Cousin Itt and Thing were my father’s favorite characters from The Addams Family, providing fodder for many of his musings about the show. My dad loved humor and was drawn to the show because of its satire. What originated as a family TV series evolved into feature films and a musical. Last Fall, MGM released a cgi-animated reboot, inspired by the characters created by American cartoonist Charles Addams. This winter, bring home The Addams Family on Blu-ray, DVD, and On Demand. Inspired by the film, we’ll show you how to have the perfect Addams Family Movie Night!
The Addams Family
The Addams family was created by Charles Addams and includes the fictional characters of Gomez and Morticia Addams, their children Wednesday and Pugsley, family members Uncle Fester and Grandmama, butler Lurch, and Pugsley’s pet octopus Aristotle. Thing, Cousin Itt, and Kitty Kat were also later introduced.
The premise of the series surrounded this odd, aristocratic family who are completely unaware that they are perceived by others as being at best odd, and at most frightening. Funny, eccentric, and wonderfully weird, The Addams family celebrates the uniqueness of every family while delivering spooky fun all year long.
The latest iteration is a reboot, starring the voice talents of Oscar Isaac, Charlize Theron, Snoop Dogg, Bette Midler, and Allison Janney. The Addams Family is back on the big screen in the first animated comedy about the kookiest family on the block. Funny, outlandish, and completely iconic, the Addams Family redefines what it means to be a good neighbor. The Addams Family features original songs from global music superstars Christina Aguilera, Migos, Karol G, Rock Mafia and Snoop Dogg.
