The Addams Family (1973)
User ReviewsAdd a Review
The animation is not amazing I will admit, with some backgrounds lacking finesse and fluidity and some of the character designs particularly with the eyes looked at times static and unfinished. I will say though, I did like the atmospheric colours.
But the music is great, with one of the coolest intros of any Hanna Barbera show and incidental music that never feels too gimmicky. The story lines, stemming from a great concept, are lively and fun if a tad on the predictable side, and the characters are still wonderful, my favourites being Fester and Gomez, though Morticia is very sexy.
Of the voice cast, which is all rock-solid from all involved, Jackie Coogan stands out as Fester, he puts such enthusiasm into the role without over-doing it too much. But what made me love The Addams Family the most was the writing. There are some truly hilarious jokes that are never too sophisticated or childish, instead it is all very witty.
All in all, very enjoyable. 9/10 Bethany Cox
