Who would have thought that a sit-com based on the cartoons and drawings of Charles Addams could be this entertaining? The odd, but strangely normal Addams family cuts roses off stems to keep the thorns and has a pet lion. They are completely unaware that they are different from anyone else. They have enough unusual relatives to keep things moving along.
John Astin was brilliant as Gomez. Carolyn Jones was simply beautiful as Morticia.
Former child star Jackie Coogan was the perfect Uncle Fester.
If you get a chance to watch this series, do so. It was funny, weird and witty all at the same time.
