As most of you big-time Munsters
fans know, the original 1964 series was following by two films
(out on DVD) starring the original cast. After that came the second series, The Munsters Today
(a.k.a. The New Munsters
) in 1988, then the telefilms Here Come the Munsters
in 1995 and The Munsters' Scary Little Christmas
in 1996. The latter was the final Munsters
production to date, and the best-received.
Each of those final three productions had a different cast that the previous production, but Scary Little Christmas
has been marked by fans as the one closest to the original in many ways. Veteran TV actor Sam McMurray (most recently seen as "Supervisor O'Boyle" in The King of Queens
) took on the role of Herman Munster, while Ann Magnuson (Anything But Love
) played wife Lily. Comedian Sandy Baron (seen sometimes in Seinfeld
as "Jack Klompus") was the new Grandpa, the lovely Elaine Hendrix (Joan of Arcadia
) played Marilyn, and Brandon "Bug" Hall played Eddie.
fans consider this a must-have, and so we are delighted to tell you that Universal has announced the release of this telefilm on DVD! It will be in stores on November 6th
, at a cost of just $14.98 SRP. Running time is 91 minutes, video is full-frame (as originally aired), and audio is English Dolby Digital 2.0. There are also English subtitles on board.
