What do you think of the Addam's Family
« on: November 01, 2017, 12:13:51 PM »
What do you think of the Addam clan?

That is to say the happy, inspirational dead ones, not the trashy living ones.

What do you think of Gomez, Morticia, Grandmama, all those good and pious monsters? In some ways the monsters are better behaved than those Addam bad boys! My favorite Addam monster of all was the one who helped the Thing compete in athletics. I believe it was because her dear sister Wednesday was a monster herself!

I recall when Lurch died. He seemed like such a class act, if a bit of a lightweight playboy.

There are a lot of rumors/speculation about them too. Was there some secret conspiracy to Uncle Fester's murder? Did he and brother Pugsby misbehave with that shameless strumpet Cousin Itt?



Thoughts please!!!

I'm truly sorry, but I can't keep explaining this simple thing to you over and over again hoping that you'll finally understand something so simple and obvious.

They're creepy and they're kooky,
Mysterious and spooky,
They're altogether ooky.

I love the Addams Family! They have great family values. Not like those kiddie fiddlers in the Catholic church, or those Catholic hospitals that made a mother carry the corpse of a fetus to term because of their idiotic and non-biblical anti-abortion stance, or pretty much any other religion for that matter. You don't see a prophet in the Addams Family marrying a nine year old. When you look at it, I think it's clear that the Addam's Family is better than any religion.

Always question all authorities because the authority you don't question is the most dangerous... except me, never question me.

They live lives I want to live.
They live in the house I want.
I'll creatively demise them all
They will be my always friends
Certainty disturbs me

Yeah, really did like the humour in the Adams family. Wouldn't mind coming back as an undead, got a few people I would love to spook!

I adored the Addams Family growing up.  Safe to say Gomez and Morticia ruined me for heterosexuality -- if I couldn't have that, then forget it.


I recall when Lurch died.

Lurch died?   :cryandrun:

I don't believe in the afterlife, but I hope it's true and I can be a ghost.  I have a list.

:lol: Father Bruno.

I think I may have watched an Addam's Family episode or two when I was a kid...wasn't there a full-length feature film as well? :notsure:

I thought the disembodied hand was creepy.   
I'm just a student of the game that they taught me.

There were two, with Raul Julia and Anjelica Huston as Gomez and Morticia -- but for me, it just wasn't the same.

Yes, perhaps such a thing could really lend a hand when needed.

So... do you think Thing had a network of passages to get from room to room?
Or was there more than one Thing?
Or maybe they were all connected to a much larger creature somewhere in the basement.

I think that Thing is a being whose existence transcends the four-dimensional reality that humans inhabit. As such, Thing requires no passages to appear where Thing desires to appear. I don't believe that the concepts of "one" and "many" can properly be applied to Thing.

That's almost as creepy as having an omnipresent Jesus watching everything you do!  :o

It is not, Thing is benevolent.
To the friends of Thing anyway.
Are you a friend of Thing Phinx?
