Get ready to snap your fingers! 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.
There are about half a dozen bright spots in the new animated feature “The Addams Family,” but in between them is the unbright and unoriginal storyline about how the real monsters are the ordinary people, not the weird people.
Charles Addams began creating his deliciously macabre characters for one-panel New Yorker cartoons in 1938, but they didn’t get names and storylines until the 1960’s television series, taking the last name from the cartoonist who created them. It was only on the air for three seasons, but just about everyone remembers that finger-snapping Vic Mizzy theme song and TV Guide listed them as one of the all-time top ten television families. The series spin-offs include two live-action feature films, a Saturday morning cartoon show, and a Broadway musical.
