Exclusive: The Munsters back in development at NBC
Guard your jugular veins, kids! Butch Patrick — who played Eddie, the boy vampire, on The Munsters — is back. This week, his '60s spook-com's first season arrives on DVD, giving classic TV fans a treat to sink their fangs into. Here, TV Guide Online asks the 51-year-old actor what it's like being forever known as Herman and Lily's toothy son, and looks back at life behind the scenes at 1313 Mockingbird Lane.
TV Guide Online: What's on the DVD?Butch Patrick: It's 38 episodes, plus the [never-before-seen] pilot. The first 13 episodes are the ones with Beverly Owen, the first actress to play Marilyn [before Pat Priest assumed the role]. She was my favorite because I had a real big crush on her. The shows will also have their original full length of 24 minutes. Over the years in reruns, it's been cut back to sometimes as low as 19 or 20 minutes for commercials.
