The Addams Family

Gomez, the Reluctant Lover
Pugsley begins to act strange, Gomez and Morticia begin to wonder why and ask Pugsley straight out who admits he is in love...with his teacher. After finding a love letter to Morticia from Gomez, Pugsley re-writes the letter only for the teacher to think Gomez is in love with her.

Feud in the Addams Family
Abigail Addams the prominent socialite is in a feud with Gomez and may sue him for his money, another socialite Mrs Courtney knows nothing of the feud is invited to the family while Wednesday wants Mrs Courtney's son Robespierre to be her boyfriend.

Gomez, the Cat Burglar
There is a cat burglar in the area and it's Gomez who is committing these burglaries while sleep walking, will hypnotherapy cure him?

Portrait of Gomez
Strife Magazine call but left no message, Gomez may win "man of the year" and tries to get the perfect picture done but he can't find his own photographer and goes to lengths to get the perfect picture taken.

Morticia's Dilemma
Don Javier Francisco de La Mancha Molinas has come to town to honor a contract that was signed by his grandfather and Gomez Grandfather, it states that Gomez should marry his daughter, with slight deafness and language barriers will bring more problems to both sides.

Christmas with the Addams Family
Neighbour Mr Thompson once told Wednesday that there was no witches, now he has told her Santa Clause does not exist, how can the family prove he does exist...by getting uncle Fester to dress up like him, when he gets stuck in the chimney what will the family do?

Uncle Fester, Tycoon
Uncle Fester is getting married...to a bearded lady, he is not financially ready and graduates from business school, he seeks a job. The family begin to worry and call a psychiatrist to help him get rid of his confidence.

Morticia and Gomez vs. Fester and Grandmama
Cheerful blue skies and sunshine, the weather is making the family miserable, Gomez and Morticia decide to go on holiday and hire a Governess to babysit. Grandma and Fester feel disappointed only to be told they spoil the children. With a luggage mix up the governess may not be suitable to look after the children.

These episodes seem to be getting stupid and stupid yet I can't help but laugh at them, even the Christmas episode can you really see Fester being the happy jolly saint Nick? Seeing him in a shopping mall would put any children off Christmas

The Addams Family

Fester Goes on a Diet
Uncle Fester's French Pen Pal is coming to visit and he has told her some white lies and tries to get in to shape, Gomez and Morticia think he is unwell and call on a doctor.

The Great Treasure Hunt
Gomez and Morticia find a treasure map that belonged to Peg-Legged Addams, they hire to sailors to help for the loot only for the sailors to try and steal the map.

Ophelia Finds Romance
Morticia's sister Orphelia comes to visit with her new boyfriend who the family think he is a fraud and try to prove it.

Pugsley's Allowance
Gomez and Morticia are shocked when Pugsley announces he wants a job and goes out looking for one. When the neighbours are needing their attic cleared, bush trimmed and car washed Pugsley is always happy to help.

Happy Birthday, Grandma Frump
Granny Frump's birthday is approaching, Morticia decides to send her away to a beauty farm only for fester to say she could be going into a home and decides to show how active she still is.

Morticia, the Decorator
Morticia decides to take up decorating, the neighbours think she can help with the interior of their house.

Ophelia Visits Morticia
Orphelia's new boyfriend Montrose has signed up for the peace core, Fester decides he should join up and bring Montrose home but he needs to start training.

These episodes were funny but not as funny as the previous episodes, was good to see Margaret Hamilton return as Granny Frump and George Cisar made up to look like Uncle Fester.

One question is David supposed too be straight? His slept with the reception girl but I'm not convinced at all that he is!
From Wikipedia:

"David's character also garnered attention as one of the first openly pansexual characters depicted on television. The casual treatment of his sexuality and the absence of any homophobia has also been noted as rare for television. In 2019, Schitt's Creek won two Dorian Awards and was nominated for a GLAAD Award for its representation of LGBT characters."

The Addams Family

Addams Cum Laude
After problems at school, Wednesday and Pugsley are enrolled in a private school run by truant officer Sam Hillard. Morticia and Gomez feel the children aren't getting a proper education so Gomez buys the school.

Cat Addams
Kitty Cat has lost his appetite so the family call a veterinarian who isn't aware Kitty Cat is a full grown lion, unaware how to deal with the family pet Morticia thinks the vet has low confidence and tries to help the doctor.

Lurch's Little Helper
The family think they are working Lurch too much and decide to get him a helper, a robot which Lurch begins to take a disliking to as he feels the robot is pushing him out of a job.

The Addams Policy
Uncle Fester is eager to test his new Flame Thrower, when he sets the stuffed bear on fire, the family's insurance won't pay out, they decide to help Mr Digby to set up his own insurance company for the family.

Lurch's Grand Romance
Morticia's school friend Trivia visits the family and Lurch is smittenby her, Trivia is only interested in show business and the family convince her that Lurch will be more exciting than show business. Grandma decides to whip up a love potion.

Ophelia's Career
Orphelia comes to visit, upset at her latest Beau so the family think on a career for her, maybe she could be a opera singer.

This took longer than expected to get through but was worth it, John Astin and Carolyn Jones make the perfect couple and parents any children want, nothing seems to bother them except good weather.

Jackie Coogan who played fester was always a laugh even putting a light bulb in his mouth to test his watt and always wanting to shoot someone in the back.

Maria Blake (Blossom Rock) suited the part of Grandmama who had ideas that never really worked well and always seem to side with Fester.

Lisa Loring and Ken Weatherwas played the Addams children Wednesday and Pugsley who always seem to be into mischief especially playing with dynamite and other assortment of toys that would make any parent cringe.

Ted Cassidy who played Lurch was originally to be a silent character ad libbed the "You Rang" words and that was it he landed a speaking role with one smile that either you laughed at or he creeped you out, surely the makers could have brought out more seasons.

Show like this and love thy neighbour would never get shown on tv these days,
Strange isn’t it the generation that’s most likely to moan are the ones who’ve grown up on South Park and family guy,
Was flicking through tv other week and decided to watch a old episode of Coronation street, when you watch adult shows you have to type in the security code for shows that aren’t family viewing I had to do that for the episode of coronation street, the one where everyone found out Haley was a transexual, how pathetic that.

Seriously a code for that? hate to think what UKGOLD would do if they show that during the day. I did look for Love Thy Neighbour but HMV didn't have it that's the next think on my watch list

Couple of month back comedy channel was showing American pie the reunion, thought I’ll watch it because I haven’t seen it for a while, didn’t bother they completely cut out the whole entire opening scene which I’d say is about 5 min,
The being offended, censoring shows, having warning etc is seriously getting out of hand and beyond a joke .

1999 UK Biggest Hits

A fine series ended on a flat note (Due to me not liking most of the songs on the list) but certainly worth watching just for the stories behind the songs alone.

Alex James (Of Blur) was the star for me.
