The Munsters or The Addams Family? Fans of macabre TV comedy have debated that question ever since the two shows originally battled each other during a concurrent two-season run in the mid-1960s.
This weekend, The Munsters has the upper hand, at least in terms of quantity and originality.
Cozi will also feature original “Munster Stomp” segments as well as a repeat of last year’s original “Auto Tune The Munsters” episode.
You can catch The Munsters on Cozi from 1 pm to 7 pm ET on both Saturday and Sunday. For The Addams Family, tune to Antenna TV from 3 am to noon on Sunday.
The “Munster Stomp,” for which Cozi recently filmed a “flash mob” segment in Times Square, is based on the dance that Herman Munster (Fred Gwynne) does in the episode, “Dance With Me, Herman” (Saturday, 1:30 pm). “Auto Tune The Munsters ” (Saturday, 6:30 pm, and Sunday, 1pm) is a revamped “rock opera” version of the episode “A Man for Marilyn” featuring new songs, animation and effects.
Here are videos of the “Munster Stomp”in Times Square and a teaser for last year’s premiere of “Auto Tune”:
The Munsters regularly airs weeknights at 6 pm ET on Cozi TV, and The Addams Family Saturdays at 5 pm and Sundays at 10 am on Antenna TV.
If you’re looking for still more Halloween laughs, another over-the-air channel Laff is running all seven Halloween-themed episodes of Roseanne on the night itself, Monday from 8 pm to 11:30 pm. It’s part of Laff’s launch of the classic Roseanne Barr sitcom, which also includes a marathon of the entire first season on Sunday (12 hours, starting at 1 pm). Beginning on Tuesday, November 1, Roseanne will be seen regularly on Laff Mondays through Saturdays from 9-11 pm. To find where to watch Laff, visit Find Laff TV.
