31 Days of Spook – Day 1

01 Oct

Mean little animated ghost doing it's best to scare a BOO! sign Hello my frightful spooks, ghosts, goblins and creatures of the night.  (I snorted on that one just a bit)!  Count Baconula here –

Welcome to 31 Days of Spook on my blog.  Today is day #1 – how exciting, huh?  I’m going to highlight something eerie, something spooky, something that goes bump in the night every day of this wonderfully haunting month of October.  Everything will lead up to the big night – Halloween.  Are you ready for the trip?  Are you ready for the spooks.  I’ll start off easy with you.  I promise.

Today we are going to highlight The MunstersThe Munsters was a weekly television show that revolved around the home life of some friendly ‘monsters’ per say in every day situations.  The first show aired September 24, 1964 and the series ran until May 12, 1966.  It’s hard to believe but there was only 70 episodes produced. All of these shows were made in black and white and I truly believe that made them even spookier.

There were several movies based on the television series that were also produced.

In 1966, Munster, Go Home!  was released.  This was the first time that the Munsters were shown in color.  This is probably one of my favorites from the show.  The Munsters travel to England to claim Munster Hall after the death of an old relative.  And me being a guy, I fell in love with the DRAG-U-LA car.  Snorts – now that was a car that I would love to ride around in – even with them!

In 1981, The Munster’s Revenge was released.  Snorts – who would have ever believed the plot of this one!  The owner of a wax museum creates robots of Herman and Grandpa and uses them as part of a plot to rob a traveling Egyptian antiquities exhibit.  Really?!  Of all the people in the world, they create robots out of Herman and Grandpa?  Can you imagine the fun of this movie?  Can you imagine running into Herman and Grandpa – shivers.  That’s definitely what nightmares are made out of!

In 1995, Here Comes the Munsters was released.  This one I had to watch twice because the first time I had one hoove over my eyes in fear.  My fur was standing up on its own.  In this movie, the family search for Herman’s brother in law, Norman Hyde, only to find out that he has unknowingly turned himself into Brent Jekyll who is running for Congress.  See what I mean – congress – double shivers!

In 1996, The Munster’s Scary Little Christmas came out.  In this show, Grandpa has accidentally captured Santa Claus and two of his elves while Lily is trying to win the local neighborhood Christmas home decorating competition.  AND, Marilyn has invited family and friends from the old country to stay for Christmas.  I almost lost my religion watching this one.  This movie is by far the scariest of them all.  Can you imagine life without Santa Claus – I know!  That is frightening – shivers.

For the day and time, you might get some shivers of the spooky family that crawled up your spine and scared you – especially that hideous Marilyn.  Now that’s a scary monster – snort shivers.

TRIVIA TIME MY FRIENDS –  (Don’t cheat.  The answers are at the bottom of this page – have fun 🙂

  1. Name the five main characters of the show.
  2. What was the address to The Munsters home?
  3. Eddie’s pet dragon lives under the stairs.  What is his name?
  4. What was Grandpa’s pet bat named?
  5. What was the name of the funeral parlor that Herman worked at?

Oh and by the way, mommy and daddy are big time fans of the show as well.  They collect – I know of all things – collectible Barbie Dolls.

  Daddy bought this one for mommy a long time ago for her birthday.  What a sweet spooky couple, huh? snorts

Happy Spook day 1 my friends.  May you have a chilling day.

    The Munsters also had one of the greatest TV theme songs ever!

    I loved this trip down memory lane! This was a favorite spooky show. Of course it wasn’t all that spooky, but it was so wonderfully off-beat and a bit macabre at times, I loved it. I couldn’t remember the names, but when I saw them it all came back to me! It’s been a loooong time since I’ve seen an episode. Great kick-off to your spooky month, Bacon. ox
