Gorillas and Munsters

Before playing Lily Munster, Yvonne De Carlo was in a burlesque show with this gorilla:

He was played by Emil Van Horn, who's in two of the movies I posted about here.
You can read all about Emil and the wild show here.

Eddie Munster was going to get a pet gorilla in season three of The Munsters.
Butch Patrick as Eddie and Bob Burns as the gorilla even made a public appearance.

Speaking of Butch, I saw him in Scary Movie (1991) recently.
You can watch the scene with him and Eddie's Woof Woof doll below.
