It’s been nearly 50 years since the last original episode of The Munsters aired on CBS (the network cancelled the series after two seasons and 70 episodes).
Tonight, COZI TV is airing a special marathon of the monster series and they’re using a classic episode to create Auto Tune The Munsters: A Rock Opera. “A Man for Marilyn” has been reconstructed around five original composed songs that uses dialogue from the show.
The Munsters Marathon Halloween Party airs for 12 hours, starting at noon on Halloween. The special will air at 8pm and 11pm. It was conceived by COZI TV Creative Director Alan Goodman. Composers Paul Rolnick and Jamie Lawrence crafted the original songs. Original animation and effects were created by Dream Machine Creative.
Here are some previews of the special episode as well as some coverage by The Today Show:
