If you didn’t know, I am a bit of a horror buff, not super hardcore or anything but I like creepy stuff. The Addams Family was probably the gateway to that little obsession. This weirdo family who were oblivious to the fact that they weren’t normal. In fact they thought the rest of traditional civilization were the weirdos. But no matter how weird they thought you were they accepted you for who you are. There’s a lesson there for today, acceptance. No matter how strange or different someone might be we should accept them. If they aren’t harming anyone then let them live the life they are trying to live. If the folks that had dealings with the Addams’ just accepted who they were there would have been a lot less complications, but then it would’ve been a pretty dull television show. Just thinking, the locations of some of Gomez’s “assets” kind of makes me wonder if they were entirely legit? And I really would like to have a relationship like Gomez and Morticia, you can just tell they adored each other.
The remakes with Raul Julia and Anjelica Huston were a great interpretation.
I also found out that there’s a new movie being made, an animated flick with the characters look based on the Charles Addams’ original cartoons. That’s going to be badass.
