'Mockingbird Lane': Eddie Izzard As Grandpa Reboots Herman Munster -- Quite Literally (EXCLUSIVE VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

"Mockingbird Lane" (premieres Fri., Oct. 26, at 8 p.m. ET on NBC) is the perfect Halloween treat for fans of campy, ghoulish family drama. Bryan Fuller's much-anticipated "Munsters" reboot is pretty action-packed.

Already this week, HuffPost TV has shown you two exclusive sneak peeks of "Mockingbird Lane" -- including Lily Munster (Portia de Rossi) and Grandpa (Eddie Izzard) arriving at their new home and the introduction to Herman Munster (Jerry O'Connell), Eddie (Mason Cook) and Marilyn (Charity Wakefield). Now here's the third ...

How do you wake a sleeping Herman Munster from the dead? Reboot him! With the help of some natural electricity, a lightening rod and a resourceful little assistant, Grandpa gets the old guy up and running again, as seen in the clip above. Seriously, are they teaching this in the boy scouts now?

"Mockingbird Lane" will air as a special Halloween movie on Fri., Oct. 26, at 8 p.m. ET on NBC, with the option for the pilot to become a series.

Here's NBC's description of the Halloween special:

Buying a house these days is a nightmare, so Herman and Lily are shocked that no one scooped up the rambling Victorian mansion at 1313 Mockingbird Lane that was the site of a series of grisly hobo murders. Settling into their new place, they’re quickly onto the mission at hand: to gently ease Eddie into the reality of his werewolf adolescence. But it’s not always so easy to accept that your child is a little “different” from the rest of the kids. Meanwhile, Herman, who works as a funeral director, is suffering from a heart condition. Since he’s made up mostly of spare parts, he knew his makeshift heart would eventually give out. No worries though, because Grandpa, who is pretty good at procuring body parts, is on the case. All Herman cares about is finding a new heart with the same capacity to love Lily as much as he has for so many decades.
