This week's poll asks Cafe readers to select their favorite member of the family. I doubt if they need much of an introduction, but here goes anyway:
Gomez Addams (John Astin) is a wealthy eccentric who loves his wife Morticia passionately. He is very acrobatic and becomes uncontrollably romantic when Morticia speaks French or calls him "Bubele" (a German expression meaning "darling").
Morticia Addams (Carolyn Jones) is woman of class who dabbles in art and cultivates flesh-eating plants. She can light candles with her fingertips and fence with his husband. She has a sister named Ophelia (also played by Carolyn Jones).
Uncle Fester (Jackie Coogan) is Morticia's wacky but kindly uncle. When he places a lightbulb in his mouth, it lights up.
Grandmama Addams (Blossom Rock) is Gomez's mother (he occasionally calls her "Mamacita"). She frequently mixes potions and conjures up spells.
Lurch (Ted Cassidy) is the household butler. When summoned him by means of a bell pull, the bell's gong shakes the entire house. Lurch then appears, responding with with a baritone" "You rang?"
Wednesday Addams (Lisa Loring) is Gomez and Morticia's six-year-old daughter, who raises spiders and beheads her dolls (which are named Marie Antoinette, Mary Queen of Scots, etc.).
Pugsley Addams (Ken Weatherwax) is Gomez and Morticia' son and Wednesday's older brother. He is the most conventional member of the family, though he does have a pet octupus named Aristotle.
Thing T. Thing (Ted Cassidy) is a disembodied hand that appears out of boxes and other containers.
Cousin Itt (Felix Silla) is Gomez's cousin, a short creature covered head-to-foot in long hair. He speaks in rapid gibberish which only the Addams family can understand.
