A family of friendly monsters have misadventures, never quite understanding why people react to them so strangely.
Although Bud Westmore is credited as make up artist on each installment of The Munsters, he merely supervised Universal's makeup department at the time. The actual, uncredited work was done by Karl Silvera (Herman's make-up and appliances) Perc Westmore (Grandpa), Abe Haberman (Lily) and Michael Westmore (Marilyn and Eddie).
What does Ramone look like?
Lily Munster: He looks a little like Cary Grant, the poor man.
The Munsters regard their niece Marilyn (who looks like the ideal beauty of non-monster people) as ugly and deformed, yet everyone else in the town of Mockingbird Heights basically looks like Marilyn. The Munsters also watch movies and regard then-popular stars such as Frank Sinatra and Rock Hudson as ideal men, and Grandpa's beauty potions always conjure up a beauty who looks something like Marilyn. Shouldn't their concept of beauty be horrible monsters, in accordance with the premise that Marilyn is an ugly duckling? Nor do the Munsters seem to be aware that they look radically different from non-monster people, despite interacting with them on a daily basis.
In the un-broadcast pilot The Munsters: My Fair Munster: Unaired Pilot 1 (2004), Nate Derman, who played Eddie Munster, is listed in the opening credits as "Happy Derman."
