It\u2019s been over five decades since The Munsters graced TV screens from their home at 1313 Mockingbird Lane. Since its brief debut, it\u2019s gained a devoted following, including one Rob Zombie who celebrated the anniversary with a tribute on Instagram. Heavy metal musician Rob Zombie enthusiastically dove into creating a Munsters reboot movie, on which he serves as director. Through social media, he has shared updates on the set, cast, props, and meetings with members of the original Munsters team. So, of course, he wasn\u2019t about to miss the 57th anniversary. Rob Zombie celebrates 57th anniversary of \u2018The Munsters\u2019 View this post on Instagram A post shared by RobZombieofficial (@robzombieofficial) The Munsters originally debuted on September 24, 1964. It only aired for two seasons, encapsulating 70 episodes, each 25 minutes in length. While it could not gain traction while competing with Batman during a similar airtime, it received exponentially more support in syndication.

He went on to reflect, \u201cThe greatest show ever premiered today September 24, 1964! What\u2019s your favorite episode?\u201d In keeping with the show\u2019s spooky atmosphere, he included several skull graphics in his caption. Revolutionary in surprising ways Zombie considers The Munsters to be one of the best shows to air \/ Everett Collection The accompanying picture shows just one of the many creative and unexpected ways The Munsters managed to last in our hearts for 57 years. While programs like The Addams Family had to think up and introduce audiences to all-new characters, The Munsters could tap into Universal\u2019s hall of monstrous property; hence, a family could be a young version of the Wolf Man, Dracula could be the steadfast grandpa, and Frankenstein could be a gentle father. It also shot entirely in black-and-white, like Zombie\u2019s accompanying photo, the better to retain the show\u2019s atmosphere as a comedic love letter to horror films of old. Christopher Lee\u2019s deep intonation as Count Dracula became the fuel for many viewers\u2019 nightmares. In contrast, though The Munsters took a fun and timeless spin on \u201chorror\u201d in an almost paradoxical way; don\u2019t show the scenes in color, lest they actually be too scary like that, and detract from the overall idea of The Munsters: make those scary monsters of yore actually funny, like people you could actually know.
