The Munsters and the Addams family

The Munsters aired from September 24, 1964 to  May 12, 1966.
Herman and Lily, Grandpa and Eddie and Marilyn.

The Addams family 

(Remember the tune ....   da da da da "snap snap" ( snapping your fingers)
Listen to the tune and see the lyrics HERE
And no it's not the Uncle Fester farted version....
The Addams family started
When Uncle Fester farted
He farted through the keyhole
And paralyzed the cat.

The Addams family also aired from 1964 to 1966. Started the very same week ! Then they aired an animated version of the Addams family now and again, including a movie, and in 1998 to 1999 another show was created, "The New Addams Family". It was filmed in Vancouver.

The Addams household included Gomez and Morticia, Uncle Fester; Grandma Frump; Lurch,( who would say "You rang ??") WednesdayPubert. and cousin Itt. 

Overall, the characters of The Addams Family were wealthy eccentrics who generally stayed at home, while the Munsters were a blue-collar and generally outgoing family of legendary monsters.
