Now that we know the two pinball machines will exist. Just wanted to see a poll on pinside regarding the better TV show.
I always thought Munsters were like the Go Bots and Addams Family like the Transformers. Both are similar, but one had more originality first then the other. I don't know maybe I'm not giving the Munsters enough credit?
Just wanted to see other interests and why. Thanks

Munsters were monsters who were trying to live like us, Adams Family were just weird

Addams by a mile.

I prefer the Addams family but the munsters was quite funny at times.

I think I was 8 or 9 when both shows aired a bunch in B&W and much much preferred the Munsters at that age. That said, anything is better than the Munsters in color

I voted Addams for the TV show. Love "Munster Go Home" movie though.

Both were great shows at the time. We didn’t have a lot of choices back then.

Every once in a while I’ll come across a rerun, I still laugh my a$$ off. Just simple, good humor.

For me, it’s a tie on which one was better to watch. Both really entertaining.

Munsters was funny but Addams was just more fun to watch.

I agree. Even though they both premiered the same year, for some reason I always viewed The Munsters as an inferior Addam's Family wannabe. Same with Bewitched and I Dream of Genie. Bewitched was just so much better in almost every way.

For me it was sort of old humor vs new humor? I had to look up the years, I would have thought Munsters was like 5 years earlier. Very car 54 era comedy which obviously makes sense. Addams is much weirder.

Munsters for the cars. Addams Family for Gomez's model train crashes.

#13 1 year ago

Both great shows I think I might enjoy watching the Munsters a bit more though.

Addams...only because of Fester. Love that guy!

Thing Rocked!

After the "Beast with 5 Fingers" scared the crap out of me, Thing and his bank were on my desk for years....

1,000% Munsters for
Tv. 1,000,000% Addams for movie. And so far (and, playing the odds, also for pinball)

For the record, Iron maiden is one of my favourite bands but I’d trade it for a Munsters. Except I already have Monster Bash, soooo...

Munster's Theme was hands down the best especially 2.0. The cars were bad ass too. Spot was my favorite pet and that Raven kept me laughing. Also loved it when Grandpa would Blow Up the Lab! Love em both, but I am more of a Munster's Guy.

That was such an awesome toy!

I can barely remember either one. But I like the one where the dude blew up the same train set every week.

Adams had a scarier feel to it. Munsters had more humor with a 60's vibe.

Munsters by far. Best one I remember was when Herman and Grampa go to the drag strip.
