Great Songs With a Halloween Theme: Theme From "The Munsters"

Theme From "The Munsters"


More Halloween fun from television world came in the form of the sitcom "The Munsters", which, according to Wikipedia.org, ran at the same time on CBS at the same time "The Addams Family" ran on ABC.

More from Wikipedia:  "The family, while decidedly odd, consider themselves fairly typical working-class Americans of the era. Herman, like many husbands of the 1960s, is the sole wage-earner in the family, though Lily and Grandpa make (short-lived) attempts to earn a little money from time to time. While Herman is the titular "head of household," Lily actually makes most of the decisions."

The Munsters starred the great Fred Wynne and the very lovely, IMO, Yvonne DeCarlo.  Never quite could figure out what Marilyn had to do with everything, but hey, it's TV, right?

Believe it or not, there were actually lyrics to the theme song, part of which were:

"If you should meet this strange family
Just forget what some people have said,
The Munsters may shake your hand clammily
But they're not necessarily dead."
