They’re Creepy and They’re Kooky …

The Addams Family is an American TV show based on creepy and kooky characters created by New Yorker cartoonist Charles Addams. The black and white comedy series aired on the ABC network from September 18, 1964 to April 8, 1966.

The family is headed by patriarch Gomez Addams, who simply adores his perennially black-clad wife Morticia. According to the Internet Movie Database, Gomez and Morticia Addams were the first married couple on American television implied to have a sex life. The pair were known to call each other by many pet names, including Bubeleh (Yiddish), Cara Mia (Italian), Mon Cherie (French), Querida Mia (Spanish), Querido (Spanish), and Cara Bella (Italian).

They Really are a Scream

Gomez and Morticia live in a museum-like home with the eccentric Uncle Fester, Grandmama, and their two children, Wednesday and Pugsley. Lurch the butler tends to the family, frequently assisted by Thing, a disembodied hand that pops up from hinged wooden boxes located throughout the home. Storylines revolve around other family members, including the hair-covered, gibberish-speaking Cousin Itt and Morticia’s older, blonde sister, Ophelia Frump, also portrayed by Carolyn Jones.

The Addams Family is often compared to The Munsters, since the shows aired during the same two seasons and appealed to the same audience. Both shows had catchy theme songs and used a laugh track. The Addams Family theme song was written and composed by Vic Mizzy, who also created the theme song for Green Acres. Neat … Sweet … Petite! Celebrate Halloween in its macabre glory with Addams Family costumes, definitely one of the funniest TV show Halloween costume ideas.

Cousin Itt Costumes

Actor Felix Silla surely had one of the most unique jobs in Hollywood, portraying the excessively hirsute Cousin Itt. Here are a couple versions of the Cousin Itt costume.

Thing Crawling Hand

Thing, the disembodied hand, was usually portrayed by Ted Cassidy. When Lurch had to be on camera at the same time as Thing, the show’s associate producer Jack Voglin lent a hand. Thing was usually a right hand. Ted Cassidy occasionally used his left hand to see if anyone would notice. The Thing Crawling Hand is a moving toy that is activated by sound. If you’re looking for classic TV show costume ideas, Thing is the perfect accompaniment. Thank you, Thing!
