A family of friendly monsters have misadventures, never quite understanding why people react to them so strangely.
Bill Mumy was the original choice for Eddie Munster, but his parents didn't approve of the extensive makeup that would be used for his character. He would eventually guest on The Munsters: Come Back, Little Googie (1965), playing an incorrigible brat, during the first season.
Eddie! You better start dawdling, or you're going to be on time for school!
In the first season's re-shoot of the opening credits, in order to introduce Pat Priest, as Fred Gwynne/ Herman is bending over to kiss Lily, it's possible to see Butch Patrick/ Eddie's legs moving, on the right balcony (upper right-hand screen corner), as he positions himself to come down the staircase for his introduction.
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."
