Documentary about Cartoonist Charles Addams

This video tells the story of how Charles Addams (1912-1988) got his start as a cartoonist for the New Yorker and how he developed the macabre cast of characters who eventually became the Addams Family on television and movies—(Gomez, Morticia, Wednesday, Pugsley, Uncle Fester, Grandmama, Lurch,Thing, Cousin Itt, and Ophelia). (Direct link to YouTube video)

Always had a thing for Carolyn Jones! Oh and the rest of the video was good, too. Thanks, James!

I've yet to figure out why, but my Southern Baptist grandmother loved the Addams family. Especially Thing.
Some skeletons in her closet, perhaps.

I loved the Adams family from the start. As for the grandmother of Janet Oliver I am sure she has seen the old horror movie The beast with five Fingers. I saw it on tv back in the the early 60th
