The Addams Family Cartoon: The Complete Series DVD Review

The Addams Family Cartoon: The Complete Series DVD Review

Synopsis: Be delightfully miserable with the Addams Family as they take to the road in their Victorian-styled RV for spooktacular cross-country quests only they can conjure. From Nashville to New Orleans, New Mexico and Hawaii, these peculiar parents – Gomez and Morticia – treat their family to misadventures, including outwitting a band of gold thieves, freeing the animals from New York’s Central Park Zoo and racing a horse in the Kentucky Derby. They even win a piece of the moon and with Uncle Fester’s rocket, the trip will be a blast! You may remember them as “altogether ooky,” but the spirit of this family is contagious! Scream with joy over this 4-Disc, 16-Episode The Addams Family: Season 1!

Review: The Addams Family made their first appearance in animation format on the Hanna-Barbera cartoon Scooby-Doo.  The gang met the Addams Family and it was so popular that Hanna-Barbera developed a series just for the family.  It debuted in the early 1970s with a Scooby-Doo style sense of humor and went for just one season.   This new four-disc DVD set collects the entire original series, not to be confused with the later 1990s animated series.

The 1970s show consisted of the Addams Family traveling around the country in an RV styled after their Victorian home.  It was quite a sight.  The show is basically one comedy bit after another as the family gets in silly situations with normal people.  The show includes a laugh track and the animation style of the old Scooby-Doo show.  Its really fun to watch, and as a huge Addams Family fan, I'm so happy to have it in our DVD library.
