Eddie Munster Slaughters 'Munsters' Remake

10/3/2010 8:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Some things should just stay dead ... according to the guy who played the original Eddie Munster -- who is definitely not happy with reports that his iconic show is getting remade for TV.

TMZ spoke with 57-year-old Butch Patrick -- the original werewolf boy from the '60s series -- who just heard that NBC is working on resurrecting the monster fam for a new pilot.

Patrick tells us, "Honestly, it should be left alone" -- adding, "I think it shows they are desperate for content."

Despite the criticism, O.G. Eddie Munster did have a casting suggestion for the NBC execs -- saying, "Unless they get Brad Garrett to play Herman, it's not going to do well."

Of course he's not happy. He's making 10$ a signing at ****ty car shows that have a bunch of hacked up looking movie cars and his fat ass is there with I WAS EDDIE MUNSTER signs and GET AN AUTOGRAPH FOR 10$.. Like who in 2010 wants an autograph from that fat slob?? Even the crackwhores were walking past him saying 'no thanks' .. F him and the Munstermobile he rode in on.

If they are going to remake it, and they shouldn't, it should be Neil Flynn. He just looks like Fred Gwynne

Bet if they offered him a part he'd be all for it. Looks like he could play Grandpa to me.

I couldn't agree with him more. Just look at the Addams Family movies; totally killed that one, and not in a good way.

What a pig! Just heard he cheated on his fiancee. Good for her for throwing him out. Wasn't his 15 minutes of fame up - say- 50 years ago!
