Put this on Munster’s has the following synopsis:
From writer/director Rob Zombie comes the strangest love story ever told. Lily is just your typical 150-year-old vampire in love looking for the man of her nightmares. . . that is until she sees Herman, a seven-foot-tall green experiment with a heart of gold. It’s love at first sight as these two ghouls drop fangs over their feet in this wacky Transylvanian romance. Unfortunately, things don’t go smoothly at the cemetery, as Lily’s father, the Count, has other plans for his beloved daughter’s future, and they don’t involve her bumbling beau, Herman. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll howl at the moon as The Munsters make their way to Mockingbird Lane!

Munster’s ran for two seasons, from September 1964 to May 1966, and consisted of 70 episodes. (You can buy the entire series at THIS LINK.) Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Zombie said his film Munster’s is”100 percent in the spirit of the show. I wouldn’t want it to be any different. I totally wanted to keep the vibe that it had in the 60s.” His commitment to preserving the spirit of the show is evident in the film PG rating to “macabre and suggestive material, frightening images and language”.
