The Story of the Munsters...
The Munster family, at 1313 Mockingbird Lane, always thinks
differently than the rest of us. They prefer rainy days to
sunny ones. If color comes into their cheeks, it means
they?re feeling sick.
The head of this horrifyingly funny household is Herman
Munster tall, gaunt, cadaverous and in his 150's. He has a
flat square-shaped head, a jagged saber scar on his
forehead, ill-fitting clothes, darkly ringed eyes, and bolts
in his neck.
A gentle giant, Herman looks at the world with the trust of
a child. He says he was born "in Germany, in a laboratory
built by a Dr. Frankenstein, whose hobby was putting
together do-it-yourself people kits." He left Germany at an
early age and was adopted in England by a family named
Munster, which conveniently set up the later theatrical
movie, MUNSTER GO HOME (1966), where Herman inherits an
English castle and a royal title.
Herman tries his best to be a good husband, father and
provider. He drives his car (half hot rod, half Hearse) to
work each day at the Gateman, Goodbury & Graves Funeral
Parlor, where Mr. Gateman (John Carradine) considers him an
exemplary employee, "He s one of the few people at the
parlor who doesn t lie down on the job."
