“They’re creepy and they’re kooky; Mysterious and spooky; They’re all together ooky – The Addams Family”… Sure I might have started the teaser trailer post (seen HERE) with that same introduction but now that we have the first full on trailer I couldn’t help myself. In case this is news to you, those crazies in the Addams Family will be starring in a brand-new animated feature and now its time to get a slightly better look. This MGM feature opens on Halloween.

Piercing Ken Thoughts: So I’ve already mentioned that I grew up on the original show when it was being broadcast in syndication. The original series ran from 1964-1966 and since I was born in 1965 I wasn’t getting a lot of television in at the time. I loved the show and its overall quirkiness and feel that this animation captures a lot of fun and what the characters were all about. They have a star studded cast of voice actors and though its months away I am still considering seeing this one in the theaters. What did you think about it? Chime in down below. Thing will be still be approving all topical submissions immediately.
