Niles, IL (PRWEB) September 8, 2004
The Munsters, AmericaÂs most frighteningly funny family, have continued to attract some of the most loyal television program fans over the past 40 years, a pretty impressive feat considering the show only ran for 70 episodes. Similar to the characters on The Munsters, these fans arenÂt your normal fans who are satisfied merely watching the syndicated programs on television. Oleg Krylov who grew up with The Munsters says, ÂWe Munsters fans are nearly as wacky as the characters themselvesÂ. The term enthusiastic is an understatement for The Munsters fans, some of whom have even gone to the great lengths of building homes that are exact replicas of the Munsters house as well as cars that look exactly like Grandpa's coffin-shaped "Dragula" dragster.
Fans celebrate The Munsters 40th year at 1313 Mockingbird Lane this September, with the introduction of the first ever, The Munsters Halloween themed village. Authorized by Universal Studios and available only from Hawthorne Village, this new Munsters collectible is one of the most anticipated items for avid Munster fans everywhere. Friends will be as green as Herman when they catch a glimpse of The Munsters Halloween Village that features character figurines, spooky sound effects, and eerie glowing lights. Free highly collectible character figurines of Herman, Lily, Grandpa and Eddie, are included along with a 6- piece jack-oÂ-lantern lamplight set, a $65.00 value.
Not all of The Munsters fans have room for a life-size version of GrandpaÂs ÂDragulaÂ dragster, the ghoulish car designed by George Barris. However they can still show their loyalty with an Ertl die-cast collectible version by Hamilton Authenticated. The 1:18 scale model features a ÂcoffinÂ body on a tube chassis, radiator, tombstone grille, bat-shaped forced air scoops, and metal organ exhaust pipes just like those on GrandpaÂs original ÂDragulaÂ dragster.
