Butch Patrick, who became a worldwide TV star at the age of 7 and went on to play werewolf Eddie Munster on "The Munsters" series, will be a special celebrity guest at the Third Annual Spa-Con multi-genre comics and pop culture convention in Hot Springs September 21 - 23.

Patrick began his professional acting career at the age of 7 and is best known for his role as Eddie Munster, the child werewolf on the CBS comedy television series "The Munsters" from 1864 to 1966. He also starred in the 1966 feature film, "Munster, Go Home" and as Mark, on the ABC Saturday morning series, "Lidsville," from 1971 to 1973.

Born in 1953, he was spotted by Hollywood a talent agent at the age of 7, which led to a series of appearances in television commercials and guest appearances on TV shows.

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 Munsters," a fantasy situation comedy loosely based on Universal Studios movie monsters.

When asked how he landed the role of Eddie, Patrick recalled "I had a lot of experience. But maybe it was because my fangs were my own teeth. My teeth were so bad, that even when I closed my mouth they stuck out. I was about a head smaller than the other kids, and they liked that because it played off Herman's height."

He appeared in 70 episodes during "The Munsters'" two-season run from 1964 to 1966.

Patrick continues the Munster's legacy by touring with the Munster Koach and Dragula Tribute Cars, and the original 1964 Barris/Von Dutch Chain Link Schwinn Stingray Bike, and other Munster props to include Munster Go-Cart, Baseball Bat, Wolf Wolf, Miniature Spot, and Street Signs.
