THE MUNSTERS 40th Anniversary Collection "The First Family of Fright."

THE MUNSTERS ran on the CBS TV network from 1964 to 1966 in glorious black & white. In honor of the 40th Anniversary, deluxe 12" collectible figures of the entire freaky family.

The collection will include HERMAN MUNSTER, who looks like Frankenstein's monster; his wife LILY, resembling the Bride of Frankenstein with her hair combed down; GRANDPA, a classic vampire; son EDDIE, a combination of a short werewolf and vampire; and, the strangest one in the family, Lily's niece, MARILYN MUNSTER. She s a young girl with creamy complexion, blonde hair, and blue eyes. The whole clan is very protective of Marilyn, no matter how ugly she is.

The 40th anniversary collection will be the definitive, highest quality Munster figures ever made.

The Story of the Munsters... The Munster family, at 1313 Mockingbird Lane, always thinks differently than the rest of us. They prefer rainy days to sunny ones. If color comes into their cheeks, it means they?re feeling sick.

The head of this horrifyingly funny household is Herman Munster tall, gaunt, cadaverous and in his 150's. He has a flat square-shaped head, a jagged saber scar on his forehead, ill-fitting clothes, darkly ringed eyes, and bolts in his neck.

A gentle giant, Herman looks at the world with the trust of a child. He says he was born "in Germany, in a laboratory built by a Dr. Frankenstein, whose hobby was putting together do-it-yourself people kits." He left Germany at an early age and was adopted in England by a family named Munster, which conveniently set up the later theatrical movie, MUNSTER GO HOME (1966), where Herman inherits an English castle and a royal title.

Herman tries his best to be a good husband, father and provider. He drives his car (half hot rod, half Hearse) to work each day at the Gateman, Goodbury & Graves Funeral Parlor, where Mr. Gateman (John Carradine) considers him an exemplary employee, "He s one of the few people at the parlor who doesn t lie down on the job."

Value: $50. (Per Doll)
