Universal Pictures originated many of the well-known character designs for Dracula, Frankenstein's Monster, and the Wolf Man in the 1930s and 40s. By the 1960s and the advent of television, Universal decided to take part in developing a series based on these character creations. Instead of taking a more serious or horrific approach, a comedy was constructed and instead of having the various monsters prowl around, it was decided to make them all as one happy family. Herman Munster was based on Frankenstein's Monster, his wife Lily was based on the Bride of Frankenstein, Grandpa was based on Dracula, son Eddie was based on Wolf Man and daughter Marilyn was based on Marilyn Monroe, the outcast of the bunch. It is now a fondly remembered series and this comic book features a number of color photo covers.
