THE MINI-MUNSTERS (1973) – This children’s cartoon version of The Munsters originally aired on October 27th, 1973 as one of the hour-long (including commercials) episodes of the second season of ABC’s Saturday Superstar Movie.

You can judge for yourself because no less than THREE versions of The Mini-Munsters are available online: The original 44-minute version in color, the half-hour version in color AND a black & white version of the 44-minute original.
