1. Bring happiness to others. As Herman says, “It’s nice to know as we go through life we can bring a little happiness to others.”[2]

2. Appreciate nature. “It’s a good idea every once in a while for the Munsters to get out and meet nature face to face.”[2]

3. Don’t be conceited or vain. “Lots of so-called heroes are just conceited vain good-for-nothing.”[2]

4. Plan for the future. Regarding saving for college, Herman advises, “We should start planning now, set a little bit aside every year.”[2]

5. Use love and affection. “You’ll find you’ll make a lot more headway with a little bit of love and affection.”[2]

6. Respect your elders. When Eddie plays a prank, Herman says, “Back in the old country, if I had done something like this, my father would have bit my head off.”[2]

7. Be mindful of the company you keep. “If you go with bad companions, some of it is bound to rub off on you.”[2]

8. Uphold the law. “It’s the duty of every citizen to protect the police.”[2]

9. Be ethical in business dealings. “In the great vegetable market of life, I have never been one to pinch the tomatoes.”[2]

10. Help others succeed. “If we can’t help a young man up the ladder of success, we’re pretty sorry excuses for human beings.”[2]

11. Practice kindness. “Being kind to people is like investing money in the bank. When we put kindness in, we get kindness back with interest.”[2]

12. Judge by character, not appearance. “It doesn’t matter what you look like…what does matter is the size of your heart and the strength of your character.”[2]

These life lessons from the wise and kind-hearted Herman Munster emphasize values like happiness, respect, ethics, kindness, and looking beyond superficial appearances – timeless wisdom that still resonates today.
