Edward "Eddie" Wolfgang Munster is the lone son and child of Herman and Lily Munster. He is half vampire, and half werewolf. His skin is light greenish bluish and he has pointed ears and fangs. He is your average grade-schooler. He plays with his friends, and invites them over to meet the family. One of them, Googie, turned out to be trouble. He often idolizes Herman as the greatest "insert title here" (drag racer, magician, baseball player, etcetera).
He has won many ribbons for running track, and an award for his robot in the science fair. He has his favorite pet, Spot, in which he cares for and plays with. He sometimes gets in trouble, though, when leaving Spot's jumbo sized, 4 feet tall dog food cans lying about. He gets along pretty well with his cousin Marilyn, and loves doing stuff with Grandpa.
Grandpa has shown Eddie many neat things, and is always willing to help Eddie. Sometimes, as in the time Grandpa wanted to make Eddie grow six inches over night, things go wrong. Eddie grew a beard instead. Grandpa has also shrunk him about 6 inches high, and turned him into a girl! For a short time, Eddie had a robot playmate named Boris. He moved to some relatives however. Lily knows Eddie as her little baby, as any mother, and Herman feels he can mold Eddie into anything.
