MOST WOMEN WHO GET ALL GOTHED UP LOOK PRETTY SEXY, BUT YVONNE FOR SOME REASON JUST LOOKED OLDER, COULD'VE BEEN THE GREY STREAK RUNNING THROUGH HER WIG TOO. ACTUALLY SHE WAS MUCH MORE BEAUTIFUL IN HER REGULAR NON-LILY MAKE-UP, DO A GOOGLE IMAGE SEARCH AND YOU'LL SEE WHAT I MEAN..... PLUS HER LOOSE FITTING MUNSTERS WARDROBE MADE HER LOOK HEAVIER THAN SHE REALLY WAS.

Agreed, Yvonne could have benefited greatly from a tighter fitting dress to show off her lovely, curvy figure... but I don't think the producers wanted to sell "sexy" from Lily Munster. They actually tried that first with the original color Munsters pilot when Joan Marshall played her (as Phoebe) with a much more sexy sort of Vampira / Morticia slink, as seen here: http://www.the-reelgillman.com/munsters/phoebe/index.html ...it's interesting to think how different Munsters TV history would be if they had gone with Joan instead and filmed in color.

BUt you've gotta admit, her batty pendant launched a thousand Hot Topic jewelry counters!

Not to mention the launching of a million sad, batty faced goth girls. Can't win them all...
