Just what you need when you're sick of the depressing rubbish on tv, the Munsters may be a bit corny in places but you cant help but laugh which after a hard, serious day at work is just the ticket!

5.0 out of 5 stars superb value 7 Jan 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is one of the best dvds I've ever bought and although of course in black and white the quality of the picture and the sound is excellent. I bought it for myself for Christmas and to my amazement found my eleven year old granddaughter watching it as much as I was. The stories are wonderfully predictable and the performances are warm and endearing and not a swearword in sight. Great family entertainment. Full marks to Amazon also for delivery and packaging - it arrived safe and sound and in breathtakingly quick time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still The Munsters after all these years... 27 Nov 2005
By Mymunster3 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
As a child growing up in the 70's and 80's, I used to come home from school and watch The Munsters. I was absolutely fascinated with this series. The characters were hilarious, and the scripts were excellent! Now, the complete second season, comes to DVD in a 3 disc set. It features all 32 episodes from The Munsters second and final season. Don't forget about the 4 A&E Bios as bonus features! The 4 A&E Bios will be about, The Munsters, "America's First Family of Fright", Fred Gwynne, "More Than a Munster", Yvonne DeCarlo, "Gilded Lily", and Al Lewis, "Forever Grandpa". All packaged, in a Herman Munster head.

Take a good close look at Fred Gwynne's portrayal of Herman Munster. You will see that Herman get's more and more child-like, especially in "Prehistoric Munster", and "The Musician". Herman has now developed a very large booming laugh, the occasional temper-tantrums, and his always popular catchphrases, "Darn, Darn, Darn!!!" and "I'll kill 'em, I'll kill 'em, I'll kill 'em!!!"

Also, take a careful look at Al Lewis' sideburns. In the early episodes of Season 2, ("Herman's Child Psychology," "Herman the Master Spy," & "Bronco-Bustin' Munster") His sideburns were small, but take a look at the episodes called "Cyrano de Munster," "A Visit from Johann", and "Eddie's Brother", you will see that Al shaved much lower, and almost had some sort of a beard going on. A very neat trait for Grandpa to have!

Now, if you've only seen Season 2 episodes from TVLand, then you don't know what the original Season 2 theme is supposed to sound like. The original Season 2 theme of The Munsters is supposed to stop after Butch Patrick's name is shown. More theme music starts again when you see "Joe Connelly and Bob Mosher". That's the way it's supposed to be because when The Munsters originally aired on CBS, commercials used to be in that break between themes. TVLand edited the theme into one long version. The TVLand version, is incorrect. The DVD version, is correct.

Also, don't be shocked if some episodes do not feature the crashing door sound. That's the way it was originally supposed to be, because the producers (Joe Connelly and Bob Mosher) never intended for their to be a crash sound, but later added it to have more of an effect when you would see Herman come through the doors.

The box itself can also be a challenge to handle. What I have found to be handy, is just leave the inner "head" out of the original box.

The last three issues I would like to address, is space of episodes on the discs, B&W film turning sepia, and the audio quality of "Cyrano de Munster."

There are 32 half-hour episodes on this set, and four 40 minute biographies. If you have 3 double-sided discs, why not use the space appropriately? The episodes should have been spaced in this manner, seven episodes on Disc 1 A, and Disc 1 B, then 6 episodes on Disc 2 A, Disc 2 B, and Disc 3 A. Then place the four 40 minute biographies on Disc 3 B.

There is also a visible problem with some episodes turning sepia. Not all the episodes have their original rich B&W format. Some episodes have a yellow-brown tint that is visible by turning up the color on your television set. The only episode with real B&W, is "The Musician."

"Cyrano de Munster," probably has the worst audio quality of any "Munsters" episode. There is a light crackle sound that is continuous from about half-way through the episode, all the way to the start of the closing theme. It's annoying to hear "snap, crackle, and pop" for 10 minutes.

5.0 out of 5 stars At Long Last: Herman Munster vs. Clyde! 3 Sep 2005
By R. F. Mojica - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought the first season DVD set, but this is the one I've really been waiting for. It has my two favorite episodes: the one with "Fair Deal Dan" starring Frank Gorshin as a crooked used car dealer, and the other featuring the battle between Herman and a new employee at the parlor--Clyde, the practical joker.

When TV Land aired the Munsters, they refused to show this episode. I always wondered why; now I read on here that they considered it "too violent".

How absurd. When TV Land started, it sounded like a great idea--a cable network dedicated to presenting old, classic TV series, maybe the way TCM presents old movies. This turned out to be a false promise. TV Land, typically, turned out to be a pure rubbish, run, now we learn, by a bunch of PC fascists who not only cut up episodes in order to fit in more commercials, but also censor which episodes we get to see depending on which offend their "enlightened" new age fascist sensibilities. Now the network is completely worthless, airing nought but awful 1970's & 80's sit-coms wall to wall. And to think the original reason I switched to satellite from cable was that I wanted TV Land and my cable company refused to carry it! Now it is just another of the 200 or so cable/satellite networks I get but never watch.

Thank god for DVD, and re-issues of old time TV series, uncut, unedited and in sequence. We need no longer be subject to the whims and censorships of the weepy, sensitive PC types that run networks like TV Land.

I'm looking forward to the release of this set. Hopefully soon Leave It To Beaver, Get Smart and other still unavailable series will get DVD'd, and we can spit on the network heads (and think of what "head" means on a ship and you have an idea what I think of TV Land and its program censors) and be our own program planners, without the supervision of the paternalistic and condescending experts who would decide what is fit for us to watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars FINALLY THE VIEWERS GET THE OPTION TO SEE EPISODE #53 "HERMAN'S PEACE OFFENSIVE" WHICH IS BANNED ON "TV LAND" & "NICK AT NIGHT" 28 Aug 2005
By Wayne Lalevee - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Episode #53 "Herman's Peace Offensive" as a child in the 1960's was always my favorite, and needless to say it aired over and over. The problem is the public relations people at "TV Land" & "Nick at Night" told me that "we will never air it" In my opinion the scene (which I think is the one that "TV Land" & "Nick At Night" has a problem with happens at Herman's work locker) is really not all that bad. I'm not going to spoil it and tell what happens due to the fact that Munster fans old and new may never have seen this episode and with only 70 total episodes ever made it's a great treat to find out that an episode that they may never have seen will be included in this DVD set. This episode is one of the best that is filled with pranks galore, but more importantly a great lesson is learned which Herman teaches to Eddie. The viewers who have not yet seen this episode can decide if this episode should be banned. Beside this episode, some of the best were made so the entire second season should be greatly welcomed!!Wayne Lalevee

1.0 out of 5 stars Another defective from Universal 21 Jan 2006
By L. Antonicello - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I've had two defective copies of this DVD set. I'm a big fan of the show, but I guess I'll have to live without this. I just can't see trying to get though another set of frozen or locked images. The packaging is also poor and doesn't protect the discs at all. A big dissapointment.

4.0 out of 5 stars GREAT Series Deserved Better for Season 2 12 Jan 2006
By MysteryLover - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Man, how I have loved this show since childhood, and in particular waited for Season 2 because my two favorite episodes - "The Fregosi Emerald" and the one where Herman's musical career is brought to a screeching halt by "Nothin' Muffins" - are my favorites.

The biographies of star Fred Gwynne, Yvonne DeCarlo, and Al Lewis as the main "extras" are very cool, and I am fine with the quality - but am really disappointed over Universal's shoddy release of Season 2, compared with what they did for Season 1.

As others have said, the packaging sucks - it's cheap, flimsy, and hard to take apart and put back together; for that reason alone, I tend to watch the first season set more (it's just easier to get out of the case!). But also, Universal has added this ANNOYING teaser advertising themselves AT THE BEGINNING OF EACH AND EVEY EPISODE. This wasn't part of the original show, and if you watch a bunch of episodes in a row it becomes annoying and a distraction.

But what really hocked me off is that there are no chapters within the episodes! With season one, you could jump to different scenes within a specific episode - not here! If you hit chapter forward on the remote, you'll jump to the next episode! SUCKS!

I am so glad to have the entire series now, but it's a real shame the TV's "First Family of Fright" was short-shifted with this weak season 2 release. Universal, you guys were just LAZY with this one, cheating consumers (especially considering the price of the set), and I almost wish they'd release season 2 again ... this time with some TLC.
