A Scream Family



In 1938 was created a cartoon of this famous family. They’re Addams Family.
On September 18, 1964 was introduced to the Addams Family starring:
1. CAROLYN JONES as MORTICIA ADDAMS
2. JOHN ASTIN as GOMEZ ADDAMS
3. JACKIE COOGAN as UNCLE FESTER
4. TED CASSIDY as LURCH
5. BLOSSOM ROCK as GRANDMAMA
6. KEN WEATHERWAX as PUGSLEY ADDAMS
7. LISA LORING as WEDNESDAY ADDAMS
8. FELIX SILLA as UNCLE ITT

The strange, macabre but amusing story created y Charles Addams. Its debut was in 1964-1966.They competed with “The Munsters”.
They lived with a hand into a box that appears in some moments. They were dark, morbid, obsessed with pains. The first cast was simply unique and perfect. The script was enjoyable, nice, and hilarious. An excentric and creepy family that had success in Argentina as well. I loved to watch them taking my milk when I returned from my school. Those were fantastic days for me.
About Morticia I can say that I admired her pale face and long black hair that touched her back.
Her husband had strange eyes. A seven-foot-tall warmed-over like Frankenstein monster was Lurch, the buttler.
Fester was Morticia’s uncle. He lighted a bulb on his mouth. Wednesday’s pet home was a black widow spider. Her headless doll was Marie Antoinette.
Pugsley’s pet octopus was named Aristotle.
They lived in a Victorian Mansion at Cemetery Lane.
Morticia’s man-eating plant was named Cleopatra. And Kitty cat was the lion.
Dark humor, hilarious scripts, morbid gays that liked to many people around the world.
They really are a scream family that says their song.
We are remembering their stories after fifty years since their first chapter on a cartoon.
