Theme from The Addams Family (The Addams Family)

TV and film composer Vic Mizzy wrote the music and engaging lyrics that helped to describe the "creepy . . . kooky . . . mysterious . . . spooky . . . and all together ooky" Addams Family. The show takes a peek at the bizarre family: Gomez and Morticia; their children, Pugsley and Wednesday; Cousin Itt; Uncle Fester; and servants, Lurch and Thing -- who all live together in a musty castle. The show lasted only two seasons, but it lives on in pop culture through reruns, cartoons, movies, and video games.
