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 21chesterplace.com
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!
