October means it's time for spooky toons! We've covered our fair share of supposedly scary (but usually just silly) cartoons on the podcast over the years, but somehow we missed out on an all-time classic: The 90s animated series The Addams Family!

This ooky, kooky, mysterious, and spooky series came at a time when interest in the titular family -- Gomez, Morticia, Wednesday, and Puglsey, with Uncle Fester, Lurch, Thing, Cousin It, and Grandmama -- was running high. The cartoon was released in between the live-action The Addams Family movie and its sequel, Addams Family Values. And everything old is new again as a pair of new animated movies based on the title family is here again, courtesy of MGM. We'll get around to the 2019 feature film at some point (maybe when the sequel arrives next year), but for now, it's back to the 90s to see how The Addams Family holds up.
