Rob Zombie shared a new photo of the Munsters in full colour on Instagram.
view from my monitor. 💀 Three very tired Munsters trying to conserve their energy between takes. ⚡️ It’s been a tough one for this trio. Three hours in makeup – 14 hours of shooting – one hour of clean up. Then a drive back to the hotel, grab a few zzz and straight back on set. 🦇 It’s definitely the end of a long day here. Outside the stage the ☀️ is definitely beginning to rise. Working from sunrise to sunrise. Cheers to these three for always bringing the thunder 💥 #themunsters #robzombie #sherimoonzombie #jeffdanielphillips #danielroebuck

The Muppets Mayhem
Tahj Mowry has joined the cast of Muppets Mayhem as Gary “Moog” Moogowski, “a lovably awkward die-hard superfan” of the Electric Mayhem who “loyally follows them from gig to gig. Moog is an avid audiophile who knows his way around a mixing board. Since he is a walking encyclopaedia of the musical act, he’s often able to offer advice or guidance to Nora when she’s having trouble wrangling, communicating with or even understanding them. As Moog continues to work closely with Nora (Singh), he begins to hope that maybe she’ll see him less as a goofy sidekick and more as a leading man.” [Spoiler TV]
