On "The Munsters Today" the Munster family wakes up after being in a state of suspended sleep for more than 20 years. They regularly run into all sorts of unlikely and humorous situations which often arise when people see them. The house they live in is almost like a haunted museum.

While the appearance of most of the members of the Munster family is enough to scare most people they are really nice and friendly. Even though Herman looks like a monster and Lily and Grandpa are vampires they actually think they look like average people. While their boy Eddie is a werewolf his cousin Marilyn is a normal-looking young woman.

When the members of the Munster family go out in public they often create chaotic scenes without knowing it. When Herman drives the family car down the street other drivers think they're seeing things. If Lily and Grandpa are shopping at the grocery store other shoppers are apt to stop in their tracks or drop their groceries.

Some of the episodes of "The Munsters Today" include Eddie drinking a mind reading potion, the family taking a camping trip, Herman being turned into a human and Marilyn meeting up with a genie.

More than 70 half hour episodes of "The Munsters Today" were produced and the show originally ran in syndication for three seasons.
