The Addams Family vs. The Munsters: a Review

I came across this review of the Addams Family Season 1 DVD set. It contains yet another insightful comparison of the Addams Family and the Munsters. Since this much contested match-up is always of interest, I decided to post it.

Addams Family Show Among Top Runners for Wanted Remakes

From the Press Association:
The Muppet Show has topped a poll of programmes viewers want to see return to TV screens.

The Addams Family, The Wombles, Rainbow and Red Dwarf also featured in the small-screen top 10.

Adults aged between 30 and 40 were asked to list the programmes they would like to see revived.

The Muppet Show, which originally ran from 1976 to 1981 and made famous Jim Henson-created characters such as Miss Piggy, Kermit and Gonzo, grabbed the biggest share of the vote.

The A-Team, the action adventure series of the 1980s famous for catchphrases such as Hannibal Smith's "I love it when a plan comes together", came second.

Crackerjack, the famous children's BBC TV series, was third, followed by the long-running 1980s and 1990s sci-fi sitcom Red Dwarf.

Dungeons and Dragons, the US animated series of the 1980s, was fifth, followed by Rainbow, featuring the likes of Zippy, Bungle and George, and The Wombles.

The top ten was completed by Worzel Gummidge, which starred Jon Pertwee as the walking, talking scarecrow from 1979 to 1981, Bewitched, and The Addams Family.

Kevin Murphy, joint managing director of Zed Media, which commissioned the survey, said: "People still have strong emotional attachments to the TV programmes they watched as a child.

"The results show the growing trend for all things retro applies to TV as much as fashion."

The following question is being asked about the Addams Family Values movie, on

Did Amanda die in the addams family values?
Remember when Wednesday burned down the village of the play and tied up Amanda to the wooden stick surrounded by wood covered in gasoline? well did amanda die?

Write a response to the question on

Cool Stuff by a Fan!

Came across this great little doll set on

Of it, the artist wrote:
"Finally, for the Matroishka Doll set, I did the Addams Family with a character on each half of the nesting doll. It was quite the challenge and they were done in acrylic paint with varnish. A coffin box painted in black and gold was lined in silk tartan (black & blues) and when opened, it played The Addams Family theme song."

Visit While They Last

Two recent links of interest that probably won't be available indefinitely:

"The Addams Family Super Mega Post!," found on Dartman's World of Wonder Blog-
A great introductory post for aspiring Addam’s Family trivia-ists, this link is a collection of info, music downloads (Classic show soundtrack, “The Lurch” sung by Ted Cassidy, and the 1977 “Halloween with the New Addams Family” OST), and videos of the Addams Family’s appearances in The New Scooby Doo Movies!

Also, “Happy Halloween from Chas Addams” originally posted on the Hairy Green Eyeball Blog-
This post has a number of original Charles Addams comics from Addams’s first comic compilation. It’s a great introduction for people who are fans of the shows or movies but haven’t had a chance to see what started out the franchise.

Enjoy these links while they last, as it's possible that their full content may not be available indefinitely.

Casting Call

Open auditions for “The Addams Family” The Musical are being held in New York on October 29th! For all you Addams Family fans out there who happen to be professional dancers, here are the details:

The Addams Family- The Musical- Equity Chorus Call/Dancers
Producer: Stuart Oken Workshop Contract $560/week minimum (if a 5-day week) or $672/week minimum (if a 6-day week).

Workshop dates: January 14 – 27, 2009.

Seeking: Ensemble Dancers (m/f): 20s – 40s, all ethnicities. Strong classically and technically trained dancers who have a strong contemporary background. Seeking all types, with a quirky sense of movement and style. Seeking dancers who sing very well. Knowledge of tango and flamenco dancing a plus.

Some good things about being in a Workshop Contract production:
In addition to the salary the Actors earn during the Workshop sessions, they also earn a share in the future success of the show. For their contributions to the development of the show, the Actors share in contingent compensation that takes two forms. First, the Actors share in the weekly box office gross when the show is produced under contract; that is, the Actors, as a group, share a percentage (usually 1%) of the gross box office receipts. However, the percentage of gross receipts may increase when there is more than one session of the Workshop. Equity determines each Actor’s share based on the number of days/weeks that the Actor participated in the Workshop.

Second, the Actors share in any subsidiary rights income which is generated by the play. For example, subsidiary rights income can come from royalties from foreign productions, stock and amateur rights, or from the sale of motion picture rights. The Actors’ share of subsidiary rights is usually 1.5% of net receipts.

Those Actors who complete the Workshop must also be offered employment to perform the same role or function in the first subsequent production of the play under a standard Equity contract, or they must be offered no less than four weeks’ minimum salary under the appropriate Equity contract.

Equity Chorus Call/Dancers
Wednesday, October 29, 2008
10 AM – Equity women dancers who sing well
2 PM – Equity men dancers who sing well
Ripley-Grier Studios
520 Eighth Avenue, 16th Floor

Please be warmed up and ready to dance when the call begins. Jazz shoes or sneakers and comfortable clothing. Some may be asked to stay and sing after all have danced. Please prepare 16 bars of a contemporary musical theater song or pop song. Bring sheet music; an accompanist will be provided.

Please bring a picture and resume, stapled together.

Addams Family Fanfiction Challenge!

insanepink of has issued an Addams Family fanfiction challenge! If you're not familiar with the concept, a fanfiction challenge is a call to fiction writers to take up the pen and create a fanfiction story using a specific prompt.

The prompts, set by insanepink, are as follows:

-Morticia and Gomez getting a divorce
-Wednesday and Joel
(Joel= Wednesday's love interest in Addams Family Values)
-Addams Family Parallel Universe
-Addams and Munsters Cross over
-The having been separated for ages and they meeting up again.
-Something to do with Puglsey (no one ever writes about him)
-Something to do with Fester
-Something to do with Ophelia
-Something to do with Grandmama
-How Morticia and Gomez met.

Hopefully, these prompts will inspire a few stories! If you decide to participate in the challenge, post your story in the livejournal community Addamses and/or The Addams Source. If you don't have a livejournal account but would still like to participate, just post a link to your story and I would be happy to pass it along. Remember, any story you write will be appreciated--there just isn't enough Addams Family fiction in the world. We need more!

Link to the original challenge issued by insanepink

Addams Family Poll Closed

Our last poll, "In your mind, Uncle Fester is...", has closed and the results are in.
Most polled (55%, with 66 votes) think of Uncle Fester as "Gomez's brother--Fester Addams". The second most popular opinion (21%, with 26 votes) is that Fester is "An Addams at heart--and that's what really matters!" After that, "Morticia's Uncle--Fester Frump!" (15%, at 19 votes), followed far behind with "Probably an Addams, but not Gomez's brother" (4%, 5 votes); "Not actually human" (1%, 2 votes); and "Not actually a relative at all" (0%, 1 vote).

It's interesting to see that the movie version of Fester's relationship to the family seems be be most prevalent. Thanks to all those who participated. Be sure to keep your eyes open for our next poll, which will be added to the top, right hand corner of this blog soon.

Buffy/Addams Family/Munsters fanfiction... Oh my!

Well, this may not be exactly what most Addams Family fans are looking for, but the Addams family and the Munsters were recently mentioned in a piece of Buffy the Vampire Slayer fanfiction called "The Letter" by shylittlemuse of livejournal.

A warning to Addams Family fans, though, the story mentions Addams Family character deaths, and the main focus of the story is on characters of Buffy the Vampire.

Addams Family Themed Wedding

Jan Langenfeld and John Hadley had a wedding any Addams Family fan would be proud of:
A spooky 'I do'

They were creepy and kooky, mysterious and spooky. And very much in love.

When Jan Langenfeld and John Hadley got married last October, they wanted a fun wedding they would remember forever. And so they decided to capitalize on Langenfeld’s favorite holiday — Halloween — with an Addams Family theme.

“I came as Morticia and John as Gomez,” said Langenfeld, a nurse at SwedishAmerican Hospital. “The best man (came) as Uncle Fester, and my sister as Wednesday. My brother walked me down the aisle; he was Pugsly. Thing, the hand, was our ring bearer. John found him on eBay, and he came down the aisle with our wedding rings.”

While not everyone dressed in Addams Family gear — the wedding’s 55 guests were warned in advance it was a costume party — everybody had a costume of some sort. Even the servers and bartenders were dressed up, and one friend came as a tiki bar (his date was the waitress).

The reception was decorated as a graveyard with rats, bats and goblins, and Halloween music was played throughout the night. Instead of a traditional wedding cake, the couple had cupcakes with spiders on them.

Addams Family vs. Munsters? I think not

Tony Figueroa of has written an interesting opinion piece about the comparability of the original Addams Family and Munsters shows and their many contrasts:

The Beauty of The Munsters & The Addams Family

I do not want to repeat my Blake vs. Potter debate, but comparing The Addams Family to The Munsters is like comparing Laverne & Shirley to Cagney & Lacey. Other than the fact that these were macabre sitcoms mocking the nuclear families that were on the air at the time, these two shows and families were very different. For example if Eddie Munster (Butch Patrick) wanted to join the Boy Scouts his parents Herman & Lily (Fred Gwynne and Yvonne De Carlo) would be thrilled where as if Pugsley Addams (Ken Weatherwax) wanted to join the Boy Scouts his parents Gomez & Morticia (John Astin & Carolyn Jones) would be mortified and hope that this was just a phase.

M&MS vs. Addams Family Lawsuit

Hot on the heels of a lawsuit charging they infringed on the image of Times Square icon "The Naked Cowboy," the makers of M&Ms have been slapped with a $10 million federal suit for using characters from the old "Addams Family" TV series in their dark-chocolate candy ads.

A freelance entertainment broker is suing Mars Inc., claiming she originally pitched the concept of having characters from the 1960s-era show interact with animated M&Ms in an ad to cross-promote the release of an "Addams Family" DVD.

"The Emerging Lurch Movement."

Monsters everywhere question their monsterdom. Addams Family's Lurch is leading the movement.

"The whole point of this is that each of us must figure out for his or her or its self what it means to be a monster" said Lurch. "We don't try to give all of the answers. Each one must find his or her or its own path, and come to his or her or its own conclusions. Is that messy thinking? Absolutely, but we cherish the messiness. Doing monstrology is messy business. I don't think we can simply systematize a whole philosophy like some try to do.

Lesbian Version of the Addams Family Set to be filmed?

Here is some news that may make a lot of fans look twice. Well, this little tidbit has been confirmed as false. Though, concept certainly would have been interesting. cube_166 of livejournal originally reported the following:

A Lesbian version of the Addams Family is set to be filmed next year. The Addams Family has always been a favorite of lesbians everywhere but many lesbians have wished that the program might be a little more lesbian friendly. In response the BBC Commissioner, Sir Cubics MacLesbotrope has decided to totally revamp the traditional format. The cast list is as follows:

  • Gomez, the head of the family, will be played by Portia De Rossi.

  • Morticia, her wife, will be played by Lucy Liu.

  • Wednesday, the scheming and sombre daughter of the family, will be played by Michelle Rodriguez.

  • Pugsley, the slow witted but enthusiastic daughter of the family will be played by Paris Hilton.

  • Aunt Fester, the one that I’ve forgotten all useful information about, will be played by Christina Aguilera.

  • Thing, the disembodied hand scrabbling around performing tasks for the family, will be played by Ellen DeGeneres.

  • Lurch, the ghoulish servant of the family, will be played by Angelina Jolie.

  • Cousin Itt, the family’s hairy cousin, will be played by Russell Brand.

Upon being asked about the accuracy of this info, cube_166 replied: "Sorry, as awesome as that would be it isn't going to happen. To my knowledge at least. When I said it contains some actual facts I may have been exaggerating a bit."

Cousin Itt's Car on Display

Itt's car

The 1960 Messerschmitt KR-200 was made by Messerschmitt AG, a German aircraft company that built warplanes during World War II. Barred from producing aircraft after the war, the company switched to cars. A little trivia: The film Brazil featured a Messerschmitt and Cousin Itt drove one in the Addams Family comics.
