Great Songs With a Halloween Theme: Theme From "The Addams Family"
Theme From "The Addams Family"
Television put on its Halloween costume in 1964 with the debut of the comedy "The Addams Family". We all followed the antics of Gomez and Morticia Addams, their children Pugsley and Wednesday, Uncle Fester, Cousin It, The Thing, and the creepy butler Lurch until 1966. Not a very long run for a show, but it spawned movies and many other products.
Probably the most-remembered thing about the series, though, was the very catchy theme song, complete with appropriate finger-snapping sequences. The words to the song are pretty cool as well.
(snap, snap--you know you want to do it!)
"They're creepy and they're kooky,
Mysterious and spooky,
They're all together ooky,
The Addams Family."
