    Lost Al Lewis after 90 years.......a BIG part of my influence in that show...who can forget the show where he wins back the Koach by building and racing the Dragula?

    That show was a big influence in my life as well. I once built a VW powered trike called the "Trike-U-La" based on that show. Sad. Very sad indeed.

    A friend of mine got kicked off the Jenny Jones show because Mr Lewis was making lewd comments toward her.

    He noticed her incredible rack and had to comment on it. :)

    RIP big fella! :(

    Aw man. This is a bummer.

    I loved that show and still do.

    There's nothing like watching it on a cold rainy night.

    Thanks, Grampa! I enjoyed your work.

    I pretty much don't have a favorite anything (band, car etc...), but the Munsters is my favorite TV show hands down. Howard stern always said great things about Al.
    Wheres the Dragula? I wanna go for a ride.
    Look its Eddy and Grampa!
