    In the episode "Follow That Munster", Herman let's Grandpa know that he is taking a correspondence course on how to become a private detective. Grandpa reads the address of the "school", which is in Mexico. After reading the address, Grandpa looks at Herman and says "My son-in-law, the wetback detective." There's no way that line would get on the air today (except maybe on HBO or Showtime)!

    Yeah I also agree, that line wouldn't be played on tv. They probably just edit it out with a sound or *bleep* it out.

    They keep the line in whenever they rerun it. I'm just saying that I don't think they'd put a line like that on if "The Munsters" were being made today.
