The Munsters star Butch Patrick has criticized plans to bring the creepy comedy family back to TV - insisting a new version of the classic show is "not going to do well."

The former child star, who played Eddie Munster in the 1960s TV show, is outraged by reports suggesting bosses at Universal studios are working on a new series based on the original program, 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 Brad Garrett to play Herman, it's not going to do well."
