Watching the Old Addams Family Show and Movies

Hey 3.5 readers.

BQB here.

After seeing the recent cartoon, I became nostalgic and was pleased to find that a lot of the 1960s original Addams Family TV show episodes are available on YouTube…legit too as in put up by MGM.

Whenever I have 20 mins free, I watch one and am impressed with the wit, the comedic timing, and the overall understanding of how comedy is basically committing to an absurd premise and sticking with it.

I also watched both 1990s movies – The Addams Family and Addams Family Values.  To my surprise, they hold up, though there are plenty of jokes that are funnier to people who were around in the 1990s.  Raul Julia was so full of life as Gomez that it makes me sad (and surprised) that he passed away not long after these movies were made.
