The Munsters was family friendly. The Addams Family is more sophisticated and wickedly funny. As Gomez notes at one point, "There's a touch of madness" in the Addams household, where "every day is Halloween." Bear rugs growl, a disembodied hand, Thing, delivers the mail, and a torture rack is good for what ails you. The children, Wednesday (Lisa Loring) and older brother Pugsley (Ken Weatherwax), enjoy such hobbies as playing autopsy or exploding model trains. Gomez and Morticia were one of television's most passionate couples, with Gomez being driven to arm-kissing ecstasy whenever Morticia spoke French. The last episode included in this collection, "Amnesia in the Addams Family," is a classic in which Gomez is rendered "normal" following a conk on the head. The look of disgust on Morticia and Lurch's face when he asks for a glass of milk is priceless. The "altogether ooky" extras include three episode commentaries, a featurette on Charles Addams, reminiscences from cast members Astin, Loring, and Weatherwax, a segment on the creation of the classic snap-snap theme song ("They're creepy and they're kooky...."), and the inevitable theme song sing-along. The Addams Family at last on DVD? As Gomez might exclaim: "Capital!" --Donald Liebenson
Same old series, same great laughs. Some episodes do seem to freeze up, though, and even when you go back to them at a different time they won't play. Read morePublished 4 days ago by April Larrechea

|Why just 2/3 of Season One?||
One of the reviewers hits it on the head when they compare it to the expensive full-season Munsters releases...smaller cheaper releases result in more sales (total discs sold, not just $$) than larger more expensive releases.

I just noticed that the end credits from "Cousin Itt Comes to Visit" are missing, replaced instead with the credits from the previous episode, "The Addams Family Splurges". This seems more a mistake than an intentional edit.
