The Addams Family (1964)

The Addams Family (1964)


The Addams Family was a show created from the mind of cartoonist Charles Addams. The Addams Family consists of Gomez and Morticia Addams and their two children, Pugsley and Wednesday. Also included are Uncle Fester, Grandmama, the hairy Cousin Itt, a disembodied hand named Thing and the butler Lurch. From 1964-66 this show appeared on ABC the same time as The Munsters were on CBS. The Addams lived in a creepy mansion along with a full-grown lion named Kitty cat and a hungry plant Cleopatra. It is normal to hear earth-shaking explosions and see the most unusual objects in the confines of the Addams home.
