Those movies are the greatest.

Gary: Now, one of you will be the drowning victim and the other one gets to be our lifesaver.
Amanda: I'll be the victim!
Wednesday: All your life.

I had the biggest crush on her (it's okay, she's older than me). She's probably the reason I love goth girls.

They are. I own several paperback editions of his cartoons. They're kind of beat up looking from age and being read so often, but I love them.

I guess I do have this and a couple paperbacks. I LOVED them as a kid, they were my grandparents and I ended up with them.

He was a friend of my Mums (they worked together) and when I went in to the Magazine I often visited him and played with his cool props. When I graduated HS he gave me this

The movies were pretty good, I agree, and I think Christina Ricci did very well. I was never really drawn to Wednesday though.

My first childhood crush was on Carolyn Jones as Morticia.

It's OK, she's older than me, but she is definitely the reason why I love goths! ;-)

So, he liked you so much he gave you a drawing of a older man disrobing? You think maybe he was telling you something now that you were legal?

Carolyn Jones is the original Goth Goddess. There ARE no substitutes. And she showed that a character could be a wife, a mother, and still sexy as hell!

Agreed, and one of rather few films where the sequel is better than the original(and actually, outside of Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey, probably the best comedy sequel I can think of)

Actually, check that statement, after Gremlins 2 AND Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey.

So do I, along with a whole slew of old New Yorker mags with Addam's drawings, and I keep them under lock and key. I got a lot of unwanted attention after some douche who showed up at a party at my house a few years back found them in a print cabinet while rummaging about. The creep kept calling me and insisting that I sell my collection to him because "I couldn't possible appreciate them". When he started showing up at my door at odd hours of the day and night, and after he somehow got a hold of my Mom's telephone number and stated scaring the shait out of her, I called the police. The cops put the fear of Morticia into him but I didn't take any chances. The whole lot of them are now in a safety deposit box at the bank, which is a darn shame - it's a lot of trouble when I want to look at them. I have no idea if they are worth anything except the paper they are printed on, but they are priceless to me.

That pin ball machine is supposed to be one of the most popular ever produced, but I've only saw one. It was in a gay(ish) bar in Council Bluffs. I'd kill, or give Rick Santorum a BJ to own one.

They're out there. Good news is that it's the best selling pin of all time. Bad news is that they tend to be a little pricier than most because no one wants to part with one in good condition, but not too bad (again, there are tons of them.) Check Craigslist.

The first two movies were great, Addams Family Reunion was just producers riding the gravy train, trying to squeeze out all they could. There's a reason it went straight to video.

Gomez and Morticia Addams probably had the most functional marriage on prime-time television, ever.

Yes, I'm serious.

My parents had Addams and Evil, and subscribed to the New Yorker. Addams' cartoons were a fixture growing up. My grandmother (mom's mother) was horrified at one of the cartoons in Addams, the one with the Witch Doctor giving orders to his "nurse" who was depicted in "National Geographic" style.

One of my favorites from Addams and Evil is the guy digging a LONG ditch in a cemetery, and talking to another man outside the fence. "My goodness, no, just a water main."

That copy was already threadbare 40 years ago, I wonder if it's still around.

It's amazing the wealth of comedy series that came out in the early-mid 1960s: Gilligan's Island, Bewitched, Hogan's Heroes, Munsters, I dream of Jeannie are some of the ones that come to mind. I can't think of a similar 5-8 year span.

The fact that Google has a patent on the equivalent of an "attract screen" shows how broken the patent system is.

"It may be none of my business, but there hasn't been a train over that line in eight years"

Such a brilliant man. I really enjoy the book of his cartoons.

glad to see that doodle today. I loved the tv series when I was a kid ( I saw the originals), I've seen the movies. I had no idea that there was a Charles Addams or that he was a cartoonist who drew the Addams Family. I read an article today about him. My stars, I would have loved to party with him. How did I ever manage to never see his cartoons before?

Morticia to Gomez: "Don't torture yourself. That's MY job."

And the shot of the grandmother in the kitchen with The Joy of Cooking right beside Gray's Anatomy is priceless :)

I keep my copies shelved together, just to see who notices.

Big fan of the show and (first 2) movies, as well as his actual drawings, which I discovered a bit later.

As a sick, twisted bastard, I can only hope to be a hundredth of the sick, twisted bastard he was
