christmas manger webStudies show that the time of year that produces the most babies is summer, with August leading the way. I’m no expert, but I disagree with them.

Munsters webThe Munsters 
originally aired on Thursday at 7:30 pm on CBS from September 24, 1964, to May 12, 1966; 70 episodes were produced. It was canceled after ratings dropped to a series low, due to the premiere of ABC’s Batman, which was in color. Though ratings were low during its initial two-year run, The series was a satire of both traditional monster movies starring Fred Gwynne as Frankenstein’s monster-type head-of-the-household Herman Munster, Yvonne De Carlo as his vampire wife, Lily Munster, Al Lewis as Grandpa.

Fun Facts
Grandpa (played by Al Lewis, born in 1923) was one year younger than his “daughter” Lily (played by Yvonne De Carlo, born in 1922). Herman was the youngest adult (played by Fred Gwynne, born in 1926).
The show was shot in black and white because the studio did not want to pay an extra $10,000 per episode for color.
The character ‘Herman Munster’ was ranked #19 in TV Guide’s list of the “50 Greatest TV Dads of All Time” (20 June 2004 issue).
This series’ title was supposedly derived from combining the words “fun” and “monsters”.
The name of the funeral parlor Herman worked for was Gateman, Goodbury and Graves.
