A very spooky family: The Addams family
Do you recognize them? The Addamses, were first created as cartoon characters by Charles Addams (1912-1988), an American cartoonist, more than 70 years ago. They gained popularity when the eccentric and macabre family became the characters of a TV series on American TV (1966-69) Later there have been other adaptations, including films, video games and even a musical.

The Addams Family animated series in 1973
The Addams Family film in 1991
The Addams Family TV series never topped their fellow competitors, The Munsters (1964-1966), which appeared on television almost simultaneously. However, I’ve always thought The Munsters were never as good and imaginative because the Addams family were “creepy and they were kooky, mysterious and spooky …”.
