The Addams Family v The Munsters

munsters vs addams family

To me The Munsters is like a Rob Zombie video or song. The show is currently aired in a two-hour block on Sunday evening. Then we bring in Mortisha and Lilly. Lily is hotter Though that's also one downside to any franchises - Addams are adaptations from the cartoons, so recasting isn't so problematic if you can get the tone right. The humour was better developed.

A full-page ad heralding its upcoming debut appeared in the March 25, 1964, issue of the New York Times, dominated by the very same Charles Addams drawing of the family posed in front of their creepy digs that had given David Levy the idea for the series in the first place. The title sequence had light, happy music picked up from the movie instead of the more hip theme that was to come. Although the A-team is never able to hit anything smaller than a jeep with their automatic weapons, they always held their own in the hand to hand department. And you're dead wrong about Lurch-- he couldn't help the Addamses at all-- he's just too slow. Naturally, Grandpa, Lily, and Eddie will be okay - as in all good sitcoms, by the start of the next episode everything will be exactly the way it was at the start of the previous episode - heads and all. Note: Richard Dawson and Kent Brockman are both mangled in the melee, of course.

Thus we find that the Addamses moontan, enjoy rainy days, clip the heads off of roses they value the thorny stems and generally take pleasure in dangerous pursuits. The Addams' Family always felt a bit languid for my tastes. The combination of Lurch, Bull, and Roz makes the heart shudder. It's simple to center one on the Addams' podium. I can't say why both shows appeared at the same time. In the case of the Munster's, because they humanises, goofy, and less dark, not much seems could be done with them after the show.

Addams vs. Munsters. Which family did you love?

We'll start with the Addams Family. That crooked smile he had was the hallmark of the Addams brood. Okay, I got nothin' better to do. She is often the voice of reason, if not the moral compass of the family. The following run-down on the characters is based on the core canon of the two shows and does not take into account alternate interpretations feature films, animated shows, etc. She was in her mid 40's when she did the Muensters and there zero pictures from that time of any womenz in a string bikini like that anywhere.

In the case of the Addamses this is based in the unnerving realization that all is not hunky-dory, brought on by continued contact and in the case of the Munsters this is more visceral and immediate reaction to the openly otherworldly nature of the clan. He was also in The Phantom Tollbooth, but that was animated, and so doesn't count here. Universal has today announced the complete second season of The Munsters. These were sexual creatures and viewers noticed. The Addams are not the all-American family but are certainly an American dream family; they come from old money, are extremely well-off, and have a pedigree on both sides. I never really into them, minus the dark aspect. As to the Russian ep, I think you are missing the point of that script, which is that Russians are stupid and childlike, and don't know anything about the world around them.

Get a jump on Halloween with our Munsters vs. Addams Family feud

As Lonemagpie says, they were monsters trying to be normal. Lurch would flail wildly but slowly and Herman would give him one punch square in the nose. I also think they had a better theme song. The smoke is beginning to clear now and I can see. Mentioning Herman Munster and Boo Radley in the same sentence is a felony! I've heard that the whole idea behind the Munsters was that it was supposed to be social commentary, in that these strange people move into a nice normal neighborhood and try to fit in, but are generally only tolerated by their neighbors, so you're definitely right about the self-conscious part of it.

The Great Debate: The Addams Family vs The Munsters

Oh yeah, what the hell is Eddie supposed to be? Because of what they get into, Lily actually takes on the mother role with both of them more than loving wife and daughter. For me, although I love them both, The Munsters stands out as the better show. The unaired pilot episode, written by , explained the 22-year gap through an accident in Grandpa's lab that put the family to sleep. Lurch would then be playing the big harpsicord in the sky. Gomez often delivers lines in a Groucho manner and style. Mattel issued two Herman Munster Dolls, one was a talking doll and the other was a hand puppet both having chatty rings that you could pull to make them talk utilizing Gwynne's actual voice that were issued from 1964 until around 1968. The network executives are saved only by a last minute call to Pat Sajak, who awakens from his perennial daze to descend on Richard like the plague, and finally takes Dawson out with his Mediocrity of Doom.

The Addams Family vs The Munsters

Herman is such a clumsy, but lovable buffoon. To write the Munsters you simply take the normal behavior and embellish it a bit. The Addams Family often suggests at the supernatural Grandmamma is something of a witch, Fester can make light bulbs glow, seemingly supernatural resistance to damage but never answers the question. The Addamses know they are different, but consider their behavior the norm and feel sorry for us for not enjoying their reality. Dave Clearly the match would have to go the Addams'. I lean toward the Addams, but I like the Munsters, too.
