Addams Meet Munsters

Family Freak-Fest Marathon on Halloween 10am-5pm on WPIX!

This Halloween WPIX will feature alternating episodes of The Addams Family and The Munsters beginning with Halloween Addams Style at 10:00am on Halloween day, October 31st. The seven-hour, fourteen-episode Halloween marathon will run until 5:00pm.

Both The Munsters and The Addams Family, which were seen on network television from 1964 to 1966, featured charmingly ghoulish casts. In the former, Fred Gwynne starred as Frankenstein-like Herman Munster opposite Yvonne DeCarlo's Lily in an ensemble that included New York comedian Al Lewis as her father, a 350-year-old member of the Dracula clan who could change himself into a bat. "The Addams Family" is based on the comically macabre cartoon characters created Charles Addams for The New Yorker Magazine. John Astin starred opposite Carolyn Jones in a cast that included Hollywood legend Jackie Coogan.

Family Freak-Fest features episodes of each in which major stars made guest appearances. They include Vito Scotti, who rose to fame in "The Godfather," comedians Paul Lynde and Don Rickles, and entertainer Harvey Korman.
