The Addams Family

The weird and creepy, but also hilariously entertaining Addams family first appeared in a comic published by Charles Addams, American comicwriter, in 1938 in the weekly New Yorker. The familiar comic-book characters, father Gomez and mother Morticia, their children Wednesday and Pugsley, uncle Fester, grand-mother, servant Lurch, The Thing and many others were also featured in a popular television series in the 1960s. The Addams family acquired even more fame due to two films by Barry Sonnenfeld, made in the early 1990s, starring Raúl Juliá as Gomez, Anjelica Huston as Morticia, Christina Ricci as Wednesday and others.

The Addams family became so well-known in American culture and abroad that it was declared »the most iconic American family, along
with the Kennedys«. According to their relevance and cultural impact, they were compared to the Roosevelts and the Kennedys, claiming that they were so unambiguously American it was difficult to discuss the history of the country without their name being mentioned. The Addams family made an outstanding impact on American comic books, television and film production, and inspired the emergence of Gothic subculture and its extravagant fashion style.

The author of the comic book invented the Addams family as a satiric version of a model American family of the 20th century. He portrayed its members as eccentric aristocrats with bad taste and bizarre hobbies that often seem unusual or scary to people around them.
