collecting insurance money. Do you even need to ask who they get? (HERMAN) They try this many times
such as having Herman get hit by a car. The only problem is instead of getting hurt; when the car
runs into Herman it is totaled. While doing this Herman gets a big ego on being a movie star.
Meanwhile, the police are looking for these people because they know what they are capable of.

is no room; only the pavement 10 stories below. Herman realizes what they want to do and scares the
two man so much they run out the door and fall to the street below.

Durocher, the manager of the Dodgers. When Mr. Durocher finds out how far the ball park is,
he wants to recruit whoever hit it. He finds Herman and signs him up for the team. Herman
plays baseball in front of Mr. Durocher--convincing him that maybe he wouldn't be the
greatest asset.
Synopsis 2:
This episode starts out with Herman and Eddie spending quality time together. He shows Eddie
how to hit a ball, but when he hits the ball eight blocks, he hit the manager of the Dodgers
on the head. Leo Durocher is so impress he wants Herman to play for the Dodgers. Down at the
stadium, Herman is finding it hard to fit in. First of all he hit a ground ball so hard it
puts a hole in the shortstop's glove. He destroys the fence in Centerfield, blows a hole in the
field, and the players are so intimidated, that they want to go back to the minors. Herman is
disappointed when the Dodgers refuse to sign him. They had two main reasons. First: It would
cost them $75,000 to repair the Stadium, everytime Herman played. Second: The Dodgers would
need insurance for the rest of the team when Herman played. Lily is glad to have her pussycat again.

Herman arrives home from work only to discover his Uncle Cavanough, from England, has passed away.
He soon finds out from the will, that he has inherited his uncle's entire estate, lands and properties,
making him Lord Munster, fifth Earl of Shroudshire! Little do the Munsters know though, that their
other relatives in England would prefer Freddie Munster to be Lord Munster. Uncle Cavanough bestowed
everything to Herman to take his revenge out on his hated son Freddie. The Munsters arrive in England
by boat, bringing along the Koach. The American Munsters soon find out everyone in the town hates
them because of the British ones' reputation. What's a Munster to do? Aunt Effigie, Uncle Cavanough's
wife, convinces Herman to enter the Shroudshire Road Race. Sadly, this is all part of a master plan
to do in Herman, and win the title of Lord Munster back to Freddie. Plenty of other secrets are abound,
including a counterfeit ring, and an unknown person called "The Griffin"!
