Addams Family ~ Cult Classic
Perhaps you watched the original series as a child? Maybe you discovered this cult classic via the modern movie adaptations? Whether you are already familiar with the Addmas Family or this will serve as your first encounter with America’s favourite monster family, you will not regret investing in The Addams Family – The Complete Series DVD boxset!
0001 Cemetery Lane
Step inside the condemned mansion located on 0001 Cemetery Lane and you will meet Gomez, Morticia, Uncle Fester, Lurch, Wednesday and Pugsley Addams. The Addamses are a close-knit family whose supernatural tendencies and eccentric pastimes often clash with their straight-laced ‘normal’ neighbours. This nine disc DVD box-set features all 64 episodes of this cult comedy classic which ran from 1964 to 1966 in vibrant digitally re-mastered splendour.
Classic Family TV from 1960’s
The Addams Family – The Complete Series DVD box-set features the show’s original cast that die-hard fans know and love. John Astin plays the passionate patriarch Gomez Addams with Carolyn Jones as his glamorously gothic wife, Morticia. We meet Jackie Coogan as the electrifyingly eccentric Uncle Fester, while Ted Cassidy adds a lofty level of spookiness as the monolithic manservant Lurch.
Wednesday, Pugsley & Grandma
Lisa Loring plays the delightful yet deadly daughter Wednesday Addams with Ken Weatherwax as her brother and partner in crime Pugsley. Blossom Rock adds a magical touch as Grandmama Addams, a conjurer with a penchant for painting and playing the bagpipes.
Last but by no means least is Gomez’s constant companion Thing, a seemingly disembodied hand. Thing was often played either by Ted Cassidy or by assistant director Jack Voglin. As the live in hired hand, Thing can always be relied upon to fetch the mail, pour drinks, partake in a game of chess and play the castanets!
More Addams Family members
This digitally re-mastered The Addams Family – The Complete Series DVD box-set will also introduce you to some of the Addams’ eccentric extended family members. These include Gomez’s hairy and high-pitched Cousin Itt played by actor and stuntman Felix Anthony Silla. In addition we meet Morticia’s sister Ophelia who was always referred to as ‘The White Sheep of the Family and is also portrayed by Carolyn Jones.
Morticia and Ophelia’s eccentric mother Grandma Hester ‘Franny’ Frump is characterized by that wonderful actress Margaret Hamilton, or as you may know her, the Wicked Witch of the West from the Wizard of Oz movie!
