If you are a fan of classic comedy then you probably remember the Adams family comedy. This is a show that debuted in the late 60’s on ABC. This comedy show hit the screen with spooky and kooky characters. The show is a creation of a cartoonist named Charles Adams, at first it was a series with dark bizarre comic drawings that he created for a New York magazine. His cartoons were more of gothic and ghoulish characters. The Adams family actually portrays the opposite side of life, breaking the rules and doing things against norm. If you are the type that hates following set up rules and abiding by what society thinks is right, then you probably would love this show.
When Adams family became a series on TV, Adams created the names of characters and the script duties were taken up by Nat Perrin one of the most humorous writers and creators the world has ever known.
The cast of the Adams family included: Carolyn Jones (Morticia), a very sexy, black widow who totally portrays a gloom and solemn figure, Ted Cassidy (Lurch), is the seven-foot-tall funny butler who mostly groans instead of speaking to the kids who are rather odd themselves Jackie Coogan who is Uncle Fester, is a hairless crazy guy who enjoys firing canons for fun as well as sleeping on nails. Ken Weatherwax acts as Pugsley; Lisa Loring who is called Wednesday has a very distinct gloomy sensibility. Cousin ‘Itt’ is little and has gibberish speech and long hair.
This family never worried about what society thought since they were wealthy, they enjoyed their money in a rather peculiar way. The least bit of their concerns was what society thought about them. This comedy is available on DVD; grab it today and have a laugh.
