    I started watching "The Addams Family" as a kid in the 80's when it was in syndication, and remember my stepfather commenting to me the first time I watched it that he had also watched the show when he was younger. After watching it on a daily basis afte

    r school for awhile, I became fascinated with the show. But more than anything, I became fascinated with their house. As a kid I really thought that the house was real. I knew that it was a show and it was being filmed for TV, but I thought that they were filming it in a real house….that house! That beautiful 3 story, Second Empire, Spooky old home. As I got older and watched the show I eventually realized that the house was a painting/picture and the show was filmed on a Set, needless to say I was disappointed. But still loved the show and the house no question. If anything it fueled my interest as a young adult in the show, drawing pictures of the house and floor plans,fantasizing about owning a home like that. And then…..

    When the internet came out, it opened up a whole new world for me. Not only did I find out that there WAS a real house at one time (but without the 3rd floor and tower)! But I could not believe how many other people loved and obsessed over this show and the cult following of fans it has. Not to mention the continuous fan clashes over "The Addams Family VS The Munsters", that keeps the two shows legacy alive Halloween after Halloween. I am more obsessed with the show and the house than ever, thanks to the internet. Even made my own site on The original Addams Family House that they used in the 1st episode and modeled the look of the house after, it was a real home. It's at

    A shame that the show was only on for 2 seasons worth - 64 episodes.Luckily the shows content is still relevant, still enjoyable to watch today. Or at least I do!moreless

    Gomez: The ideal dad

    By peterh32, Nov 10, 2010

    Gomez Addams is my role model. Well, actually I'm nothing like Gomez, but I'd like to try. Maybe I'll go blow up a model train this afternoon. And start raising piranhas, and smoking cigars. But it's not all the accessories that I envy so much as Gomez' boundless and intense enthusiasm for everything. Nothing could upset him; he was just thrilled about everything -- blossom-less roses, explosions in the basement, daughter Wednesday taking up home surgery -- it was all great to the gleaming-eyed Gomez.

    '60s television is such a strange place. On the one hand you've got Bewitched, on the other, something like this. The Addams Family was like an island of barbarism in a sea of sitcom domesticity, and I will always appreciate it for that.moreless

    They're creepy and they're kooky, mysterious and spooky, they're all together ooky, The Addams Family. Their house is a museum when people come to see 'em, they really are a screamum, the Addams Family.

    Monsters made fun. Sensually delightful, Gomez and Morticia are madly in love with each other and show more faithfulness towards each other than many more "normal" couples. Culturally sophisticated, the family is learned in the arts of Medicine, Horticulture, Music, Dance, and Art. They practice the fine sport of fencing; support the environment by protecting endangered species such as Lions and Dragons, and who could forget Morticia's carnivorous plants? Uncle Fester conserves electricity by being the family's generator. Mama does the cooking and is also the family physician. Pugsley is the family's demolition expert who may one day discover oil during one of his explosions. Wednesday is the precocious younger child who sees eveything. Then there is darling Lurch, the butler, and Thing the . . . well . . .thing, who pops up in the most unusual places - usually with the mail, or a guest's hat. Of course, there is Cousin It, the walking hair-mound, and Ophelia the golden throated singer. With such a family who could ever be bored? Frightened maybe, terrorized . . . definitely, but never, ever bored! Well worth the effort of finding and watching again!moreless

    They may be creepy and kooky - but this show is never ooky.

    By Jaykeson, Oct 01, 2010

    Very few Black & White shows have ever caught my attention. Growing up in 'the age of color', I can't really stand to watch shows or movies that aren't colorized. People can say "well I'm glad you didn't grow up in my day then" - but that is exactly my point. It's not that I am against watching shows in B&W - I just prefer when they are in color.

    However - "The Addams Family" is an exception to that rule. It wouldn't look the same without being in B&W - I believe this is what gives the show it's atmosphere.

    Such a dark comedy for it's day. Doom and gloom are what this show is about - but it does it in such a manner that it turns the (usually) somber situations into something hilarious.

    It is really no wonder that this show has been a firm favourite for almost 5 decades and spawned a number of movies and spin-offs (including an an animated series of the same name).

    Although (for most of us) we can't relate to them - there is still something about them that touches us, while letting us view life from a different perspective.

    This show has proven to be ageless - comedy like this is sure to appeal to many people for a long time to come.moreless

    I absolutely love this show!

    By Geritte, Jan 01, 2008

    Addams family has something special about them - not that they are strange, creepy or so... but they are such a real loving family. Gomez and Morticia is a perfect, loving married couple. And they all are wonderful, kind people who live full life, opposite to some other "normal" people. This show is very well written. Its for everyone - children and adults. But quite a lot of things are for older viewers, not very small children - political themes, for instance... Characters are great. Gomez- impulsive and energetic, always ready to do something new. Morticia - the main word to describe her, would be - elegant. She can be as energetic as Gomez, but in a bit different way - she is more stable and realistic - cool and beautiful. Uncle Fester gives some crazier and creepier component to this family. Lurch is an awesome, original character itself. He has his own "style". This show is unique, funny AND CLEVER - not just another dull comedy.

    When you watch them you just want to be a part of their family.moreless
