    I've always wanted to see a Munsters and Addams family crossover film.

    Well to be fair, TAF have been around. LOOONNG time. They started as comics in 1937.

    Then TV shows , then movies....so this is just another iteration of a classic comic.

    Have you watch any modern cartoons? Like Minions or Grinch or Legos... I mean, every other line is a pop culture reference joke. That's it.

    It's like the world has become the Simpsons... but without the quality sense of humor.


    I mean, here you have a family ripe for comedy from the get-go -- derisive at its core, taking the opposite view to make its humorous points quite literally; it was created to be satirical -- and the best the trailer has is referencing the menacing clown from It?

    I once had a book of Charles Addams cartoons, quite good, but sadly the book is long lost.


    His humor can stand on it's own. No updating or infusion of pop culture is necessary.

    It was this one...

    The whole point of the Addams Family was to point out the "they're different from us" mentality and turn it on its ear. To make you think about what is truly different. It was brilliantly blatant and yet subtle at the same time. I guess that's why its lasted so long. But many people seem to miss the point. Like the filmmakers -- who seem to only recognize familiar shapes that sell.

    It's endured because it hasn't been allowed to be polluted, perhaps until now.

    Wasn't there a 70's Addams family cartoon for a short time?
