I just started watching the Munsters season 1. I'm watching them in order, from episodes 1 through 70. Already completed 13, which was Beverley Owen's last as Marilyn Munster. This show never grows old, just better.

True! There was a lot of humor aimed at the adults at the time. It's great watching the episodes as a grown up. I can now get the bits I missed as a kid. Great show!

I just loved that they thought everyone else was weird, and they were normal.

Yes, "Poor Marilyn", she just didn't inherit the Munster good looks.

I love that show! I may just watch the entire series as well.

The jokes are still very funny even after all these years. If I had to pick a favorite episode -- I don't think that I could.

I really love "Rock-A-Bye Munster" because the episode unveils the Munster Koach.  "The Treasure of Mockingbird Heights" showcases the many aspects of greed hilariously.

I love Baseball, so naturally, "Herman The Rookie" is a favorite too. I'm so glad to be able to own a copy of the series and view it whenever I need a good laugh.

Munsters, great classic television show. The episodes never get old, always entertaining.

Been watching since I was a kid. Now I'm going to need a rewatch as well! "Darn! Darn! Darn!"

Sitting on the floor watching The Munsters, drinking chocolate milk, and playing with my Munsters paper dolls...ahhhh...the sweetest memories of my childhood.  I remember watching them and wanting to be a Munster, when I was in kindergarten.  The physical humor of the show was just as great as the jokes!  Man, I love it!  Now I must watch all the seasons in order!   :)

All 2 of them.

Hahahaha!  I meant " episodes".  I just got all hyped up at the mere thought of watching them in order.  We have a local channel that plays them all out of order - as a filler show.

I didn't care for "Munsters Today", but this is the model of the Munster house used in the series, I photographed a few years ago at Universal Studios.

When I went there back in the 1960's, they still had a recreation of the Munster house, the entry, and Grandpa's lab.
What ever happened to my Transylvania Twist?

Would love to have that model house in my collection.

I loved Paul Lyde as Herman's doctor.
