You had to have a really good imagination to come up with The Addams Family and creator/cartoonist Charles Addams definitely did. I remember this was one of the coolest shows ever. And I was surprised to learn that it only lasted 3 years for a total of 64 shows. That seems small, especially when you compare it to other long running shows of the 60's. But I guess because like it's sister show, The Munsters, it was a way different type of show. It would become a classic thanks to cable reruns and DVDS and even enjoy a comeback with the big movie remake with Raul Julia and Anjelica Huston in the roles of Gomez and Morticia. Addams Family is remembered today thanks to this original series from the 60's which had a memorable kooky theme song that most people know by hard. Also helping was the fact that it was shot in B&W which gave it a classic horror movie type feel without the horror. It's not broadcast much these days, sometimes on TVLand, but thank heaven for You Tube and DVDS. You can still enjoy these fabulous kooky episodes today.
I'm trying to recall my favorite episodes but it's been so long since I have seen them. I just remember certain scenes like Gomez fencing like a man possessed, or target practicing with knives on Lurch, or was it vice versa. I remember the gibberish talk of Cousin It who would get depressed over some inane thing and Morticia would have to soothe his feelings. So I have a few good memories but they need to be refreshed. Maybe watch a few classic episodes online somewhere. Well I hope someone took some enjoyment from this blog. I know I enjoyed writing it. Did anyone else like The Addams Family or did you prefer The Munsters? Love to hear your comments. And I hope to write about all the other great sitcoms at least one a week. Maybe more, time permitting but would love to hear what everyone has to say on them too. And thanks team especially Tracy for inviting me here. I know I'm gonna love it being here.
