Having re-watched the 1991 adaptation of the classic comic strip ‘The Addams Family‘ (see that cast here), I was struck by just how insanely horny for each other Gomez and Morticia were all the time and how brilliantly sharp and dark the script was. Naturally I fell into a Wikipedia hole and found myself investigating all the other versions of the creepy, kooky, and all together spooky family – there’s been a cartoon series, a stage musical, and this 90s TV series.
Don’t remember it? ‘The New Addams Family’ only ran for two seasons but still had one more episode than the1960s series.
The new theme tune wasn’t quite as catchy as the original though…
So what happened the cast? Find out after the jump!
