CARLISLE, PA – The Carlisle Ford Nationals presented by Meguiar’s is in full swing, but just announced, former child star Butch Patrick will be on-site Sunday, June 6 to meet fans, sign autographs and pose for photos alongside the George Barris designed Dragula that was part of the CBS TV show “The Munsters.” His appearance time is planned to start at approximately 10 a.m. This appearance marks Patrick’s first-ever trip to the Carlisle Ford Nationals and the first time, believe it or not, in 60 years that he’s been together with this particular Dragula car.
As mentioned above, Patrick is best known from his work on the CBS TV show “The Munsters,” where from 1964-66 he played little Eddie Munster. He reprised the role for a 1966 feature film and also starred as Mark on the ABC Saturday morning series, “Lidsville” from 1971-1973. It’s his Munsters career that endeared him to millions though and it’s that role and its corresponding popularity that brings him to Carlisle tomorrow.
"I was just happy to be part of a TV show that has such a timeless following,” said Patrick. “People today really seem to enjoy nostalgic shows with real family values even if it’s a family of lovable monsters."
In addition to Patrick himself, he’ll be positioned alongside the #1 Dragula, a feature car from his iconic show. This car and others of similar backgrounds are part of the first-ever Comic-Car-Con display within Building T on the east side of the Carlisle PA Fairgrounds. This includes a ‘60s era Batmobile (with cos-play Batman), ‘70s era Starsky and Hutch Torino, 2000s era Mustang from Transformers and more. Some cars in the display are screen used, while others are replicas/tribute cars.
Patrick will have merchandise available for sale and is happy to sign autographs for fans. A fee will apply for both. Photo opportunities will also be available, including ones with the iconic Dragula as the backdrop.
