Series We Loved: The Adams Family

The family appears to be a single surviving branch of the Addams clan. Many other "Addams families" exist all over the world. According to the film version, the family credo is, Sic gorgiamus allos subjectatos nunc (pseudo-Latin: "We gladly feast on those who would subdue us"). Charles Addams was first inspired by his home town of Westfield, New Jersey, an area full of ornate Victorian mansions and archaic graveyards.[2]

They live adjacent to a cemetery and a swamp at 0001 Cemetery Lane, in a gloomy mansion. (In The New Addams Family, the address was changed to 1313 Cemetery Lane, in a reference to a rival show The Munsters[citation needed]). In the Addams Family musical, first shown in Chicago in 2009, the house is located in Central Park.[3]

Although they share macabre interests, the Addamses are not evil. They are a close-knit extended family. Morticia is an exemplary mother, and she and Gomez remain passionate towards each other. She calls him "Bubele",[4] to which he responds by kissing her arms, behavior Morticia can also provoke by speaking a few words in French (the meaning is not important — any French will do). The parents are supportive of their children. The family is friendly and hospitable to visitors, in some cases willing to donate large sums of money to causes, despite the visitors' horror at the Addams's peculiar lifestyle.

Addams began as a The New Yorker cartoonist with a sketch of a window washer that ran on February 6, 1932.[5] His cartoons ran regularly in the magazine from 1938, when he drew the first instance of what came to be called the Addams Family, until his death.[5]

In 1946, Addams met science-fiction writer Ray Bradbury after having drawn an illustration for Mademoiselle magazine's publication of Bradbury's short story "Homecoming", the first in a series of tales chronicling a family of Illinois vampires named the Elliotts. The pair became friends, and planned to collaborate on a book of the Elliott Family's complete history, with Bradbury writing and Addams providing the illustrations, but it never materialized. Bradbury's Elliott Family stories were anthologized in From the Dust Returned in October 2001, with a connecting narrative and an explanation of his work with Addams, and Addams's 1946 Mademoiselle illustration used for the book's cover jacket. Although Addams' own characters were well-established by the time of their initial encounter, in a 2001 interview Bradbury states that Addams "went his way and created the Addams Family and I went my own way and created my family in this book."[6]

*Audience claps*
Thank you, thank you. Now, i know many of you loved these series and ESPECIALLY the movies! which is the very reason why I thought of them. Aaah, i still remember that even as a kid around my 6-7 years old i used to watch those series. I vaguelly remember the cartoons, though the series with the actors from the movie i still remember. I used to be in love with the Wednesday. No, not Morticia like most kids, her I wanted for my mom. *Audience stares at him with a what-is-wrong-with-you look*. What? Anyway, moving on. The Adams family. Never did a show have so much black humor in one show. Never did Goth culture seemed so fascinating and never did Horror became so hospitable. Now...I think I am supposed to say why I loved the show or something right? *Audience moves their heads in agreement* Uhm. Well for starters I kinda find them interesting and I envy them in many ways. As it sais above they might share some rather morbid interests but they are a well form and loving family and even when Wednesday wants to kill her brother he happilly agrees, not to mention that Morticia actually gives Wednesday an axe instead of the knife she was holding. Hell even after all those years I still approach death and harm (myself or on others) with a casual sense of humor *Audience drops jaws and looks at him with shock* .......*Shifting my eyes from left to right*.....HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA im just kidding *Audience leaves a relieved sigh*. There is no axe wielding barbarian waiting to kill you all if you try to leave before im done*switching subjects so the audience does not have time to understand what I just said*. Moving on, to sum things up, Adams family is a show well missed for all of you goth-vampire-morbid-dark-ish people out there that miss the good old black humor and all of those interesting characters. Anyway...i think im done...ill leave Yiota freak out or do the corrections...I let you comment bellow. :P
