Fabulous Collectibles from TV’s First Family of Monsters
One of the most beloved TV shows of all Monster Kid-dom, The Munsters had a limited run of 2 seasons and one movie. But decades of syndication and a classic monsters aura that outlived the 60s has kept this show at the forefront of classic monster collectibles. In fact, the Lily Munster maquette by Tweeterhead was nominated for best last year’s Rondo Awards – read our article on this lovely statue from earlier this year.
This episode of Monsterama spotlights many of the original 1960s merchandise for the series and brings us to modern day collectibles. As a life-long fan who grew up watching The Munsters reruns after school, I’m have a real warm spot in my collection for anything Munsters related; including this episode of Monsterama:
Found on Amazon: Genuine LINEN BACKED 27″ x 41″ U.S. ONE SHEET VINTAGE ORIGINAL MOVIE POSTER from 1966. Issued by the studio when the film was released and meant for theatrical display. Condition: Excellent-Near Mint C8-C9. Very minimal typical fold line touch up/restoration. Looks beautiful! Well preserved.
