I haven't seen this show in years and it still holds up today, very funny. The cast is great, all the gags and sight gags, the gloomy atmosphere, dark, brooding way this series is shot is very clever and fascinating even today. I wish they had The Munsters on HULU so we could watch them too. I always favored the Mockingbird Lane crowd over the snapping fingers, but they are fun too. A delightful 25 minutes and not wasted a bit, seems like it is over....in a ....a snap!

Mr. Hillard: I was thinking of more formal education, like reading....
Mr. Addams: What is there for a 6 year old to read?
Mr. Hilliard: Someday she'll be 26....
Mr. Addams: See ya then.....

And it is snappy dialogue like that all the way through without missing a beat (sorry, several puns intended!).
