The Addams Family, the OTHER 1964 sitcom about a macabre family of eccentrics, finally makes its way onto DVD in all its black and white glory. Like The Munsters (which originally debuted 1 week later), The Addams Family ran on television for two seasons, and became more popular in TV syndicated reruns than during its original broadcast. No doubt due to the show's memorable cast and classic theme song by composer Vic Mizzy, who also provided the vocals and fingersnaps.

The Addams Family (who were fleshed out and also named expressly for television by original cartoonist Charles Addams himself) starred Carolyn Jones as macabre matriarch Morticia Addams; John Astin as her wildly enamored husband, lawyer Gomez Addams; Jackie Coogan as Morticia's Uncle Fester; Blossom Rock as Grandmama, Gomez's mom; Ken Weatherwax as son Pugsley; Lisa Loring as daughter Wednesday; Felix Silla as Cousin Itt; and six-foot-nine Ted Cassidy as Lurch the butler and as Thing, the helpful hand that popped out of the boxes throughout the family mansion. It should be noted that Cousin Itt was not a part of the original Charles Addams cartoons, but actually created for the show by producer David Levy.

The Addams Family - Volume One is a 3-disc (572 min.) set which contains 22 [of 34] Season One episodes, meaning you'll be getting the entire 64-episode series in 3 cost-friendly volumes. This collection features Full Frame (1.33:1) video; and mono English, French and Spanish audio. Here is a list of the episodes contained in this volume, plus extras:

1. The Addams Family Goes to School
2. Morticia and the Psychiatrist
3. Fester's Punctuated Romance
4. Gomez the Politician
5. The Addams Family Tree
6. Morticia Joins the Ladies League

THE GOOD NEWS:

1. The Addams Family is FINALLY coming to DVD!

2. It will contain Audio Commentary on the first episode with the director, 2 featurretes, and Theme Song Kareoke.

THE BAD NEWS:

1. It will NOT be the COMPLETE first season it will contain the first 22 episodes making it the first of 3 volumes.

2. The 3 DVDs are double sided with only 3 or 4 episodes on each side! They could easily fit both sides of the disc on one single sided disc.

Finally, America's beloved family of fright in all their horrifying glory has been released on DVD. Twenty two episodes are presented in this compilation of the first season excluding the other twelve episodes of the first season which will be presented in the second volume of this show. Many devoted followers of this series will be delighted to once again indulge in their favorite episodes and to relive the classic moments of hilarity and fright. For the viewer's satisfaction, I have complied an episode guide complete with short synopsizes. Hopefully, this guide will revive your fond memoirs and heighten your anticipation for the release of this delightful show. Enjoy!

EPISODE GUIDE FOR THE EPISODES INCLUDED IN THIS VOLUME:

1. The Addams Family Goes To School

Gomez and Morticia are horrified to discover that they must send their children to school, but in accordance with the law, they must comply. However, when Wednesday reports that the classroom reading includes Grimm's Fairy tales, a novel in which many witches, ogres, and other evil beasts are slain, Morticia and Gomez are repelled.

2. Morticia and the Psychiatrist

Pugsley begins to adopt "normal" habits causing his parents much concern. They promptly attend a psychiatrist in order to replace Pugsley's ordinary endeavors with his typical ghoulish personality.

3. Fester's Punctured Romance

Fester seeks a companion via a matrimonial column in the newspaper and mistakes the wrong person as a response to his add thus causing him to completely abandon the notion of marriage.

I'm going to assume that you've seen The Addams Family at some point, so you know what it's about and probably have fond memories of it. Technically this is a great release. The video is top notch and the sound is very good. It's mono, but that's what they had then, and the quality is excellent.

I had fond memories of this show, but I think I like it even more than I did when it was broadcast in 1964. John Astin is fabulous as Gomez Addams. I'd forgotten just how amazing he was in this role. In fact, Morticia, Uncle Fester, and Lurch are all played to perfection. One thing that appeals to me now that I probably didn't appreciate as a kid is the fact that these characters are such *nice* people. Gomez and Morticia are still madly in love. Gomez is patient and polite. Morticia is impeccably gracious. The kids are polite and respectful, and they all have a positive attitude about everything, including all the "weird" people (as they see them) who show up at their door, with whom they are very patient. Unrealistic? Maybe, but I like happy, friendly, positive people (the real world doesn't have enough of them for my tastes ;-). It amazes me is how well this show holds up. Not only is it funny, but the cast's performances almost make their characters believable.

I haven't watched all the extras, but I did listen to the audio commentary for Cousin Itt Visits the Addams Family and it was very well done. The actors all talked about themselves, other cast members, the making of the show, trivia, and pretty much give you exactly what you want in an audio commentary about a show of this type. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Why only four stars for this release? Because:

- These are double-sided, single-layer disks.
