[show]Beverly Owen played the part of Marilyn for the first 13 episodes. She was in love with her fiancée in New York and agreed to do the show thinking it would be a flop from the outlandish premise. When it became a hit, she was constantly crying from having to be in LA while her boyfriend was in New York. The other cast members asked the producers to release her from her contract so she could get married and they did.

Ironically, Beverly Owen would get divorced from her boyfriend 10 years later and would never appear on screen again after those initial 13 episodes.
- Lily Munster's original first name was Phoebe in the pilot.
