I’m watching the first season of The Addams Family right now from Netflix. and a few things have already struck me:
The amazing casting â€“ Jackie Coogan’s Fester, Carolyn Jones’ still oddly sexually fascinating Morticia, and John Astin’s perfect, and I mean perfect Gomez.
Vic Mizzy’s theme is iconic of course, but the background music for the show itself… I’m gonna be humming those themes all weekend.
The set decoration â€“ how much fun must that have been?!
Man, I’m gonna enjoy this even more than I thought.
