Visible crew/equipment: In the first scene of the episode, a crew member is visible through an open door beside the staircase.
Continuity mistake: After Herman breaks through the doors in the opening sequence, the underlying wood over the right side of the hole is plain plywood. When it's Lily's turn to come out, the wood has been stained to match the rest of the door, and Herman's outline is more distinct.
Trivia: Beverly Owen played the part of Marilyn for thirteen episodes believing the show would flop. When The Munsters became a hit, she started crying because of being away from her boyfriend who lived in New York. She was let go and the part of Marilyn went to Pat Priest who had such an uncanny resemblance to Beverly that people watching the show never knew the difference.
Trivia: Fred Gwynne (Herman) in real life was 6 feet 5 inches tall. In order to achieve the character, he was fitted with shoes that were at least four inches thick in the soles. The make up for his face and head added the rest to make him 7 feet 3 inches tall, and the air cooled suit added girth, and weighed 40 to 50 pounds.
