The New Addams Family

The Addams Family arose from the darkly comic vision of New Yorker cartoonist Charles Addams, who created ink-and-pen drawings of a quirky clan with slightly morbid morals.

About The New Addams Family

Whereas most families encourage each other to look on the bright side of life, the unusual Addams characters celebrated the creepy, the crawly, the grisly and the ghoulish with a kind of twisted joy.  But no matter how strange they got, there was always something oddly familiar and touching about them. 

Later, a popular 1960’s television show brought Addams’ creations to life for the first time.  The original Addams Family Series remains popular in syndication more than 30 years after its initial  broadcast.  Since then, the characters have been featured in cartoons and comics.  Addams’ creation also inspired the popular theatrical box-office hits:  Paramount Studios’ “Addams Family” and “Addams Family Values” and “Addams Family Reunion” from Fox Family Worldwide home video.

Now, the Addams clan returns to television for a modern interpretation of the family’s devilish dynamics in “The New Addams Family.”
