Format: DVD Verified Purchase
So many of the previous reviews are done in anticipation of the DVD release, but not much has been said about the set itself. What you get is the Munsters in their original broadcast aspect ratio of 1.33:1 with the unaired pilot in color and the first 38 episodes of the show in glorious Black & White. Other than a few minor problems, the set is well done and Universal Studios should be commended for giving us the Munsters Season One on DVD.

The sound in Dolby Digital 2.0 is very clean and well done, considering that this show is over 40 years old. The picture quality is superior to any of Munsters episodes I have seen in any previous format before. However there are some very minor specks and debris in some episodes, but really nothing to complain about. There are also a number of scenes in various episodes where the picture contrast is on the dark side and it's hard to make out some of the images or fine detail in the scene. Overall these minor problems do not take away from the great quality of this set.

The packaging is well done with nice artwork throughout. One major drawback is that the 38 episodes are on dual sided discs. While I'm not a big fan of this format, it does keep the cost down. In my opinion after seeing the original pilot in color, I think the Studio made the right choice to film the show in Black & White. Overall the Munsters Season One is hilarious and quirky fun for the whole family and the characters are just as loveable today. There's really nothing to think about if you're a fan of the show, grab your set today!!

This three-disc Dual sided DVD set has all 38 first-season episodes with remastered transfers, and includes the 15-minute pilot with different actors as Lily and Eddie, unfortunately there are no extras or commentaries.

One of the best old sitcoms out there. Gotta love Herman's innocence. Wish this series back in it's day had been longer.

By Ms. H. Sinton on June 19 2006
Format: DVD
First shown on American TV in the 60's, the Munsters is about a family who the outside world views as odd to say the least, while they themselves see 'normal' looking people as strange. Herman Munster is a Frankenstein look-alike, wife Lily and her father, Grandpa, are vampires while son Eddie is a werewolf. Also living in their mausoleum type house is Lily's beautiful niece Marilyn whom the Munster's pity as they see her looks as 'unfortunate'.

This DVD set features all 36 episodes from season 1 and is presented on 6 discs. It is a typical comedy of that era, simple family values and good clean fun with the underlying message that it is ok to be different. The set features no extras, not even subtitles for the hard of hearing hence the four stars rating rather than five. It doesn't look as if there has been much cleaning up of the picture either, although overall the quality is not bad. It's a shame more effort wasn't put into the DVD release but that aside, it is a worthwhile addition to the collection of any Munsters fan.

I love The Munsters. I have to get the DVD. But why does it have to be $60.00! That's crazy! It only has three discs and it barely has any extras. I got the first season of The Simpsons, with only 3 discs and a bunch of extras, for less than $60.00!!!
I still will get The Munsters on DVD because the show is great, but it is painful to think of how expensive the next DVD will be(...).

Wonderful news to know that the Munsters episodes are gonna be
released on DVD. I have seen some episodes and even have
recorded some on VHS but I haven't seen all. I literally fall
from my bed laughing each time I see an episode. What a great
chemistry the actors made: Fred Gwyne (Herman) and Al Lewis
(granpa) plus the talents of Yvonne De Carlo, Pat Priest and
Butch Patrick. I recall an episode where Herman asks his boss
for a raise and he gets fired and he didn't want Lily to know
he was without a job, then he seretely goes out seeking for a
new job and ends up with various jobs where he surely made a mess
and gave us a chain of funny situations.

I Can't wait to finaly own this awesome hilarious show on DVD!
I love the Munsters and think they are a much more interesting TV family then the boring TV families from Leave it To Beaver, Father Knows Best, The Donna Reed Show, etc, etc, etc!
btw: Marilyn was played by two different actors in the first season First by Beverly Owen and than by Pat Priest and as much as I like Pat Priest I wonder why she replaced Beverly Owen and whatever happed to Beverly Owen.

I always preferred 'The Munsters' to 'The Addams Family'. Both have their own certain charm, though.
We're finally treated to the complete first season of 'The Munsters' on DVD. Personally, I can't wait. The nostalgia that bleeds from this show can only be rivaled by the likes of the original 60's Spider-Man cartoons and the original Star Trek. What to expect of this short-lived 60's sitcom is, corny gags, cheezy sets, inept and silly plots, annoying laugh-track that snickers at anything, goofy endings and ridiculously hammy acting.
Would you really have it any other way?
The cast is quite perfect, though. The bulky, dopey, sensitive, half-wit Frankenstein, Herman. The sultry yet prudish, Lily. The sneaky, sarcastic and "brilliant" mad-scientist, Grandpa. The innocent and always curious werewolf-child, Eddie. And the frightfully normal teenage prom-queen, Marilyn (who is shunned and dubbed a freak for being so ordinary and pretty).
All in all, 'The Munsters' is just pure fun. Grab this DVD if you're into it. If not, then go run to your precious 'Addams Family'.
