Did You Know?


The characters state clearly that Dr. Willoughby, who examines Eddie, is nearsighted; however, it is obvious that the glasses he is wearing would make his vision WORSE, not better. He is wearing glasses with convex lenses, which are prescribed to farsighted patients. See more »


Herman Munster: Hey, maybe our little Eddie's found out about the birds and the bees. I know I didn't sleep for two weeks when hen I found out that their making honey was just a sideline.

Eddie has a tonsillectomy
5 October 2018 | by Jimmy_the_Gent4See all my reviews

Eddie has his tonsil removed and Herman and Grandpa try to sneak in his hospital room.

There are a lot of laughs in this one. It has a running gag of Herman fainting every time he looks at Eddie's tonsils. There are some funny scenes of near sighted Dr Willoughby giving Eddie an examination. There are also some funny pop culture references to Father Knows Best, Donna Reed and Pat Boone. When Herman and Grandpa sneak into the hospital, Herman is mistaken for an accident victim and they give him some laughing gas, making him act even goofier than usual.
