The Munsters

CBS 1964

At 1313 Mockingbird Lane, Mockingbird Heights, lived one of America's strangest sitcom families, The Munsters. Strangest looking, that is, for beneath Herman's Frankensteinian facial features, Lily's vampiric visage, Grandpa's Dracula countenance and Eddie's Wolfman looks, lurked possibly the sweetest and most sensitive sitcom family ever to grace the small-screen. This, of course, was the nub of the series: that a family so weird could overcome the everyday problems of modern living - and the fact that people ran away from them, screaming - by their generosity, gentleness and belief in traditional American values.

The Munsters - the other 60s TV horror family besides The Addams Family. Althought I like both I must say I like The Munsters a little bit more. Fred Gwynne did an amazing job. Call be crazy but I think Herman Munster is one of the most lovable characters ever done. He´s like a 7 foot, 300 lbs child. The whole show is so enjoyable to watch. Another true classic.
