Notes & Trivia Edit

  • The unaired pilot episode was called "Still the Munsters After All These Years".
  • Despite the change in cast, The Munsters Today is intended as a continuation of the original Munsters television series, not a remake.
  • The original casting choice for Marilyn Munster was Mary Ellen Dunbar who played the character in the unaired pilot episode, but she was replaced by Hilary Van Dyke who played Marilyn in all of the broadcast episodes of the series. Ironically, the original Munsters TV series had more than one actress playing Marilyn as well. Beverley Owen played Marilyn in the first 13 episodes of The Munsters before leaving the series. She was replaced with Pat Priest who played her in the remaining episodes.
  • This series revealed that Grandpa's actual name is Vladimir Dracula.
