1313 Mockingbird Lane, the creepy, spider-web-covered
residence of the Munsters, a family who resemble
celluloid fiends of the 1930s: Herman (a
Frankenstein-like creature), a funeral parlor employee;
his wife, Lily (a female vampire); their 10-year-old son,
Edward Wolfgang (a werewolf); Lily's father, Count
Dracula (Grandpa), a 378-year-old mad scientist; their
"poor unfortunate" niece, Marilyn, young and beautiful,
the black sheep of the family; and Spot, the family pet
(a fire-breathing dinosaur who lived under the stairs).
The Munsters considered themselves a normal,
everyday American family, but to neighbors
they were a bit unusual.
These five, are the Munsters. They look rather strange, act a
little odd at times, but who's perfect? They also have the
Koach and Grandpa's Drag-u-la racer in the garage. Normal, or
what? The Munster go about their day to day life freaking
people out. Their telephone is in a coffin in the wall. They
eat some normal foods like oatmeal, and sandwiches, but
sometimes they eat some things more classy, like filet of
dragon. To Lily, dusting the house means throwing dust around.
For Eddie, it's too early for bed if it's too dark out. The
Munsters also do lots of things backwards. Pour a cup of
cream, and add some tea. Their house has cobwebs galore, yet
they don't seem to mind.
Since 1964, The Munsters have remained a cult classic, and
continue to gain new audiences and age groups, as they are
repeated internationally in syndication.
