Lily or Morticia?

Morticia had more class

Morticia of course. Classy.

Team Lillie especially when she sang that song and played the harpsicord on the episode of the Munsters with the Beatniks.

Morticia, of course. She was sexy, sultry, and so macabre.

How could you not love her as she cut the blooms off all her roses or when she played that weird harp thing and shrieked while she did it?

Morticia and Gomez had sexual chemistry.

Herman seemed asexual, so Lillie was more of a motherly wife.

Carolyn Jones was a beautiful woman who we lost too soon. And the original Addams Family was campy fun.

I never watched the Munsters, even as a young child-. I thought it was stupid.

Herman was a flaming queen. Even as a kid I could see that.

Yvonne DeCarlo was almost 10 years older than Carolyn Jones. She was pretty hot during her early film days.

I loved them both. But I have to give the slight edge to Morticia just for the delighted way she always thanked Thing, the help of which she never seemed to expect: "Why, THANK YOU, Thing!"

Morticia was more interesting. Lily was a sweetheart, but never seemed curious about anything.

Yes. It was overt. They seemed somewhat switchable, but Morticia was the dom more frequently.

Morticia, most definitely.

Morticia was once married to Aaron Spelling.

One was in House of Wax and played a wonderful human who had been waxed alive and place on exhibit by Vinvent Price. The other was married to Moses and gave a beautiful speech about how she would cross any desert and climb any mountain to follow him. How can you compare?

R11- I like the Addams Family but there's no comparison. The writing on the Munsters was far better than the Addams Family.

The Munsters was a far funnier show than the Addams Family.

Morticia (specifically the Angelica Huston portrayal). Carolyn Jones may be the original but she had a very round and sweet looking girlish face (still a phenomenal actress in the role nonetheless) whereas Angelica at the time had this strong more seductive and mysterious dark sinister witchy beauty that bordered on otherworldly.

by Anonymousreply 36May 27, 2024 7:36 PM

R30 With the exception of Lurch and Cousin It, the Addams were human, but eccentric and macabre. The Munsters were based on the monsters from the Universal films.

by Anonymousreply 37May 27, 2024 7:51 PM

^ That's true, they really were nothing alike. The Munsters were your average all-American family that came out of Universal's back lot. Where the Addams Family were actually written to show that even those weird people down the street had the same rights as everyone else. Both shows were kind of a metaphor on the Civil Rights movement of the time. People who looked or acted "different" weren't really all that different

When I was a little kid, there was a cartoon of Addams Family, in color drawn in the style of Charles Addams, but using the voices from the, you know, tv show. That I loved. And I think Jodie Foster played Pugsley! Why do they never show those?? I think it would clean up on streaming.

By the same token, there was a cartoon version of The Partridge Family!! It used most of the original voices. Except Shirley Jones and they changed her character's name to Connie Partridge! That's another ine I'm simply dying to see.

Hardcore GEN X er here in case you haven't noticed!

Angelica Huston back then closely resembled the original illustrations of Morticia best. Gomez is supposed to be a Castilian Spaniard with a hint of Mexican.

Raul Julia and Luis Guzman are both Puerto Rican. Having Wednesday and Pugsley (half French/half Spanish) also played by Spanish actors in the latest iteration is very faithful to the source material even if the acting is a bit uneven at times.
