The Munsters TV series only lasted two years, but one of the smartest things Universal studio did was green light a movie using the actors, sets and custom cars one more time. This allowed the characters to be slid into various Creature Double Feature shows around the country that also showed Universal’s classic monster movies. If the station wasn’t showing The Munsters on the weekdays, people saw Munster, Go Home! with Dracula, Frankenstein and The Wolf Man. Eventual this leads to people asking the station to show more of The Munsters. Even today Munster, Go Home! plays on MeTV’s Svengoolie. Plus the movie allowed devoted viewers a chance to see the monster cast in full color. Now Munster, Go Home! is coming to Blu-ray thanks to Scream Factory. The movie takes the Munster family across the ocean when Herman hits the inheritance lottery. Here’s the press release from Scream Factory with details about the bonus features:
