The Munsters Escort Santa In Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade (1960)!

A big thank you to Retroist regular, Tom Krohne or Monsterfink, as he is better known over on his Monster Spook Show blog. How can you make a Christmas parade better? Add Santa Claus? Sure. Add the Munsters as his escort? You have the best parade ever!

Thanks to Brainwerk for uploading this Universal Newsreel over on YouTube!

  1. Best line: “They must be fine, clean-cut boys, though, to escort Santa Claus to town!”

    I think I would’ve been more excited to see Fred Gwynne and Al Lewis than Santa.
