The Munsters was a childhood favorite along with The Boy Who Could Fly
“Do not let your fire go out spark by irreplaceable spark... Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists.. it is real…. It is possible…. It’s yours. “ Ayn Rand (Atlas Shrugged)

“Funny thing, yesterday morning I found my youngest son and daughter watching the rerun of an old ("The Munsters" (1964)) episode and I said, "My God, THAT'S not still on, is it?" Well, even so, I was very lucky and it was great fun to be as much of a household product as something like Rinso. I almost wish I could do it all over again.” - Fred Gwynne ~Horror Central
He also wrote and illustrated several children's books.
