    Beverley Owen who thought she was only making a pilot, was distraught when the show was picked up. She wanted to return to New York, so as soon as her 13 episode contract ended she left the show.

    They filmed 'My Fair Munster' twice as a pilot and a third time as an episode.
    Although Grandpa was Dracula it was never really stated on the show.

    Al Lewis, Pat Priest and Butch Patrick launched a class action suit against a firm that manufactures a Las Vegas 'Munsters' slot machines (August 2003).
    ABC placed 'Batman' opposite the 'Munsters' which sent them to an early grave,
    The show echoed the sentiments of the non-conformist attitudes of the 1960's.

    Herman and Lily were the first TV sit-com couple to sleep in the same bed.
    Joe Connelly and Bob Mosher who developed, produced and wrote 'The Amos & Andy Show' and 'Leave it to Beaver' did the same for 'The Munsters.'
    They were goth before goth was cool.

    and Eddie Van Halen named their son Wolfgang, Eddie Munster's middle name.
