'Munsters' star Yvonne De Carlo dies
By BOB THOMAS, Associated Press Writer
5 minutes ago

Yvonne De Carlo, the beautiful star who played Moses' wife in "The Ten Commandments" but achieved her greatest popularity on TV's slapstick comedy "The Munsters," has died. She was 84.

De Carlo died of natural causes Monday at the Motion Picture & Television facility in suburban Los Angeles, longtime friend and television producer Kevin Burns said Wednesday.

De Carlo, whose shapely figure helped launch her career in B-movie desert adventures and Westerns, rose to more important roles in the 1950s. Later, she had a key role in a landmark Broadway musical, Stephen Sondheim's "Follies."

But for TV viewers, she will always be known as Lily Munster in the 1964-1966 horror-movie spoof "The Munsters." The series (the name allegedly derived from "fun-monsters") offered a gallery of Universal Pictures grotesques, including Dracula and Frankenstein's monster, in a cobwebbed gothic setting.

Very sorry to see her go. I used to rush into the house every day after school just to watch The Munsters. A sad day indeed. :(

She was a great figure in my childhood. We had a monster clubhouse and one of the kids wrote and got a signed picture. All of us were thrilled. Missing her.

That is an awesome memory that you will all carry with you. Little things like that from our childhoods mean so, so much to us.
