Kind of hard to not snap your fingers whenever you hear that nostalgic tune of gloriousness.
As you may or may not have heard, The Addams Family have been on the heels of a theatrical comeback per MGM last year when the project was first announced. Much to both dismay and welcoming of fans as the film was to project America’s favorite creepy and kooky fam in ye’ faithful animated form- as depicted by creator Charles Addams in the form of cartoon panels first appearing in The New Yorker magazine back in 1938.
Once the cartoon strips adapted into physical media in 1964 (the boob tube), Gomez, Morticia, Cousin Itt and the rest of the clan were launched into superstardom with their stories continuing for the next 50 years with live-action films, Saturday morning cartoons, and even a cereal to boot. Bonus points if you still have the Uncle Fester flashlight! And now here we are 2019, and the gothic family has no signs of slowing down with a return of the visional animation roots in of which the black seeds were planted.
