Bursting onto screens in the early 1960s, The Munsters offered a skewed, yet hilarious, visualization
of a less than wholesome family unit. The pale and deathly-looking set of characters were loosely based
on a number of popular figures from horror films, and included: Head of the family, Herman Munster
(Fred Gwynne); His demure wife Lily (Yvonne DeCarlo); Grandpa (Al Lewis); Herman and Lily's son,
Eddie (Butch Patrick), and their niece Marilyn (Beverley Owen). Plenty of laughs were provided as the
group of misfits attempted to assimilate themselves into society, although most of the chuckles were
to be found at the gag-fuelled ghouls' highly gothic-looking residence, 1313 Mockingbird Lane.
