Blissfully macabre and outrageously morbid, The Addams Family turned the sitcom formula upside-down for two hilariously ghoulish seasons. Interred for almost half a century in the mausoleum of television's golden oldies, the monster comedy series is back, proving that classic humor just won't stay dead in The Addams Family, Vol. 1, exhuming on DVD October 24 from MGM Home Entertainment.

Based on Charles Addams' single panel cartoons that originally ran in The New Yorker magazine, the Addams household featured a grisly array of inhabitants, including dark and dashing Gomez (John Astin, "The Adventures Of Brisco County Jr."); slinky and shadowy Morticia (Carolyn Jones, How The West Was Won); creepy Uncle Fester (Jackie Coogan, The Kid); problem children Wednesday and Pugsley (Lisa Loring and Ken Weathermax); ancient Grandmama (Blossom Rock, Abbott And Costello In Hollywood); hilariously hirsute Cousin Itt (Felix Silla, Spaceballs) and, of course, the ever-faithful silent manservant, Lurch, and Thing, the roving severed hand (both played by Ted Cassidy, Butch Cassidy And the Sundance Kid). The Addams Family, Vol. 1 DVD collection features 22 offbeat episodes, as well as select audio commentary from director Arthur Hiller (Silver Streak), featurettes and a karaoke version of the addictively catchy theme song. The Addams Family, Vol. 1 is available for the suggested retail price of $29.98 U.S./$37.98 Canada.
