Uncle Fester bobbing for apples as Morticia holds a pistol while Gomez looks at the camera

With the way Morticia holds that gun above Uncle Fester’s head, I wonder if there’s a dire consequence if he fails to get the apples!

Morticia, her husband Gomez, and their Uncle Fester are just three members of the macabre and somber-looking but humorous Addams Family. This photo, perhaps either a behind-the-scenes shot or a publicity still for classic “The Addams Family” television series, shows exactly the brand of dark humor that this family has.

“The Addams Family” first aired in the mid-sixties and is based on cartoonist Charles Addams’ New Yorker cartoons of the same name. It stars actors John Astin as Gomez, Carolyn Jones as Morticia Frump, Lisa Loring and Ken Weatherwax as their children Wednesday and Pugsley, Jackie Coogan as Uncle Fester, Blossom Rock as Grandmama, Ted Cassidy and his hand as the butler Lurch and Thing!

    If only TV series were like this still, unfortunately now we mostly get re-runs or reality tv shows that are neither funny or enjoyable to watch, nice article :)
