The Addams family was originally a cartoon by Charles Addams. With its tremendous popularity, it has now become a movie series, a 1950s sitcom and even an animated film.

There have been television series cartoons on it too so every one now know the famous Addams Family. Everyone knows the Addams Family start up song that’s now like an anthem to this whole series. The most appealing thing about The Addams Family is showing a traditional family which is anything but common. The dialogues are witty and outrageously funny. I think you’ll find the appeal in just the quotes below.
