The Add-ems Family.

The Addams Family was a television sitcom based on recurring, but previously nameless, characters in the works of cartoonist Charles Addams that appeared in The New Yorker. The series focused on a ghoulish family and their unique view on life, and ran on ABC from 1964 until 1966. The series spawned a number of spin-offs and remakes, including two animated series, two live-action theatrical films (The Addams Family in 1991 and its 1993 sequel Addams Family Values), a second TV series, the direct-to-video feature The Addams Family Reunion, and a Broadway musical.

Charles Adams' characters have become celebrities in their own right, with the characters of Morticia and Gomez ranking #87 on Bravo's 100 Greatest TV Characters, and the theme song ranking as one of the 50 All-Time Favorite TV Themes by TV Guide.
