The Addams Family is not your typical family: it takes delight in most of the things of which normal people would be terrified. Gomez Adams is an extremely wealthy man and is able to indulge his wife Morticia's every desire, whether it's cultivation of poisonous plants or a candlelit dinner in a graveyard. People visiting the Addams Family just don't seem to appreciate the 7-foot-tall butler named Lurch or the helping hand (which is just a disembodied hand named Thing).Written by

Has anyone ever told you, you have the softest brown eyes?
No. Besides, my eyes are blue.
No wonder nobody's ever told you!

This show had it ALL--the original thinking man's unconventional humor, sex appeal, the breaking and questioning of the conventions of conformity as well as looking at the world in a unique, offbeat frame of mind!! This show perfected the genre of "looking at the world from the opposite side of the lense."
Innovative, without a doubt--the one-liners, sight gags, catch phrases!
Carolyn Jones and John Astin were the consummate performers in every way--the sex appeal, the humor, the acting ability, their natural chemistry.
You just couldn't help but feel sorry for Lurch though. No matter what happens, he opts for the misery.
Night Court, Get Smart and The (1964) Addams Family--The perfect trio!
