Classic Series Available for Instant Viewing on Netflix

Rumor has it that the Addams Family Original TV Series (1964-1966) is currently available to stream (Netflix's "Watch Instantly" feature).

While I don't have Netflix, and don't seem to be able to confirm or deny the rumors personally. I do urge those of you with a Netflix account, who are interested in watching the series for free, to check it out. This is a great chance for those of you who haven't seen the series to finally take a look!

"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.

Addams Family Resort and Casino... That Never Was

Here's a real tease for fans. has this listed in an article called "Dream Projects Which Were Never Built."

Their description is as follows:
"Addams Family Resort and Casino
Aimed directly at the baby-boomer demographic, The Addams Family Resort and Casino was another (really bad, ok, laughable) idea."
Hmm, not very flattering. See more Vegas projects that never were at

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."
