The Munsters, The Adams Family and Bewitched all came out on TV at the exact same time (the same week, believe it or not).
The Munsters, of course got better ratings than Adams Family, because it was more fun.
Herman Munster is believed to be the first gay sitcom star. You could not have a gay character as the lead 1964, but an effeminate Frankenstein was apparently OK with the network.
Quoted from HighVoltage:
Yet all credible sources with a synopsis of this character mysteriously make no mention of this!
When the network saw that there was no backlash about a gay Frankenstein, that opened the door to the most over-the-top gay of any TV character of the 60s:
Dr Smith from Lost In Space
Have you ever seen what Comcast tries to pass as local HD channels compared to what comes free from a regular antenna?
Comcast is HDlite
Quoted from DS_Nadine:
What is the "story" of the game, aka is there a(ny) story to speak of?
Pinsiders have been asking for a Munsters for 8 years.
Stern listened, and answered their prayers.

Ever since Future Spa, 93.1% of all successful pins are a fan layout.
Might as well get used to it.
Quoted from Blacksun:
Should we email NOW distributors and Stern and complain about pulling this fast one in LE owners. - If it is officially announced by Stern I will be calling.
Stern making an extra 100 LEs will allow them to make an extra quarter of a million dollars.
That will be good bank when the economy tanks latter this year.
If it keeps Stern in business, it's a good thing!
Other than Transformers, you don't see many LEs sitting around unsold.
Stern added the 100 because of overwhelming demand.
If you cancel yours (as you should), there are lots of other Pinheads waiting to snatch it.
Quoted from Amused_to_Death:
Kaneda is doing some backtracking on his latest podcast... so all of the arguing and complaining about additional LEs may end up being for nothing.
You know the K-gland is laughing his ass off on getting you guys all fired up again.
"I only buy LEs, but now I'm never buying another Stern again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
"It's UNETHICAL !!!!!!!!!!!"
"Stern is pure business, nothing else!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
"If we all stop buying LEs, the Stern Shutdown will teach them a lesson!!!!!!!"
"I have a dog named Spot!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
I just got off the phone with Gary.
He says Stern is considering giving a coupon for a free pedicure to the first 500 Pinside LE buyers; so everyone is properly pampered.
Quoted from jawjaw:
I don't get how prices have shot up so much in the last 5 years or so but they have.
Stern was rescued & purchased by a group of investors (some of the same guys that saved Harley Davidson )
If they see another company (JJP) selling the same product at 2x the price, they are not going to let Stern leave money on the table.
All you pinheads rush out and buy each new release, without even playing it.
Stern would be fools to not keep jacking up the price every few months; no one is pushing back.
