The Munsters Today was the first TV series made to attempt a reboot of the The Munsters in popular culture. It featured none of the original cast members of The Munsters, even though Fred Gwynne was offered the part of Herman Munster for the TV series, of which he turned down. Although Al Lewis wanted to reprise the role of Grandpa for the series, he was denied and Howard Morton filled the part instead. However, because the movie, The Munsters' Revenge, used many of the series original cast members, and this series omits the events of that movie, the series is typically considered a reboot rather than continuation of the original series. It should be noted there is nothing keeping either the movie or this series from occurring in the same "universe."

The Munsters Today Unaired Pilot

The Munsters fall into a 20 year long sleep in 1966 after one of Grandpa's inventions puts them into an ageless sleep by accident. Finally in 1988 a group of developers who want to demolish the Munster Mansion stumble into Grandpa's lab and wake the Munsters up. The Munsters then have trouble fitting in a different time and the different culture of the 1980's.
