The Munsters season 1


This is it: the first season of the immortal television show about The Munsters. They’re a family of monsters and their struggles in the normal world. The cast includes Fred Gwynne as patriarch Herman Munster, a dense yet loveable Frankenstein look-alike. Yvonne DeCarlo is his gorgeously gothic wife Lily. Butch Patrick is their widow-peaked son Eddie. And Al Lewis as Grandpa Munster. With their “normal” niece Marilyn, of course.
