You can stream the original tv show on Netflix (but not on Hulu).

Needless to say, when we bought a house I spent a lot of time tracking down a wicker peacock chair like Morticia’s.

I haven’t seen The Addams Family: A New Musical, but it has a nice website.

Alas, none of Addams Family cartoons are available for browsing on the Cartoon Bank, but you can find a number of collections for sale or at your local library, including the excellent Charles Addams: The Addams Family: An Evilution, and Chas Addams Happily Ever After: A Collection of Cartoons to Chill the Heart of Your Loved One and Chas Addams Half-Baked Cookbook: Culinary Cartoons for the Humorously Famished.

It’s not showing up on the google doodles index yet so if you missed the google image on the main page on Saturday, here it is:
