When I was a little girl, I used to dance around my living room, snapping my fingers to the theme song. You know the one I’m talking about- it’s so catchy and it sticks in your head forever. I always loved the quirky Addams family- they were so exciting!
Many of us remember the incredibly popular TV series that ran from 1964-1966 but did you know that it all started decades before? It all began with a cartoonist named Charles Addams from New Jersey. Addams began creating work for The New Yorker, which eventually led to the development of The Addams Family. This beloved show also spawned an animated series from 1973-1975 in which a very small Jodie Foster was the voice of Pugsley.
Turn of the Century authors Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice team up again to generate the hair-raising adventures of the Addam’s. Brickman is responsible for many incredible scripts, including Lovesick, The Manhattan Project, and the thrilling Intersection. Elice, who produced ad campaigns for 275+ Broadway shows such as The Lion King and A Chorus Line, also wrote Double Double and Peter and the Starcatcher. Despite these many accomplishments, Brickman and Elice are most widely known for collaborating together to create the magnificent Jersey Boys, which received a Tony Award for Best Musical.
