Did you know that the popular macabre sitcom of the mid-1960s, The Addams Family, originated as a cartoon in the “New Yorker”? Cartoonist Charles “Chas” Addams was known for his dark and twisted humor. In his cartoons, he created a series of off-beat and wacky characters that he referred to as the Addams Family. These characters, and the weird and spooky situations they encountered, were so well received among the “New Yorker” readers that he was asked to join forces with TV producer David Levy to develop the television series of the same name. Among the creepy characters on the show were Morticia and her husband, Gomez, their children, Wednesday and Pugsley, their butler, Lurch, along with Uncle Fester, Cousin Itt, and Thing.
