The Munsters' Revenge is a made-for-TV film produced by Universal Studios that first aired on NBC on February 27, 1981. It reunited The Munsters cast members Fred Gwynne as lovably bumbling oaf Herman, Al Lewis as cranky old Grandpa and Yvonne De Carlo who isn't given much to do as Lily. Butch Patrick and Pat Priest were replaced by newcomers Jo McDonnell as Marilyn and Canadian child actor K. C. Martel as Eddie. Peter Fox contributes a likable performance as nice guy detective Glen, and Bob Hastings is a total robust hoot as a jolly opera-singing Phantom of the Opera. The film was produced as a way for a possible sequel to the original (1964-1966) series.
The film is about a "wax museum owner/evil criminal mastermind Dr. Diablo (a frantically mugging Sid Caesar) who creates robot lookalikes of Herman and Grandpa in order to pull off an elaborate heist to frame them. They must both prove their innocence and find out the true thieves in time for the Halloween celebration at the Munster home." The Munsters' Revenge was released on VHS by Gaiam on November 7, 1996. It is available on a 2006 DVD double-feature known as Two-Movie Fright Fest alongside Munster, Go Home!
I wasn't really a fan of this film when I was a kid but I love it now. Not as great as the original 1964-1966 series but I think still good.
