    Al Lewis' Prop Bag from "The Munsters." The Munsters and its "rival" series, The Addams Family both debuted within a week of one another in September, 1964. At the end of that year's TV season, The Munsters ranked #18 in the Nielsens, while The Addams Family came in at #23; by the end of the following year, both had been were cancelled. Nevertheless, both found renewed life in syndication and have entertained generations of sitcom fans. This black doctor-style leather carrying bag was regularly used by Al Lewis (who died earlier this year) in his role as "Grandpa" on the series, typically as a running sight-gag in which he would pull all sorts of sundry items from it -- including many that logically shouldn't have fit. It is in Fine condition with a fair amount of wear and tear and some mild to moderate discoloration. A real TV-land treasure. Accompanied by COA from L.A. Prop & Wardrobe Co.
