The Addams Family Television Series 1964-1966
One of the unforeseen bonuses was that my son, James, took to it instantly. I had absolutely no expectations of him liking it, and in fact, I thought the black and white might be off-putting for a kid of his generation. But no. To my pleasant surprise, he finds the antics of Lurch and Uncle Fester hilarious, and he digs Gomez pouncing upon Morticia's arm with kisses every time she utters a phrase in French.
James has since watched the Raul Julia and Anjelica Huston movie versions, but although he really enjoyed them he thinks the original television series is better... that's my boy!
