The Addams Family

The Addams Family
The Addams Family is the creation of American cartoonist Charles Addams, whose cartoons appeared in The New Yorker magazine. A satirical inversion of the ideal of the perfect American nuclear family, they are an eccentric wealthy family who delight in everything grotesque and macabre, and are never really aware that people find them bizarre or frightening. In fact, they themselves are often terrified by "normal" people. The Addams Family consisted of Gomez (John Astin) and Morticia Addams (Carolyn James) and their two children, Pugsley (Ken Weatherwax) and Wednesday (Lisa Loring). Also included are Uncle Fester (Jackie Coogan), Grandmama (Blossom Rock), the hairy Cousin Itt (Felix Silla), and the butler, Lurch (Ted Cassidy) and Thing! The series lasted two seasons and was later transformed into the 1991 feature film starring Raul Julia and Angelica Huston.
