Da-Da-Da-Dum, Snap Snap! They're creepy and they're kooky! That's right, the family that defined "ooky" is now part of the MeTV family. You and your family can watch The Addams Family weeknights at 6PM | 5C beginning Monday, May 3. Join Gomez, Morticia, Wednesday, Pugsley, Uncle Fester, Lurch, Cousin Itt, and Grandmama.
The Addams Family originally aired for two seasons, from 1964–66, but its gothic humor influenced generations of fans. Based on the macabre cartoons of illustrator Charles Addams, many of which ran in The New Yorker, The Addams Family was part of a wave of funny fantasy series in the Sixties. No wonder that its stars, John Astin and Carolyn Jones, later popped up as Batman villains.
Fun fact: The characters did not have names until the television series.
Over the years, the Addams clan never strayed far from the spotlight. In the Seventies, an animated cartoon and reunion movie, a 1977 Halloween special, proved the Addams were as popular as ever. Of course, two decades later, a fresh cast revived the franchise with a series of hit films. The irresistible theme music by Vic Mizzy remains one of the most well-known TV ditties.
On MeTV, you can revisit the original classic Monday through Friday, beginning in May. Need a hand? We have the "Thing" for you! Click the "Add to Favorites" button below to receive updates about Addams Family content, quizzes and news.
