pretty sure kid is alive because the kid`s right hand has about 8 fingers, meaning it moved suring exposure. but Mr Munster is definately dead.

They`re probably dead. It was very common those days to portray dead people.

Even the kid is weird - male pattern baldness at age 3 or 4!

Actually, in those days it was common when a family member died they would arrange them like this for a final photo.

Exposures could last minutes or hours, in some cases. That`s why eyeballs look white - few people could keep still long enough for the camera to finish.

After this photograph was taken, they immediately slaughtered and ate the child.

And they were probably very sweet and caring. Just like the tv characters.
