Rob Zombie Celebrates The Munsters' 57-Year Anniversary


Recommended Posts

Horror filmmaker and musician Rob Zombie is celebrating the 57th anniversary of The Munsters TV series. Originally conceived of as an animated series, The Munsters enabled Universal to put its cast of classic movie monsters to use in a new way. Following the ups and downs of a friendly monster family at their home in the fictional Mockingbird Heights neighborhood, The Munsters only lasted two seasons but secured a loyal fanbase.

Oddly enough, during its brief run, The Munsters managed to perform reasonably well, even securing a Golden Globe nomination for best television series in 1965. It was the arrival of the Batman TV series in 1966, however, that many feel spelled the end for The Munsters. The newly arrived superhero series was a dominant force that the likes of Herman and Lily Munster simply couldn’t contend with. Nonetheless, The Munsters found new life in syndication and its following continued to grow in subsequent years. In the same year that the series was cancelled (1966), the feature film Munster, Go Home! was released, allowing fans their first glimpse at the spooky family in color. The film didn’t make a huge impact at the box office, but today it stands as the sole theatrically released adaptation of The Munsters.

Of course, fans of Zombie, as well as fans of The Munsters, are currently well aware that the 56-year-old is now working on his own big-screen adaptation of the franchise. As work continues on the production, Zombie has remained active on his Instagram account, keeping fans up to date with all the latest Munsters happenings. His most recent social media update informs fans that September 24th is the exact date that The Munsters first premiered on CBS, which means that it’s officially been 57 years to the date since the series arrived:

Fifty-seven years is indeed a very long time for a single franchise to exist. What’s more, The Munsters have really seen no evolution over the years and so Zombie’s adaptation essentially marks the first opportunity for the IP to re-invent itself. That being said, it’s hard to say if Zombie is at all interested in taking things in a new direction while remaining faithful to The Munsters’ past. To date, every indication that Zombie has given regarding his adaptation is that he plans to remain very faithful to the original and his love for the series has been abundantly clear right from the start. What this could mean, then, is that Zombie isn’t interested in creating a modern franchise and instead just wants to make a one-and-done nostalgia vehicle.

Then again, Zombie has been a filmmaker for long enough now to understand that a successful franchise wields a great deal of power. If he loves The Munsters as much as he says he does, then it only makes sense that he would want to return for a sequel if the opportunity presented itself. But regardless of what his plans are for the upcoming film, the most important thing for fans and Zombie alike is that his film is a good one.
