* ValuesDissonance: The episode "Yes Galen, There is a Herman" didn't age well after the era of StrangerDanger. To wit, Herman makes friends with a little boy named Galen, has the boy call him "Uncle Herman," and invites him over to visit by saying that he has a son Galen's age (and even ''worse'', once they're there, Grandpa invites them down to the basement). True, it's only GentleGiant Herman, and the whole thing is innocent, but it goes against everything that you should teach kids about strangers.

* ContestedSequel: The Munsters Today gets a lot of flack, particularly because of its initial premise being that the Munsters of the original show ended up in the late 1980's because of being in suspended animation for over 20 years, but it still has its share of fans.

to:

* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: Even detractors of ''The Munsters Today'' agree that the show's theme music, a rock version of the original show's theme, is pretty cool.

* GrowingTheBeard: The Munsters Today, a SequelSeries[=/=]{{Spinoff}} to the original 1960's show, started off as rather mediocre with cheesy costumes, Come the second season, however, and the costumes improve significantly and episodes began to have more poignant themes, such as "Once in a Blue Moon" revealing that Grandpa's wife is still alive and that she had to leave him for complicated reasons.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: It's been said that the Munsters can be considered Jewish, and it's not that far off. The family does have rather different traditions in food, clothing, behavior, their culture is significantly unusual enough to startle outsiders, though they do mingle with people at large it's when someone really stops to notice any of them, esp Herman or Grandpa, that their "otherness" becomes apparent.
