Watch The Addams Family
- 3 Seasons
The Addams Family is a television show about a gruesome family. Gomez and Morticia are the head of the household. They have two children, Wednesday and Pugsley. Grandma, Cousin Itt and Uncle Fester reside in the home as well. They have a butler named Lurch and Thing is a hand that comes out of a box every now and then to help with some small chores. The show is a scary comedy that ran from 1964 to 1966. The family lives in a huge house across the street from a cemetery. The town is Anywhere, USA. There are a lot of scary surprises for guests that visit the home. The family does the opposite of what other families may do. For instance, Wednesday's dolls have no heads on them. They sleep on beds of nails and there is some indication that Lurch is a zombie. The children are encouraged to be sad rather than happy. Although that is not what most parents would do, it seems to work for this family. Gomez and Morticia are madly in love with each other. This is evidenced when Gomez grabs Morticia's arm, kisses it from her hand to her neck and speaks in French. Morticia shows little to no emotion in these moments, but it is evident that she loves him just as much. Lurch appears when one of the family members rings the bell. He helps take care of anything they ask of him without question. He looks a bit scary, but there is something endearing about him. It may be his longstanding loyalty to the family that makes him such a huge hit. Uncle Fester is a bald, portly fellow. He is an ornery guy who sometimes has too much time on his hands. A fan favorite is seeing Fester place a light bulb in his mouth and watching it light up. Fester is an experimenter. He will try anything once and often blows things up in the house. He is one of the most fun characters on the show. The Addams Family is a show the entire family can watch. Although the theme is scary, the characters are anything but scary. It actually promotes a little diversity as well. It teaches people that appearances are not everything.
