The Addams Family 1964-1966 TV Series Review By Logan Strohl

The one that started it all and the one that got me into The Addams Family. The cast is amazing and so is Vic Mizzy's score and the humor is always funny. Most sitcoms now have inappropriate content in it The Addams Family has none of that. It is perfect for the whole family. It's theme song is catchy. you're be singing it even after the show is over.
