Q Whatever happened to Butch Patrick, who played Eddie on The Munsters?
—John Reynolds, Chickasha, Okla.

Patrick was 11 when he made his mark in the 1960s sitcom about a family of ghoulishly goofy misfits (his character was a pre-pubescent Wolf Man). In the early '80s, he formed the band Eddie and the Monsters, "which was the first unsigned act ever to be on MTV," recalls Patrick, 52. He currently is restoring a bus once owned by The Grateful Dead, with plans to turn it into a traveling tourist attraction, and still is associated with The Munsters, which continues to find new fans via reruns. "I get such a kick that when I do personal appearances, I see grandparents, their kids and their kids."
