The Munsters visit Marineland was Shot on videotape in 1965 as a TV special and was essentially used as marketing for Marineland. The special was thought to have been lost to time and poorly kept archives, with only a single commercial for the broadcast remaining. It aired only once on Easter Sunday, April 18, 1965 and wasn't seen in over 50 years. Some insisted that it was lost forever. Then the Munsters’ famous appearance on CBS’s 1965 Marineland Carnival reemerged and rose from the ashes (as Grandpa would from a deep sleep) to our world as a worn out kinescope print was unearthed. Unfortunately this copy was donated to the Paley Center in New York in 1997 where it sat for close to 20 years before being re-discovered in 2014 for public viewing FINALLY at the Paley Center. A copy then clandestinely made its way to the internet through Youtube and other video and torrent services.
The Munsters famous appearance on the CBS 1965 Marineland Carnival was written and produced independently from the original Universal writing and production teams, and due to contractual agreements at Universal, CBS booked The Munsters cast separately so the actors never appeared in the credits.
Now for the first time ever Marineland Carnival with the appearances of the original cast members Fred Gwynne (Herman), Yvonne De Carlo (Lily), Al Lewis (Grandpa), Pat Priest (Marilyn) and Butch Patrick (Eddie) will be coming to us on DVD, along with other lost Munsters treasures.
Included on the DVD will be the hour-long Marineland Carnival 1965 special starring the Munsters, along with the 1966 full color Munsters themed episode of The Danny Kaye Show featuring Fred Gwynne as Herman, other items on the dvd will be classic talk show interviews with The Munsters family, and the all new Munster Memories with Butch Patrick.
The new Marineland Carnival with The Munsters will be released Just in time for Halloween on October 4, 2022 from MPI Home Video.
