Storyline

The Addams Family is not your typical family: they take delight in most of the things that "normal" people would be terrified of. Gomez Adams is an extremely wealthy man, and is able to indulge his wife Morticia's every desire: be it cultivation of poisonous plants, or a candlelit dinner in a graveyard. People visiting the Addams Family just don't seem to appreciate the 7 foot tall butler "Lurch" or the helping hand (which is just a disembodied hand" named "Thing".

Such an enjoyable show from my childhood
21 December 2011 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

Hanna Barbera have been responsible for some of my favourite cartoons, primarily The Flintstones, Tom and Jerry and Scooby Doo Where Are You? The Addams Family was another childhood favourite, and I still enjoy it to this day, if not as much as the mentioned titles.

The animation is not amazing I will admit, with some backgrounds lacking finesse and fluidity and some of the character designs particularly with the eyes looked at times static and unfinished. I will say though, I did like the atmospheric colours.

But the music is great, with one of the coolest intros of any Hanna Barbera show and incidental music that never feels too gimmicky. The story lines, stemming from a great concept, are lively and fun if a tad on the predictable side, and the characters are still wonderful, my favourites being Fester and Gomez, though Morticia is very sexy.

Of the voice cast, which is all rock-solid from all involved, Jackie Coogan stands out as Fester, he puts such enthusiasm into the role without over-doing it too much. But what made me love The Addams Family the most was the writing. There are some truly hilarious jokes that are never too sophisticated or childish, instead it is all very witty.

All in all, very enjoyable. 9/10 Bethany Cox
