells are having a party with a few guests, kind of marginal and strange.

The Munsters rent out their house and then want to renege only to find the renters are throwing a party .
28 October 2006 | by holloway99See all my reviews

Far out Munsters is a fun episode and is one of the best of the bunch .When the Munsters decide to rent out the mansion at 1313 mockingbird lane you just don't know what to expect !The renters turn out to be a rock & roll band . The mix of rock & rollers , of that era , and The Munsters works well and makes for some interesting scenes . When The Munsters return home (after deciding not to stay at the hotel) they find the band has thrown a party . Now , you just know that The Munsters will only add life to this party . The Standells are excellent , Herman's poetry was a howler , and when Lilly performs for the crowd we lost it . Al Lewis as Grandpa is his usual superb self , with a couple of trick gags , and Eddie Munster has some funny banter. Beautiful Pat Priest was and always will be the best Marilyn . Nothing will ever be like The Munsters and Far Out Munsters is a good snippet of the essence of why they will live forever in T.V. Land .
