Herman Munster’s “words of wisdom” from 1965 are uniting millions of social media users in 2020.
In a brief clip from the episode of The Munsters, Herman tries to console his son Eddie who was bullied at school.
He said: “The lesson I want you to learn is it doesn’t matter what you look like. If you’re tall or short; or fat or thin; or ugly or handsome – like your father – or you can be black, or yellow, or white. It doesn’t matter. What does matter is the size of your heart and the strength of your character.”
Butch Patrick, who played Eddie in the sitcom, said he’s aware of the clip going viral on social media and is thrilled its message is still resonating with people decades later.
“The words are strong and they’ve never been truer than today,” said the 66-year-old. “The show was about family values and it can still be watched among all ages and generations. The message is timeless.”
