Yesterday, NBC released new footage from its Munsters reboot Mockingbird Lane. It introduced Grandpa and Lily Munster in all their supernatural glory. Today, we have another clip that highlights Lily's other half—Herman.

When photos from the special first surfaced, some fans were upset. They were disappointed the characters weren't the spitting image of the originals.

The biggest complaint was targeted at Jerry O'Connell's Herman. His version is nowhere near as Frankenstein-esque as Fred Gwynne's. But don't worry, the producers still remember the Herman you know and love.

In the following clip, watch as they cleverly pay homage to his classic look.

Mockingbird Lane premieres Friday, Oct. 26, at 8 p.m. on NBC.

What do you think of the new Herman?
