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.

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.

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!

I am a loyal and long standing fan of The Munsters Family. I am always guaranteed a great laugh when I see their television shows/movies. The entire cast are so talented and funny, even Marilyn(the normal family member. It is a must have purchase. Enjoy the laughs!

I have read poor reviews on this, but I do not agree with them. True only one show, but the quality of the added color was true to form and added to the one show that was presented. The only thing they could have added for the money would be the unaired "pilot" shown to the station guys. I have it on VHS but have not seen it for sale on DVD yet.

Colorazation still has not been perfected. And it's painfully obvious in this 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.

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!

Digital olorization of TV shows originally shot in black and white got a bad reputation some decades ago because of the relatively primitive techniques used in the 1980s (which were due to poor artistic color choices as much as clumsy technical methods), and I had real doubts about this before I saw it, especially after seeing how the Munsters feature "Munsters Go Home," originally shot in color had been butchered in the DVD transfer, with Herman being made artificially green in many scenes. But after seeing about 15 seconnds of this, I was saying, "Wow! This looks fine!" One of the best aspects of this beloved series was the Munsters' makeup, which was basically gray, but with a very subtle blue tint, even though Herman is occasionally referred to in the scripts as being "green." So the colorists have let them be gray, but shifted it ever so slightly towqrd green, which doesn't let the bluish color that we have seen in the best color photographs of the cast show through but it looks real good anyway. Lilly's dress is made to look pink, which is an error,(I think they were going for lavender, but it is too red-- the dress itself was originally white but diaphanous so that the pink of her un-made-up arms showed through). The living room set was very rich in texture and that is really brought out in this, except that warm hues predominate, and the couch is yellow-- color stills taken at the time are very violet brown which is more appropriately spooky and drab. The curtains on the Munsters coach colored yellow,and I remember them as matching the red seats (I have seen the Coach in person).Read more ›
