Columnist: Paul Dale Roberts


Paul Dale Roberts and Deanna Jaxine Stinson of Halo Paranormal Investigations chatted to Butch Patrick - the actor who played Eddie Munster in the original 1960s television series 'The Munsters'.

Q: Butch, before we get into this interview, how about telling the readers something personal about yourself. Your family life, your favorite movies, your favorite books, your schooling, your favorite TV shows. Recreational activities and hobbies?

A: I'm single never been married. Twice engaged. My favorite movies are: 2001, Wizard of Oz Monty Python & The Holy Grail. My favorite books: Think and Grow Rich. Richest Man in Babylon. My schooling: Public schools and studio tutors. My hobbies and recreational activities are: traveling, cars, bikes and boating.

Q: Would you consider your days filming with the Munsters the highlight of your life?

A: No, actually when I WASN'T filming was more fun. I had the biggest studio and backlot at my disposal. I had the backlot as my playground. So that was more fun.

Q: Is there any chance that the Munsters will return to TV with new actors and actresses playing the Munsters?

A: No plans on a return in my opinion. Brian Singer and Bryan Fuller tried with Mockingbird Lane in 2013.

Q: How come they never did a crossover with The Munsters and The Addam's Family, that would have been the crossover of the century?

A: As far as a crossover, I doubt the powers that be could ever get it together to do it.

A: Going out on location shoots. Lions Drag Strip, Marineland, Hollywood Bowl, etc.

Q: My wife Deanna is a big fan of the Munsters and has a few questions for you. What is your spiritual beliefs? What is your astrology sign? Have you had any paranormal experiences?

A: I'm a Leo - Aug 2 1953 - I am spiritual, believing in a higher power. Yes, I had a paranormal experience or two.

Q: Let's do some fun questions. If you were on a deserted island, what 3 things would you bring with you?

A: Food, water and a flare gun

Q: If you had 6 dinner guests, 3 historical and 3 fictional, who would they be?

A: Einstein, John Lennon, Elvis, James Bond, Batman, Superman.

Q: How can people contact you? What is your website address?
