Great quality DVD with some bonuses.

There can never be a chance to get commentary from a dead person, not even formerly un-dead Munsters like Gwynne and Lewis.

As a child growing up in the 70's and 80's, I used to come home from school and watch The Munsters. I was absolutely fascinated with this series. The characters were hilarious, and the scripts were excellent! Now, the complete second season, comes to DVD in a 3 disc set. It features all 32 episodes from The Munsters second and final season. Don't forget about the 4 A&E Bios as bonus features! The 4 A&E Bios will be about, The Munsters, "America's First Family of Fright", Fred Gwynne, "More Than a Munster", Yvonne DeCarlo, "Gilded Lily", and Al Lewis, "Forever Grandpa". All packaged, in a Herman Munster head.

Take a good close look at Fred Gwynne's portrayal of Herman Munster. You will see that Herman get's more and more child-like, especially in "Prehistoric Munster", and "The Musician". Herman has now developed a very large booming laugh, the occasional temper-tantrums, and his always popular catchphrases, "Darn, Darn, Darn!!!" and "I'll kill 'em, I'll kill 'em, I'll kill 'em!!!"

Also, take a careful look at Al Lewis' sideburns. In the early episodes of Season 2, ("Herman's Child Psychology," "Herman the Master Spy," & "Bronco-Bustin' Munster") His sideburns were small, but take a look at the episodes called "Cyrano de Munster," "A Visit from Johann", and "Eddie's Brother", you will see that Al shaved much lower, and almost had some sort of a beard going on. A very neat trait for Grandpa to have!

Now, if you've only seen Season 2 episodes from TVLand, then you don't know what the original Season 2 theme is supposed to sound like. The original Season 2 theme of The Munsters is supposed to stop after Butch Patrick's name is shown. More theme music starts again when you see "Joe Connelly and Bob Mosher".

I bought the first season DVD set, but this is the one I've really been waiting for. It has my two favorite episodes: the one with "Fair Deal Dan" starring Frank Gorshin as a crooked used car dealer, and the other featuring the battle between Herman and a new employee at the parlor--Clyde, the practical joker.

When TV Land aired the Munsters, they refused to show this episode. I always wondered why; now I read on here that they considered it "too violent".

How absurd. When TV Land started, it sounded like a great idea--a cable network dedicated to presenting old, classic TV series, maybe the way TCM presents old movies. This turned out to be a false promise. TV Land, typically, turned out to be a pure rubbish, run, now we learn, by a bunch of PC fascists who not only cut up episodes in order to fit in more commercials, but also censor which episodes we get to see depending on which offend their "enlightened" new age fascist sensibilities. Now the network is completely worthless, airing nought but awful 1970's & 80's sit-coms wall to wall. And to think the original reason I switched to satellite from cable was that I wanted TV Land and my cable company refused to carry it! Now it is just another of the 200 or so cable/satellite networks I get but never watch.

Thank god for DVD, and re-issues of old time TV series, uncut, unedited and in sequence. We need no longer be subject to the whims and censorships of the weepy, sensitive PC types that run networks like TV Land.

I'm looking forward to the release of this set. Hopefully soon Leave It To Beaver, Get Smart and other still unavailable series will get DVD'd, and we can spit on the network heads (and think of what "head" means on a ship and you have an idea what I think of TV Land and its program censors) and be our own program planners, without the supervision of the paternalistic and condescending experts who would decide what is fit for us to watch.

Episode #53 "Herman's Peace Offensive" as a child in the 1960's was always my favorite, and needless to say it aired over and over. The problem is the public relations people at "TV Land" & "Nick at Night" told me that "we will never air it" In my opinion the scene (which I think is the one that "TV Land" & "Nick At Night" has a problem with happens at Herman's work locker) is really not all that bad. I'm not going to spoil it and tell what happens due to the fact that Munster fans old and new may never have seen this episode and with only 70 total episodes ever made it's a great treat to find out that an episode that they may never have seen will be included in this DVD set. This episode is one of the best that is filled with pranks galore, but more importantly a great lesson is learned which Herman teaches to Eddie. The viewers who have not yet seen this episode can decide if this episode should be banned. Beside this episode, some of the best were made so the entire second season should be greatly welcomed!!Wayne Lalevee

Last August Universal released The Complete 1st Season of The Munsters. The set featured all 38 episodes plus the unaired pilot, but no extras. An independent 2-disc (243 min.) Munsters release called The Munsters: America's First Family of Fright (with extras) from Image Entertainment was also planned to arrive on August 24th, the same day as the Universal season set release. Fearing consumers would be confused by what they would be getting from the two Munsters sets, Image pulled their release with the intent to simply release it at a later date. But then Universal expressed interest in using it as extras for the Munsters season 2 set. Universal and Image negotiated and voila! - The Munsters: Season 2 with extras. But not all of them. Here are the extras for this set (Disc 1 from the 2-disc Image set) plus a list of season 2 episodes:

Four Amazing Looks at the Munsters:
The Munsters: America's First Family of Fright
