Herman finds out that his family has won a contest, organized by Event Magazine, as the American Average Family of the year. The prize includes $5,000 dollars, and in order to win the money the magazine must send two reporters, to make an article and take some pictures of the family. Every member of the family must appear in the family portrait, and things got complicated when Grandpa says that he'll be out of the house. Herman gets furious with Grandpa, and demands him to stay with the family, in order to get the money prize. But Grandpa has made up his mind and that day he disappears. Herman, Lily and Marilyn are looking for him desperately, but there's no signal of Grandpa inside of the house. Herman and Lily decide to go out and look for Grandpa, in the places most frequented by him. They go to a restaurant, they look at the square, but nothing. Meanwhile, Marilyn receives the two reporters in the house. One of them begins to flirt with Marilyn, while the other starts to feel scared when he sees estrange things in the house, like Eddie playing or even Grandpa, who in fact never left the house and was hided in the basement. Herman and Lily return without success. During the night, the reporters are trying to get some sleep, but the scared one gets up for a glass of water and when he sees Herman and Lily walking in their pajamas by the corridor, he feels more scared and with his fellow begins to explore the house. However, when they bump into Herman, Lily and Grandpa, they run away from the house, despite the warnings of the magazine director, about returning without the average family story. Next day, the Munsters family portrait appears in the cover of the magazine. But there's a little detail, because in the cover says that this average family likes to celebrate Halloween every day of the year. —Alejandro Frias

List of The Munsters characters
Wikimedia list article
The following is a list of recurring characters in the CBSsitcomThe Munsters and other related projects.
The Munsters' pets
- Igor - Grandpa's pet Transylvanianbat. He is often seen flying around the mansion, especially in Grandpa's basement, where he often serves as a guinea pig. His feelings are easily hurt, inducing him to fly away. On occasion, Grandpa in bat form has been mistaken for Igor.
- Spot - Eddie's pet dinosaur, sometimes referred to as Spotty, whose lair is under the stairs. Although some say Spot is a dragon, shots of both his tail as well as shadows of his torso clearly indicate that he is a fire-breathing version of a stegosaurus. There are tunnels that go from Spot's lair to the Munsters' backyard. Spot has a hobby of chasing cars, which sometimes ends with him catching them. He has a battle-axe scar on his shoulder and spouts fire from his nostrils. When he leaves his lair, only his tail can usually be seen. The 13th episode of Season 2, entitled "Underground Munster", features Spot running away after Herman punishes him by tapping him on the tail with a newspaper while admonishing, "Naughty, naughty, naughty!" for leaving muddy footprints on the floor, after which he's mistaken for a dangerous monster when he is sighted in the sewer. Herman goes down the manhole to search for Spot but is also mistaken for a dangerous monster. In "Far Out Munsters," Spot's shadow outline is seen, giving viewers more detail as to what Spot's body looks like. The only episode in which more of his tail is seen occurs in the episode "Lily's Star Boarder", where we see the other parts of the tail that hadn't been seen before. Despite his fearsome demeanor, Spot is "afraid of his own shadow", and, adds Herman, "and I don't blame him." While Butch Patrick claimed that Spot was recycled from the Tyrannosaurus model from One Million B.C., Spot was actually designed by Fred Gwynne and Al Lewis and assembled by some builders. Some sources claim that Spot was actually a dinosaur model from The Land Unknown. In "The Munsters Today," Spot's presence in the show is usually depicted by his fire breath emerging from the entrance to his lair. Also in the show, Spot's tail was shown in a redesigned form. In 1313 Mockingbird Lane, Spot was shown in CGI where he has the appearance of a wing-armed dragon.
- Charlie the Raven (voiced by Mel Blanc and occasionally by Bob Hastings) - A raven who lives in the Munsters' cuckoo clock and repeats the word "Nevermore." When the raven occasionally makes smart-aleck remarks, Herman throws objects at him. Sometimes, the raven will come out of his clock, but often only for short breaks or to flee when frightened.
- Kitty - A black cat that roars like a lion.
Edward Howard Dudley, M.D., (portrayed by Paul Lynde in three episodes, Dom DeLuise in "Just Another Pretty Face") is the Munsters' family doctor. Dr. Dudley is one of the few characters who has learned to tolerate the Munsters. Dr. Dudley is extremely nearsighted (and sometimes prefers to have his glasses off when examining members of the family). His secretary and nurse is Ms. Fairchild (portrayed by Alice Backes). Dr. Dudley and his wife (portrayed by Marilyn Lovell) have a son named Elmer Dudley (portrayed by Peter Robbins) who becomes Eddie's playmate.
Mr. Gateman (portrayed by John Carradine) is the undertaker in charge of the Gateman, Goodbury, and Gravesfuneral home (while the name indicates three owners, the company appears to be a sole proprietorship) where Herman works. Mr. Gateman is one of the few "ordinary" humans not taken aback by the Munsters' appearance and habits (Mr. Gateman seems to be human in form but not in substance, like the characters of the competitor Addams Family). On two occasions, Mr. Gateman fires Herman, the first of which occurring when Herman asks for a raise. Lily helps regain his job by convincing Mr. Gateman of Herman's value to the company. Herman is almost fired again, but Mr. Gateman has a change of heart.
Clyde Thornton (portrayed by Chet Stratton) is Herman's co-worker at the funeral home. When first introduced, Clyde is continuously tricking and ridiculing Herman into one of his practical jokes until Herman finally stands up to him and Clyde gets caught in one of his own traps. After settling their differences, in "Cyrano De Munster", Clyde uses Herman's poems to woo the girl of his dreams. When she finds out that Clyde is not the one writing the poems, she rejects him and inquires about Herman. After finally seeing Herman, the girl screams and runs away. Angry at seeing his dream girl so frightened, Clyde punches Herman in the jaw and consequently breaks his own hand. Like most of Herman's co-workers, Clyde does not seem to notice anything unusual about Herman's appearance, although he is impressed (and intimidated) by Herman's super-strength.
Mrs. Yolanda "Yo-yo" Cribbins (portrayed by Claire Carleton) is the Munsters' neighbor. When the Munsters refer to a neighbor, it is often Mrs. Cribbins. Mrs. Cribbins is a fiftyish widow who lives in the house to the left of the Munsters'. Mrs. Cribbins has built a barbed wire fence between her yard and the Munsters' yard. Unlike some of the Munsters' other neighbors, she knows very little about them personally but is aware that the family is partially vampiric. In "My Fair Munster" Mrs. Cribbins drinks a philtre concocted by Grandpa and falls in love with the mailman Warren Bloom (portrayed by John Fiedler) who is also wary of the Munsters, to the extent that he wears the supposed vampire repellent garlic during his rounds.
Howie Buchanan (portrayed by Richard Steven Horvitz) is a teenager exclusive to The Munsters Today who is best friends with Marilyn and is one of a few people who can tolerate the Munsters.
Dee Dee Nelson
Dee Dee Nelson (portrayed by Mary Cadorette) is a woman who is exclusive to The Munsters Today. She is the wife of a plastic surgeon.

One of an unknown number of near misses before the successful creation of Herman and Charlie, survived in the Transylvanian woods for over 150 years, where he frightened young maidens.

Katja left her daughter and husband when Lily was very young due to a "having to get away", but she came back, trying reconcile. Eventually, she left again before this could be official.

- Lily's Grandma - She is Lily's unnamed grandmother who died for the umpteenth time in 1964 and left Lily an inheritance of $5,000.00.
- Great Grandmother Medusa - She is Lily's great grandmother who was a famous cook back in her day. In The Munsters Today episode "Vampire Pie," Grandpa mentioned that nobody who tried her Transylvanian Surprise ever lived to regret it. It later turned out that Great Grandmother Medusa's Transylvanian Surprise also had bat milk (harvested from the bats in the Munsters' attic) which was the antidote to prevent anyone who ate Transylvanian Surprise from turning into ducks.
- Unseen Cousin - In one episode of The Munsters Today, Herman states that one of Lily's cousins is a mermaid.
In later adaptations of The Munsters, other relatives were provided:
- Leonard - Grandpa's long-time skeleton friend ever since college in medieval times. He appears in every episode of The Munsters Today.

- Cousin Wolfgang - A cousin of the Munsters who is mentioned in the animated special The Mini-Munsters. He is the father of twins Igor and Lucretia (who do not look much alike).
- Igor and Lucretia - Two teenage cousins of the Munsters who appear in The Mini-Munsters. They are the twin children of the Munsters' cousin Wolfgang.
