Actor, basketball scout, Green Party candidate and radio personality (among other things) Al Lewis died Friday. He was, of course, best known for his portrayal of "Grandpa" on The Munsters. Loved the surfer-esque theme song!
One semi-interesting note: the Munsters house is actually on the same "street" as the homes used on Desperate Housewives. They are just careful to avoid filming angles where it might appear in a scene.
