I'm assuming another "dark and gritty" reboot?

I mean, I just don't see Rob Zombie making a comedy

That's exactly what he wants you to think.  The long con.  The boom, right when you least expect it, smaltzy comedy.

Too true. The Haunted World of El Superbeasto was supposed to be a comedy, and it's about as funny as an absinthe hangover.

That's actually the same show, and it really didn't deserve mentioning twice. Your video does a better job of showing how cheap and unfunny it was, though. Mockingbird Lane wasn't good, but it was still a huge improvement over Munsters Today.

In the UK the Munsters were front & centre. The Addams family didn't got popular here and even then it was the Raul Julia movies. The TV show was on channel 4 at unsociable hours, and were regarded as a pale imitation

Rob's a huge Munsters fan so I'm sure he'll treat it with reverence but he needs to retain the goofiness and keep it from being too "adult".

I think they try to reanimate it every decade since it went off the air in 1966.

There's a version of the Munsters theme that includes lyrics. It made them sound far more menacing than they ever were on the original show, but I wouldn't be surprised if it fits the Zombie reboot.

It's amazing that the Adam's Family (64 episodes) and Munsters (70) original runs weren't that long but somehow live on with attempted reboots that fail every time.

Porous Horace: Addams Family or Munsters - which had the best theme song?


Munsters Theme was never played on an organ between faceoffs at hockey games.

Addams Family Theme never had a piece of its music sampled for a song in homage to Uma Thurman.

Push.

I find it very curious that we never got a crossover. You'd think the Munsters and the Addamses would have similar social circles, and eventually meet up some time.

Yet no. They both met Scooby Doo. They both met Fred Flintstone (sort of). But neither met each other that I'm aware of.

If they're going to do a new movie, it should be about both families coming together. That would be new.
 
2021-04-21 11:17:01 AM  
I may be mistaken about them both meeting Scooby Doo. I don't know.

Either way, you'd think they'd do The Munsters versus The Addams Family, at least, if they aren't going to make them friends. Have them living next door to each other, fighting like neighbors do.
