The Addams Family: Family Tree (1964)

With Halloween night just a scant few days away, it seemed the perfect time to drop in and spend just a little time with one of the greatest families ever shown on television, the Addams Family. When I was growing up I would have to choose which show to watch after school, the Addams or the Munsters. The Munsters always won out of course…because I loved the Universal Monsters! However, when I hit my early teens I came to realize that I found the Addams Family to be the better show.

In this episode, the Addams Family Tree, which debuted on October 16th, 1964 we find the Addams in a predicament. After Pugsley and Wednesday are called kooks and even inferior because of their family at the birthday party of Harold Pomeroy, Gomez is enraged and demands that his and the Pomeroy family tree be investigated by the Pomeroy genealogist.

  1. I’m an honorary Addams and in that capacity I want to congratulate you on a great post Vic! Considering all the great names they dropped all the time on the show, I wish someone would put together an actual played out family tree.
    Hmmmm interesting project…..
