Okay, let’s get the Addams Family cliches out of the way right now: They’re creepy and they’re kooky, mysterious and spooky. (Insert theme music and snapping fingers here.) Need a hand with that opening number? Why, yes. Thank you, Thing.
The Addams Family has been a household name for at least three generations of comedy lovers. If you’re not familiar with the wonderfully dark cartoons by Charles Addams in the New Yorker magazine, then you probably know them from their 1960’s sit-com or the series of movies from the 1990’s.
