* ExtremelyDustyHome

to:

* ExtremelyDustyHomeExpositoryThemeTune: The theme song to the first season of ''The Munsters Today'' explains that the Munsters from the original 1960's series "went to sleep many years ago" and "woke up with a brand new show". Since the rest of the series ignored the premise of the Munsters from the original show ending up in the late 1980's because of being put in suspended animation, the theme song for the other seasons became an instrumental.
* ExtremelyDustyHome: The family lives in an old house with lots of cobwebs.



* ForgottenThemeTuneLyrics

to:

* ForgottenThemeTuneLyricsForgottenThemeTuneLyrics:
** While the show's theme is an instrumental, there were lyrics written for it that were never used.
** Zig-zagged with ''The Munsters Today''. In the first season, the theme song had a few lyrics explaining the show's premise, but the rest of the series changed it to an instrumental, most likely because of the show's changes causing the first season's theme song to become meaningless.

Added DiffLines:

* FishOutOfTemporalWater: The Munsters initially became this in ''The Munsters Today'', where it was established that they accidentally went into suspended animation for over 20 years and now had to catch up with the culture of the late 1980's. The premise only stays consistent in the first season, however, as the other two seasons act as if the suspended animation accident never happened.

* SequelSeries: ''The Munsters Today''.

to:

* SequelSeries: ''The Munsters Today''.Today'' was initially this with the premise that the family from the original 1960's series were in suspended animation for 22 years and woke up in the late 80's, but by the second season this backstory was contradicted enough times that the show became an AlternateContinuity.
