Disc two features an hours worth of additional footage from 1990's interviews with the cast (De Carlo, Lewis, Butch Patrick, and all three Marilyn's - Pat Priest, Beverly Owen, Debbie Watson) from their interviews filmed for the above Biography episodes. The comments are generally light, positive, and rather bland; there were no major quabbles or "dirt" on the set of this series and it's cast of pros.
This disc also contains about an hour of brief footage from other TV appearances by the cast (usually just Gwynne) in character. I really wish they would have given us the complete episodes of some of these programs even if the Munsters bits are short. One especially longs to see the apparently lost CBS special MARINELAND CARNIVAL with the full cast in their characters for this variety special flmed at the famous California attraction which here is represented by it's promo commercial. There's also a couple of Universal studio theatrical newsreels (still in production in the 1960's!!) featuring public appearances by Gwynne and Lewis.
This set could have been better had it included some of 1980's and 1990's various television appearances of the cast such as the full cast reunion on a short-lived talk show, Lewis' intros for the horror movie show he hosted and the TBS marathon of MUNSTERS episodes with his guests Patrick and Priest, De Carlo's rare 1990's talk show appearance on VICKI, etc. I realize getting the rights to such clips would have not been inexpensive but still I'd imagine most Munsterphiles would have gladly paid more for this set with those features. As it stands, it's still a terrific set and an absolute must have for devoted fans of the show.
