Better Neighbors: Addams Family vs. The Munsters

Post by MacynSnow »

My idea for this simple: Who would be Better neighbors, the Addams or Munsters and why? No violence is involved, but remember that there's ALWAYS violence involved when it comes to Gomez and Company....

Either family seem to be good people and good neighbors. It's the other people that tend to be weirded out by them. Almost every episode shows how gracious and loving in their own unique way. But for me, personally, I like the Addams Family more. Dunno why. :lol:

In Addams' original comic strips, the characters were much more malevolent than they were in the TV show; the movies restored a fair bit of that edge and extended it a bit.

So the Munsters would probably be better neighbors, as they were conceived that way from the beginning.

I will admit I haven't had a chance to watch the Munsters in quite some time (I'm trying to fix that failing), I have watched the original TV series.

In that one the Addams are very nice people who would give you pretty much anything if they thought you needed it.
However they also tend to blow things up, have loud unusual pets, do unusual things in the yard, and are responsible for a nearby swamp not being drained by the city.

So, really good people, but a little oblivious to how their actions might affect you. You'd probably have to be dealing with noise issues on a regular basis.

And reselling your house might not be so easy ;~)

Well, if you lived near them of your own volition, you're probably a bit on the unusual side yourself.

I believe more than one character in that series purchased their place assuming that the Addams' place was abandoned ;~)

Your not wrong on that. If you pay attention, in the first 6 episodes they have various people mention that the place is abandoned.
