The Munsters’ Theme (with lyrics)
by Jack Marshall & Bob Mosher
Everybody loves The Munsters’ foot stompin’ surfy theme, but Jack Marshall’s tune actually had some lyrics to go with. Written by the show’s producer Bob Mosher, this version of the theme was never featured on the show.
However, thanks to the album At Home With the Munsters, fans are given a chance to hear this more typical sounding theme.
It may be a little slower, and definitely not better, but it does feature some clever lyrics and even a nod to our hallowed holiday. Shindig approved!
I led the track it with a clip from The Munsters’ Revenge, a TV movie produced in 1981 which actually takes place around Halloween, and features The Munsters at 2 different Halloween parities. Finally.
Because, every evening is Halloween, at The Munsters’!
