In the world of pop culture addicts, there are Munsters people and Addams people. Me, I’m more a Munsters guy (because I'm a classic Universal monsters fan, probably), but I love the spooky, altogether ooky Addams clan, too.

CBS/Fox has collected their three previous DVD releases into one attractive box set, containing all 64 half-hour episodes of the 1964-1966 television series on nine double-sided discs.

The set also contains a slew of special features, including commentaries by cast members, crew and fans, still galleries, retrospective featurettes, trivia quizes and even theme song karaoke. The full-frame, black & white transfers are remarkably nice, with only minimal age-related wear and tear, and the original mono soundtrack is sharp and clear.

For fans of the show, this is a must-have.
