THE PLOT:

It's just your every day series about your every day American family. You have the Father figure who is the Frankenstein monster with a kinder gentler brain, you have the dedicated housewife who is a vampire, there's the wise old grandfather whose also Count Dracula, the overactive son that's also a werewolf and the niece who is just the niece.

These are the adventure of the monster I mean Munster family and how Herman tries to keep a normal family environment in a world that freaks out at the very look at his face.

ZEDD'S OPINION:

I've always been a fan of the show ever since I saw it re-run form when I was just a kid. The clever dialog, the character interaction. The comedy timing between Fred Gwynne and Al Lewis. Let's face it, one of the best shows on TV but the western obsessed viewers didn't know what they had and it had a mere two season run. That's a crime, but it's history. 10 STARS.

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

It doesn't take a genius to know that this is a great show and should be recognized the world over as a great show and I agree that the viewers of the time period didn't know what they had and were too high or too stuff shirt to realize the brilliance that is the Munsters. 10 STARS as well.
