Premise: A ghoulishly funny sitcom about a family of misfits residing at 1313 Mockingbird Lane. Patriarch Herman, whose green complexion and monstrous size led him to be mistaken for the missing link, was as good-hearted as he was simpleminded. His wife, Lily, resembled a vampire. The mad-scientist grandfather was a dead ringer for an aged Dracula. And the son, Eddie, looked like a wolf boy. Only a niece passed as `normal' looking. The cast reunited in 1981 for the NBC teleflick `The Munsters Revenge.'
