Halloween Countdown #9

The Munsters are to The Addams Family as beer is to Beaujolais.

Compare. Contrast. Discuss.

The frog queens favorite subject Halloween and/or scary stuff!

I am going to go out on a limb and speak for the whole Davis Graveyard crew.....of course, Addams Family!!!!....I mean who does not want to be Morticia (okay, Lilly Munster was pretty cool too, but if I had to choose....Morticia wins....hands down) or Gomez.

And John Astin....oh my! Frighteners! Years and years after The Addams Family, Peter Jackson tapped him for the lead ghost in his (underrated) movie. Of course!!

And then there is him at Edgar Allan Poe in - Once Upon Midnight. The man is a icon in my book for that alone!! (Which I have not seen, but I hear is fascinating. John, please come to Portland!!!)

His dedication to the horror/Halloween genre, makes him my choice.

Disagree with me. will you!?!? :D

Honestly.... Jeff and I resemble Lilly and Herman....but, in our hearts, we want to be Gomez and Morticia

Frog queen is off to haunt her graveyard and send my minions your way!! - You have been warned!! :)

I SO totally agree with you!

Mead said...

Chris, thanks for linking back to me on Frog on the Pumpkin; I hope your readers bite(as it were)! Rumor has it that Davis Graveyard is going to outdo even itself this year; true??

And Jeanne, The Candy Corn Chronicles is fabulous. Where have you been all my life?

Addams Family. Hands down.
Munsters is great. Watch the dvd's a lot.
But Addams Family edges them out in every category but theme.
Morticia, to be specific Carolyn Jones' Morticia, has been a crush of mine since I was a kid. Gorgeous, alluring, sophisticated, matriarchal, yet willing to make frog noises.
When I was a kid I used to hide bubble gum cigars in the house so I could pull them out like Gomez.

Addams Family. Is this really a challange? Round of applause for the Munsters but really, Addams Family wins.

I'm with The Munsters all the way. I don't know I just always enjoyed that show a lot more than The Addams Family. I just love Fred Gwynne! Not to mention The Munsters have an awesome set of wheels!

Chris 'Frog Queen' Davis said...

Anytime Mead! :)

The yard is up and running and we are busy, we get 100s of visitors each night. Astounding.

And yes, Candy Chronicles is great blog!! We love her!

Back to haunting the graveyard!

I'm a Munsters guy myself.
I was always a bit unnerved by the Addams Family.

As a child, I wished I could pal around with Herman and Grandpa.

thank you.

ps: i would like to bend knee at this time to raul julia (may his soul at this very moment be enjoying incomprehensible bliss along with plenty of hanky panky) and the incomparable, remarkable, indescribably beautiful: anjelica huston.
