D. J. David B. Spins Comics-Tunes, Halloween: The Addams Family

The Munsters and The Addams Family premiered within a few days of each other in 1964. Coincidence? Or something more?


(click for a closer look)

Both shows featured monster families and both had killer theme songs. However, only The Addams Family was based on the work of a cartoonist, namely the below pictured Charles Addams (natch).

After a gazillion one panel cartoons in places like The New Yorker beginning in 1938, the monster family created by Addams became known as The Addams Family and the world hasn’t been the same since.

I have a few different versions of The Addams Family theme song in my Comic Tunes archives, but it’s impossible to top the original.

    Damn, I have a jones for Morticia’s Carolyn Jones!

  2. DJ David B. Says:

    Neat, sweet, petite!

  3. Michael Burton Says:

    Monsters? Why, they’re just unique individuals who value their privacy.

    Perhaps Craig should supplement Wacky Wonder Woman Wednesdays with Morbid Morticia Mondays? Just brainstorming here, that’s all…

    The tune brings back fond memories. At least part of the series is now out on DVD, and you’ve got me sorely tempted to toss one of the collections into my cart on Amazon.

I.T.C.H is looking forward to your thoughts. Please, no flame. Thanks!
