YMMV: The Munsters
  • Alternate Character Interpretation: 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 the family does mingle with people at large, it is when someone really stops to notice any of them, esp Herman or Grandpa, that their "otherness" becomes apparent.
  • Contested Sequel: The Munsters Today.
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: In "Herman the Rookie" Leo Durocher says about Herman "I dont know whether to sign him with the Dodgers or send him to Vietnam."
  • Growing the Beard: The Munsters Today, a Sequel Series/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.
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks: Many fans' anticipated reaction to Mockingbird Lane when it was first announced.
