The Munsters was a popular sitcom that aired on CBS between 1964 and 1966. The show featured the macabre Munster Family, made up of versions of various horror characters. The show was very similar in tone to The Addams Family, which aired in the same time frame, which was airing on competing ABC.
The Munsters was filmed at Universal Studios in Hollywood, and interior scenes were shot on soundstages. The house used for exterior shots was originally built for the film So Goes My Love. In 1964 the Victorian style house was converted to the Munster Mansion, and given spooky and decrepit look. The fictional address of the house was 1313 Mockingbird Lane.
After the filming of The Munsters concluded, the house was transformed back to a traditional Victorian style facade. The house was also moved to Universal’s Colonial Street, and featured in a number of other productions like The ‘Burbs and Desperate Housewives.
The house facade still stands today, and can be seen on Universal’s Backlot Tram Tour. It is located across the street from the Leave It To Beaver movie house. Unless there is some filming that prevents the tour from visiting the Colonial Street, it is generally always included on the tour.
