Herman Munster inherits the title of Lord Munster and the estate of his English uncle so the family visit England but their presence isn’t welcomed by their dastardly English relatives.
TV shows very rarely make for good movies, with only a few notable exceptions such as Batman making the transition successfully. And Batman is an apt example as it was the full colour adventures of the Caped Crusader and Boy Wonder that put an end to the creaky black-and-white escapades of The Munsters TV show back in 1966 after two series.
