In a bold yet shrewd maneuver, Universal Home Entertainment offers to Munsters fans who wish to avoid double-dipping with The Munsters - The Complete Series set this single disc release of The Munsters Season One episode "Family Portrait." Like the Complete Series set (also available on October 7th), this disc features for the first time both the colorized version and original black and white version of the episode where the Munsters are selected as "the average American family" by Event Magazine. Featuring the final appearance of Beverley Owen as Marilyn Munster, "Family Portrait" (originally telecast December 17, 1964) guest stars Harvey Korman (The Carol Burnett Show) and runs 25 minutes for each version of the episode.

2.0 out of 5 stars Is that all there is? November 2, 2009
Don't get me wrong. I don't have a problem with Universal putting out a single disc featuring the newly colorized version (along with original black and white version) of a 1st season episode of The Munsters. This allows people who already bought the two seasons of the TV series to bypass buying the complete series set. But for crying out loud! A list price of $19.98 and a selling price of $14 for one episode in two formats? What greed! This disc should have a list of $9.98. End of story!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Munsters look Great in Color! September 26, 2008
I received my copy a bit early, and the color episode looks GREAT! Someone made sure they got the colors right because the clothes of the characters and their make-up match color photos I have seen perfectly. After viewing this color episode, I went to the black and white episode of the same show, and missed the color! This series is perfect in black and white and yet I think a lot of people will enjoy seeing this episode in color. I highly recommend buying it. I award the DVD five stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth it if You're a Munsters fan September 4, 2010
Verified Purchase
For anyone who's a fan of the show, this DVD is worth buying. The color is actually pretty good. It doesn't look like it was computer generated. What puzzles me is why the people who put this together chose "Family Portrait" as the episode to colorize. While it's not a bad episode, it's far from being one of the best (a better choice would have been "Grandpa's Call Of the wild", or "Hermans Happy Valley"). Perhaps they chose it because it was Beverley Owen's last episode before she left the show. Also, why is there only one episode? Considering this, the current price of $15 is a little steep. You may want to wait until the price drops to around $10, as I did.
Still, a must for any fan of The Munsters. Recommended!

3.0 out of 5 stars Dumb idea. July 17, 2013
Verified Purchase
Colorazation still has not been perfected. And it's painfully obvious in the DVD. None of the backgrounds or long shots have "color". It seems that just the actors and some foreground objects have been colourized...So basically the overall feeling you get is frustration. Why ruin a classsic in this way. More than anything, it's an obstruction to the enjoyment of the episode...I say stick with the classic B/W version. Get the box set. Then sit back and laugh out loud. The Munsters are and always will be a classic show. 5 stars for The Munsters. No stars for the colouraztion process.
