The Addams Family
A show about tolerance of difference…

The Addams Family television show (1964-1966) was a show about tolerance of difference.

And also sort of kinky.

The idea that a penchant for chains or torture could be just an aspect of someone’s quirky personality was pretty radical, in 1964.

It was also played for laughs.
