Butch Patrick's Quotes

  • I straightened my own life out in my own time. Maybe I should have gone to rehab, but I didn't. A little man inside me said it was time to get my life in order.
  • [on making $600 a week at Universal Studios] They put makeup on me, and that was the character. I used the back lot as my private little entertainment center.
  • [on working on the Donna Douglas project] Believe it or not. I've had a hard time developing financing.
  • Most of my memories weren't really while filming, but running around the back lot, going to the laboratory, where they were making all of the monsters for the other movies, in the makeup department, and the special effects department. That's what I enjoyed.
  • [on Yvonne De Carlo, who was the last-minute replacement to play Lily Munster] I have to interject something here. I never really thought about this, but can you imagine the difference of The Munsters (1964) opening clip with Fred Gwynne as "Herman Munster" and then Joan Marshall as "Phoebe"? It doesn't have the same impact as Yvonne De Carlo as "Lily". I mean, they really got a good punch with Yvonne De Carlo. I was just sort of substituting for the other kid and I did a pretty good job, but I think that the real slip in the last-minute crew was getting Yvonne De Carlo, major screen star, to play television.
