Can you remember all these running gags from The Addams Family?

Do you know all the kooky quirks of this classic sitcom?

Many sitcoms from the 1960s had running gags that carried over from episode to episode and The Addams Family was no exception. But because the marvelously macabre household was so different from the idea of the typical American family, the gags were hilariously bizarre.

Can you complete all these gags, jokes and recurring bits seen in The Addams Family?

9/12 wasn’t my favorite show and haven’t seen in a long time. Preferred the Munsters so I didn’t think I would do that well. But I recalled most of the gags as I read each clue! 🥴

"Well, that was fun. I think I'll go have a chat with Itt."
