5.0 out of 5 stars Frightfully Funny, 21 Oct. 2010
This review is from: The Munsters - Closed Casket Complete Collection [DVD] (DVD)
First aired in the mid-sixties, this great US comedy features Fred Gwynne as frankenstein monster look-alike Herman Munster, and his vampire father in-law, Grandpa (played by Al Lewis) playing Grandpa's daughter is Lily (Yvonne De Carlo).
Much of the wacky humour is based on the Munster family seeing themselves as "normal" while niece Marilyn (played by Beverley Owen, later to be replaced by Pat Priest) is looked on as an unfortunate young lady who's appearance is "odd" like the rest of society.

Eddie (Butch Patrick) is the werewolf son of Herman and Lily, the great chemistry between Fred Gwynne and Al Lewis is the bedrock of the show. Lily rules the roost, keeping the childlike Herman in check, Grandpa's laboratory in the cellar sees many of his crazy experiments go wrong.
The show also features an occasional appearance by John Carradine as Mr Gateman, Herman's boss at the funeral parlour where he works.

The extras in this Boxset include biographies of Fred Gwynne, Al Lewis, and Yvonne De Carlo. The picture and sound quality is good.

If you feel like losing yourself in some good old-fashioned, cheerful humour, grab yourself a copy of this.

I much liked this hilarious series,but more so i have much admired the stunningly beautiful Canadian born
YVONNE DE CARLO[as Lily Munster]. YDC[1922-2007]was not only a great actress but also a very superb
singer and a talented dancer. I indeed have many of her films on dvds. By reading my reviews[you will-i'm sure]
come across many interesting facts about YVONNE DE CARLO-just one of the film worlds stunning beauties[of decades past].
Regards,Bill[W.J.WRIGHT].
