31 Days, 31 Childhood Favorites | day six ↳ The Addams Family
When I was a kid, my aunt had exactly two VHS tapes in her house which I could sit and watch rather than socialize with family. One was Grease, the other was The Addams Family. The latter won out just about every time. Thus began my lifelong journey to be more like Anjelica Huston’s Morticia and, of course, to find myself a Gomez by way of Raul Julia.
The Addams Family have existed in numerous iterations since Charles Addams originally created the characters in the 1930s. The film is a great mix of the dark humor of the live-action series and the absurdity of the Hanna-Barbera cartoon, with an incredible cast to pull everything together. Originally Tim Burton was tapped to direct the film, which one can only assume would have led to a Johnny Depp Gomez. Dodged a bullet there.
