  • 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!
