The Munster family's multi-level Victorian home had the fictional address of 1313 Mockingbird Lane in Mockingbird Heights (The town's location is not specified in the series, but in later incarnations is described as a small town outside of Los Angeles, California. Leo Durocher, who was then coaching with the Los Angeles Dodgers, guest-starred as himself in one episode, further hinting the show was set in or near Los Angeles). The exterior shots were filmed on the Universal Studios backlot. The house was originally built in 1946 for the movie So Goes My Love, and then put into storage for several years. Sometime in the 1950s, it was assembled with other homes on the backlot. Until production of The Munsters in 1964, the house could be seen as a backdrop on many shows, including Leave It to Beaver. It was also the home of the family in Shirley (ABC, 1979–80) and has appeared in other TV shows such as Coach and most notably (after a remodel) Desperate Housewives. The interiors for the Munsters' mansion were filmed entirely on an enclosed sound stage.
