Marilyn is such a classic comic element of The Munsters. For those who haven't seen the show, Marilyn is the adopted niece of Lily Munster who comes to live with her monsterous family. She is, in fact, beautiful and charming, but her suitors always run away, leading her to believe she is abnormal and ugly. The constant gag being that her quirkily eerie family are always the culprits in chasing the young men away. I wouldn't be suprized if this plot element was inspired by the classic Twilight Zone Eye of the Beholder episode from 1960. Marilyn is the least vampy lady in my Halloween lineup, but she's new (just released last week!) and The Munsters are undeniably halloweenie. I'm very impressed with this figure. I felt that the prototypes made her look so much older than she is meant to be (I thought she actually looked like the lovely Cheryl Hines to be honest). But in person she has that bubbly 20-something look I was hoping for.
