      Great presentation of a true classic sitcom

      The Addams Family doesn't seem to make the television rerun circuit nearly as often as the often-compared, but totally different in tone and humor, sitcom The Munsters. Even when it does, they are invariably the syndication prints which have been cut for time. The only previous release I was aware of that featured the original broadcast length prints sourced from the negatives were the 6 LaserDisc volumes published by Lumivision in the early 90's, which were admittedly pristine prints, but they stopped after only 24 episodes and there were no extras. Well, MGM came to the rescue several years ago with this box set that presents all 64 episodes in their original broadcast length prints in fantastic quality considering both their age (the negatives had aged at least another 15 years since a Lumivision used them for the LD releases) and the fact that ownership has changed hands several times in the decades since the Addams Family first entered probably somewhat perplexed at first U.S. Television viewers' homes. Best of all, MGM went all out with the extra features including the surviving members of the cast. Bought it during a 50% off sale, but this box set is worth every penny of its full retail price. You just can't go wrong with the Addamses!

      The Complete Series is Completely Creepy and Kooky

      The Addams Family is a classic tv show, and here it a box set of the complete series. It's a strange show, but and probably a little bit ahead of its time, but has great jokes and a great cast. Way better than The Munsters! This collection has the entire series. The dvd extras are a bit weak. There are a few commentaries with the actors that played Wednesday, Pugsley, and Cousin Itt, and a show biographer, but there really isn't anything extraordinary about them. I would suggest skipping them unless you are a die-hard fan. Overall, this is a great set.

      Purchased this recently, after having not seen it since it appeared on TV after school back in the mid sixties. It was every bit as great as I remembered it to be. Very few sitcoms today are actually funny. However I was laughing the very first episode that played. I realize that this is not in blue ray and it is shot in black and white, but there is something about the black & white that makes the house and characters spookier. I just couldn't be happier with my purchase. It is great to relive on of my all time favorite programs again!

      Most people probably don't know this show, they probably only remember the amazing 90's movies, but this TV show is a great collection. The characters are entertaining and it's a charming old show, it's interesting to see how the characters who are supposed to be these dark grim figures, are the most loving accepting family ever. It's a definite worthy buy.

      Nothing beats the original Addams Family TV series. This is a great boxed set with all the episodes. When I first came across some of the episodes airing on TV, I wasn't sure whether the old black and white series could hold my attention. However, soon I was addicted and found myself looking to collect the boxed set. The price was great at Best Buy and now I'm hooked on this quirky comedy series!

      ...Mysterious and spooky They're all together ooky The Addams Family!” (Snap! Snap!) This will be a great Halloween television series to share with the grandchildren during the month of October. Join this ghoulish family of Morticia, Gomez, Wednesday, Lurch and cousin It as they try to live life as normal people.

      Gomez is still the best! Todays' children don't know what they missed and as parents its our responsibility to show them. If you let them see the movies it may be funny but without seeing the TV shows they really don't understand why. These are great and inexpensive and fun to watch together!

      I watched this show when I was growing up, and loved it! The entertainment value has not diminished over the years. Sure, the movies are more polished, but the comedy survives anyway. Remember, this is a show that was made in the '60s, and you'll enjoy it all the more.
