Addams Family Book Tag!

Let’s continue the Halloween book tag trend with this Addams Family Book Tag.

ZeeZee With Books did an Addams Family book tag several years ago (check it out here) but she based the gifs and such she included in her post on the 1991 movie, which she loved as a kid–and I loved as an adult. However, today’s Addams Family Book Tag was created by White Rose Stories, who loves the 1964 TV show edition of the Addams Family. This is new to ZeeZee because she didn’t know the Addams Family had been around for so long. She thought the 1991 was the first one. Sadly as a Boomer (though barely-1962) I was in the initial Adams family generation. I still love it. I can still sing the schoolyard, un-p.c. version of the theme song from circa 1967, too. (Proud, not proud). ZeeZee included the gifs she saw in Rose White’s post here, in case you’re unfamiliar with the 1964 show too.

This will be a very hard one to do without resorting to old favorites I’ve used to death. Hmmmm……

LULA

Lula is the world’s finest, kick-a## sidekick. Sidekick par excellence! Day glo spandex? You bet! A bucket or chicken or a box of donuts just when you need it? Sure thing. Lula. Sidekick of the Ages. Stephanie Plum would be nothing without her!

Grandma Mazur is almost tied with Lula though. Grandma–the one you want on your side, unless she’s packing a sidearm! She can find the cookie plate at any funeral. That’s a super power.

Uncle Fester — A weird but lovable character
