The Addams Family

Just a regular American family, the Addams Family entertained us for only two years – from September 1964 to April 1966. I was surprised. I thought it was on ABC longer than that. It was based on the characters in Charles Addams’ New Yorker cartoons.

One of the more interesting aspects of the show was Gomez Addams’ intense love for his wife Morticia. Other sitcoms of the era shunned such blatant attraction. Remember, Rob and Laura Petrie were still sleeping in twin beds. The rest of the family was rounded out with the children, Wednesday (a girl) and Pugsley (a boy), Uncle Fester and Grandmama and their servants, Lurch, the towering butler, and Thing, a hand that usually appeared out of a small wooden box.
