I guess there's something about that 1313 combination. The Munsters, of course, lived at 1313 Mockingbird Lane. Were there any other 1313 addresses? It's not quite the same, but Donald Duck's license plate, in the comic books, was 313. This was back in the days when license plate numbers were shorter. Our license plate, when I was a boy, was 920.

Mr. Chester Riley (William Bendix) and family resided at 1313 Blue View Terrace, an address worthy of Dickens.
