Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
It's a retro-TV conundrum: The Addams Family or The Munsters? Both premiered in 1964, lasted two seasons, and were consigned to the TV graveyard within a week of each other. But while The Addams Family was more sophisticated and wickedly funny, The Munsters was much more kid friendly. Father Herman (Fred Gwynne) isn't a monster; he's just built that way. The childlike, Frankensteinian behemoth is oblivious to the fact that his mere appearance scares everyone silly. Herman got the show's biggest laughs by simply engaging in everyday paternal activities, such as playing baseball. What kid doesn't fantasize having a dad who could hit a baseball seven blocks, as Herman does in "Herman the Rookie" -- guest star Leo Durocher exclaims, "I don't know whether to sign him with the Dodgers or send him to Vietnam." The series, from the creators of Leave It to Beaver, puts a macabre spin on the traditional all-American sitcom family, with vampira mom Lily (Yvonne De Carlo), batty Grandpa (Al Lewis), and wolfboy Eddie (Butch Patrick). Also sharing the Munster home at 1313 Mockingbird Lane is beautiful niece Marilyn, whose normal appearance the family pities. This first season is a real scream, with such series benchmark episodes as "A Walk on the Mild Side," in which insomniac Herman's nighttime strolls terrorize the populace. Lending support throughout the season is a gallery of beloved TV faces, including Paul Lynde and Sid Melton ("Rock-a-Bye Munster"), Richard Deacon ("Pike's Pique"), Gavin MacLeod ("The Sleeping Cutie"), Harvey Korman ("Family Portrait"), Billy Mumy ("Come Back, Little Googie"), and Don Rickles ("Dance with Me, Herman"). The Munsters was not created to win Emmys, and it's nice to see that, thanks to DVD, less distinguished, but fondly remembered series such as this don't have to stay buried.

    THE MUNSTERS ARE A BALL!

    It's so refreshing to watch something that is just clean-cut fun and innocent humor...no nasty language, no indecency of any kind. Being a baby boomer, I miss such humor on t.v.

    My First Set Had a Bad Disc But My Second Set Is Fine!

    The Munsters is one of my favorite classic sitcoms and I got into watching this when the TV Land chanel added it to their lineup and I was really happy when a couple of years ago I got the complete first season on DVD for my birthday but I was disappointed that one of the discs was defective. An episode on the A side of disc one called A Walk on The Mild Side played great until the last scene and then skipped and froze. I have since gotten a new set and every episode plays perfectly including A Walk on the Mild Side. Be careful when buying this set and make sure you watch the episodes right away so you can return it if you get a bad disc. Also be careful buying used copies, there are probably alot of used sets floating around that have bad discs.

    At Last !

    I have long loved both the Addams Family & the Munsters and am so happy the latter is finally out on DVD. This was an adorable, heart-warming & funny little show. Herman , was a wonderful caring father & husband who loved his family and tried to do right by them even if he messed up at times. He was a big scary looking fellow ( Frankenstein look alike)but with a heart of gold which shows you can't really judge a book by its cover ! I thought it soo funny how they thought there was nothing strange about themselves and as 'immigrants' tried to assimilate into their new culture. They were also very patriotic citizens. This was and continues to be a great show !
