And not all wives are Donna Reid! I loved watching after school and wished to be like Carol Lindley! Perfect for the times as they to were a changing! xoDebi
The sixties TV show was timelessly wonderful, Debi! I still love watching it and now my son does too. :)
Oh cool, I never knew this! Thanks for posting
My pleasure, Sylvie! :)
I adore Morticia Addams!! I often find that I model myself after her because she's so swanky and proper. I'm really happy that Charles Addams made cartoons more interesting, I simply can't imagine a world without dark humor... It would just be non stop Family Circus or Marmaduke... *shudders*
One of the things I love about Morticia, particularly Caroline Jones' Morticia, is that she manages to be seductive, and even risqué, whilst always maintaining an air of elegance and dignity. She's perfection! ^_^ My dad had a couple of the paperback collections of Charles Addams' cartoons (he's since given them to me) and I couldn't get enough of them as a kid. They definitely shaped my sense of humour!
Happy Birthday to Mr Addams indeed! Lovely post Emma ♥ Like yourself I first discovered this wonderful family as a child and life was never the same afterwards! haha! Charles must have had the most amazing sense of humour and view of life... ~Siobhan xo
He didn't have any children of his own, but I'm sure a lot of kids like you and I were wonderfully influenced by his delightful wickedness when we were growing up, Siobhan! :D ♥
5:00am here ...we will post on this later ... Thank you dear Lady Emma....Difficult keeping up with things.....
My pleasure, Dr. Theda! I'll be by to visit your blog later! :)
I adore that tribute painting, Emma! Raising a glass in dear Mr Addams' honour tonight ♥
Yes, that painting is wonderful, isn't it?!! So poignant! I love the idea of Charles Addams beaming down at his beloved characters, who continue to live on after he has gone! I raised a glass too, Bec! ♥
It's nifty seeing a modeller for Addams' iconic characters!
I think the model is actually his first wife, Barbara Jean Day. Apparently all his wives were Morticia-esque. He definitely had a *type*! ;D
One can only adore the Addams Family.
Couldn't agree with you more, Variations On Light! :D
I never saw much of Mr. Addams' cartoons until I started following your blog so I thank you for introducing me.
My pleasure, Lady M! No doubt I was thoroughly warped by Mr Addams' cartoons as a kid... And I wouldn't have it any other way! ;D
I love the Addams family too. Gomez and Morticia rock.
Yes!! Morticia and Gomez definitely rock, Debra She Who Seeks! Best couple ever!! :D
SO cool... thanks for the pics! :-)
I couldn't possibly let Charles Addams' birthday pass without a bit of a bloggy mention, Lucretia! I'm re-watching the sixties series of 'The Addams Family' at the moment, so I'm in Addams heaven right now! :D
Happy Birthday Charles!!!!!!!!
Great post! I love The Addams Family ;o) I feel like snapping my fingers ;o) LOL! Big Hugs ;o)
I've got 'The Addams Family' TV theme tune as my ringtone, Stacy! Yes. I'm that much of an Addams tragic! ;D
I love that pleased look on his face (on the painting). Looking at our characters is very similar to looking at our children. When we see them happy and loved, we are delighted. I hope his watching and grinning a lot. Happy Birthday to him!
Lovely painting! I absolutely adore Carolyne Jones Morticia and I have two large hard covers of Chas Addams drawings and cartoons.
I'm not being glib when I say this, the Addams family are the happiest couple on the telly. They desire and respect each other and they never raise their voices or snap (except their fingers...)
Now I have the theme song stuck in my head ...... snap, snap! Ali x
