Patrick slams Munsters plans

The former child star, who played Eddie Munster in the 1960s TV show, is outraged by reports suggesting bosses at America’s Universal studios are working on a new series based on the original programme, which starred Fred Gwynne and Yvonne De Carlo.

And Patrick is adamant a new format will not be popular with viewers.

He tells, “Honestly, it should be left alone. I think it shows they are desperate for content. Unless they get (U.S. comic) Brad Garrett to play Herman, it’s not going to do well.”
