Meet the Munsters; a family of… well… monsters! The head of the family is the Frankenstein-ish Herman and his wife, the vampire-like Lily. Their werewolf-ish son Eddie is the apple of their eye, while their beautiful, yet normal looking niece, Marilyn (whom the others pity due to her "un-Munsterlike" appearance ), still hopes to find a man that will overlook her shortcomings. Also living with the family is their Grandpa, who is also “bat-like,” and who is always tinkering in his basement lab, usually to bad results. Together the family must try to fit into with their otherwise normal neighborhood. Although they are not always successful, it usually winds up being resolved in a hilarious kind of way.
The series featured the distinguished and renowned movie actress Yvonne DeCarlo (Lily)[McLintock!, The Ten Commandments] and the popular TV actor Fred Gwynne (Herman)[Car 54, Where Are You?].
