WEST CHESTER, Pa. – Forty-five years after a Pennsylvania woman sent a fan letter to her favorite TV star, they’ve made a Munster match.

Donna McCall was a 10-year-old with a crush on Butch Patrick, who played boy werewolf Eddie Munster in the mid-’60s sitcom “The Munsters.”

McCall was a Philadelphia Eagles cheerleader in the late 1970s, worked for 20 years as a hospital pharmacist, married and divorced. When “The Munsters” ended in 1966 after two years on the air, Patrick left Mockingbird Lane and appeared on shows including “My Three Sons” and “Lidsville,” though Eddie Munster remains his best known role.

An online article triggered McCall’s memory of her preteen idol. She found an e-mail address for Patrick, and a correspondence began.

McCall, now 55 and living 30 miles outside Philadelphia in West Chester, sent along a picture from her cheerleading days, said Patrick, 57, who never married but has a 23-year-old son in Missouri. She also sent photos of herself doing activities from scuba diving and trapeze lessons to race car driving, he said.

“That intrigued me a lot,” Patrick said. “She’s single, she’s beautiful, she’s in the nicest part of the country and she likes to do adventurous things. I figured I had to meet this woman.”

The pair met May 8 at a horror convention outside Pittsburgh called DraculaCon. You could say it was love at first bite.

Within weeks, Patrick, who has homes in Los Angeles and Florida, moved to Pennsylvania to be with McCall. He’s working this Halloween season with a company called 13 Haunts and will appear at its 13 haunted houses in the Philadelphia area.
