History and Adaptation of Addams Family 2
The Addams Family is one of the most iconic families in American pop culture. They are unique in their approach, appearance, and interests.
In 1938 Charles Addams introduced this family in his cartoon series published in The New Yorker. Addams's own home Westfield, New Jersey was his great inspiration for this path-breaking creation. Westfield was an ancient city, with its Victorian architecture and archaic graveyards. Addams was so deeply drawn towards what he saw, he could not rest until he created something one of a kind out of his restless mind.
Many things make this family stand alone in the crowd.
The Addams Family is a closely-knit one, who shares a deep and dedicated interest in Macabre. They always wear black. Their thoughts and actions reflect an easy cynicism and the brevity of life itself but do not strike as sarcasm. Rather they seem pretty upfront about their opinions.

Meet the family!
Welcome to the large spooky victorian mansion that kind of looks like a house of death. The house has strange objects lying around which are considered art — an integral part of Morticia's interior decoration. So here we go!
Gomez is the head of the family, who used to be a lawyer. He is originally from Spain and calls it his ancestral home. He is filthy rich but doesn't care about or keep track of his money.

Morticia is the matriarch of the Addams Family. Over time she has become a symbol of Gothic fashion and culture. She loves to cut roses from stems and cherishes a carnivorous plant. She is a highly refined woman with strong knowledge and opinion on art and culture. She shares an amorous relationship with her husband Gomez. She loves her children and perhaps just a bit afraid of her children becoming well, normal.
” Child of woe is wan and delicate…sensitive and on the quiet side, she loves the picnics and outings to the underground caverns…loves the color black…a solemn child, prim in dress and, on the whole, pretty lost…secretive and imaginative, poetic, seems underprivileged and given to occasional tantrums…has six toes on one foot… ”
These are exact words that Charles Addams used to describe our beloved Wednesday Addams.
Wednesday is the most popular character, right after Morticia. Her character is the most experimented upon. She is the daughter of Gomez and Morticia. Like her parents, she too shares a profound fascination for death-related things. She plays with various torture devices and sometimes is seen experimenting on her brother. She has a pet spider, called Homer. In the Addams family movie of 2019, Wednesday goes to school makes friends. She faces the bully Margaux and saves the family name.
Pugsley is the eldest child of Gomez and Morticia. Charles Addams described him as having “blonde red hair” and “poppy blue eyes” He is a “monster of a boy”. He likes to play with his sister Wednesday. They both share a strong penchant for torturing devices. Pugsley personally likes Guillotine. He has a pet octopus. Once he was seen poisoning his sister as a joke.
Uncle Fester is one of the constant characters. He is weirdly good at electrical conduction. He is a super chubby man with deep-seated black eyes, a bald head, and hunched back. He loves fishing and usually uses dynamite as bait. Sometimes he gets a terrible headache and then he puts his head through a screw press to fix the pain.
Lurch – the Butler
Lurch is the faithful family of Butler. He helps with everything in the house. He is typically called by a hangman's noose bell pull and he shows up and unmistakably asks, ” You rang?”
Lurch is described as tall as a tower, a shambling man with scanty hair. He shares the Addams family's deepest love for macabre and often is described as vivacious by the family members.
The thing refers to a severed hand that roamed around the house, as a kind of ” Hand servant”.
Though no specific origination of the thing is mentioned, there are plenty of stories. One such story is that the entire body of the Thing was so disfigured and grotesque, nobody could bear to look at it but the hand.
The Thing had always been a part of the family.
Apart from the above-mentioned characters, Morticia's twin sister, cousin It, Morticia's mother grandmother Frump were recurring characters.
Addams Family: Long list of predecessors
The Addams family has one of the most popular topics which were used repeatedly to entertain the audience. A family with their idea of normality and the subversive take on the typical American family and dark humor took the audience by storm.
This iconic family gained immense popularity and fabs simply couldn't get enough of it. Quickly it became a television show in 1964 and was created by David Levy and Donald Saltzman. It was shot in black and white. They made sure that Charles Addams' creation did not face any form of disrespect. They did their best to keep the spirit of the creation intact. In an interview Levy said the following —
: “We have made [the family] full-bodied people, not monsters … They are not grotesque and hideous manifestations. At the same time, we are protecting the images of [Charles] Addams' ‘children', as he refers to them. We are living up to the spirit of his cartoons. He is more than just a cartoonist. He's a social commentator and a great wit.”
Later the show was seen in film versions of 1977,1992 and 1998 and 2019 to name a few remarkable ones.
Adult Wednesday Addams: web series
Melissa Hunter has recreated Wednesday Addams ‘ adult version. The series is made like skits. They are too precise and just strong enough to catch Wednesday's adult personality. Melissa herself played the role and did an awesome job to pull off the dark humor and spooky attitude.

The Addams Family is more than a cartoon series. It is a very unique and uncommon enterprise that was created from the gap between Charles Addams's perception of the world and reality. The subversive take on social conformity and orthodox traditions is questioned through comic satire. The artist explicitly didn't have to protest; his characters did.
The constant relevance of the series is undeniable. Its cranky humor and cold detached attitude are something refreshing to watch. Give it a go and you just might be surprised.
