In-Depth

DVD and Blu-ray Releases

The series was first released in two season sets, each with three double-sided discs, and the two films Munster, Go Home! and The Munsters' Revenge were later released in a double-feature DVD.

Following that, a complete series set was released which featured single-sided discs and included all of the contents of the two season sets as well as a colorized version of the episode "Family Portrait" (which was also released on DVD by itself) and both of the films. The discs from the complete series were then re-released in two separate season sets.
