Twin Tiers Comic-Con is excited to welcome actor Butch Patrick to our 2022 show!
Beginning his professional acting career at the age of eight, Patrick is perhaps best known for his role as child werewolf Eddie Munster on the CBS comedy television series “The Munsters,” and in the feature film “Munster, Go Home!” In 2022, he will be appearing in Rob Zombie’s “The Munsters” as the voice of Tin Can Man.
Patrick began his acting career in 1961, making his feature film debut in the comedy-fantasy “The Two Little Bears.” Over the next two years, Patrick went on to appear in guest-starring roles on numerous television series, including “Ben Casey,” “Alcoa Premiere,” “Bonanza,” “My Favorite Martian,” and “Rawhide,” as well as recurring roles on “The Real McCoys” and “General Hospital.”
In 1964, Patrick landed the role of child werewolf Eddie Munster, starring alongside Fred Gwynne as Herman Munster, Yvonne De Carlo as Lily Munster and Al Lewis as Grandpa, on the CBS television series, “The Munsters,” a fantasy situation comedy loosely based on Universal's movie monsters. The role of Eddie was originally portrayed by child actor Happy Derman in the pilot episode before Patrick was ultimately selected out of 500 boys for the role.
After “The Munsters” ended, Patrick continued to appear in guest-starring roles on various popular television series of the 1960s, including “I Dream of Jeannie,” “Gunsmoke,” “The Monkees,” “Daniel Boone,” and “Adam-12,” as well as a recurring role as Gordon Dearing on the CBS family comedy series “My Three Sons.” In 1971, Patrick landed the starring role on the ABC Saturday morning children's program “Lidsville.” Patrick returned to occasional film and television work, including voicing himself on episodes of the Fox animated television series “The Simpsons,” and playing himself in the 2003 comedy film “Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star.”
