Morticia Addams & Lily Munster Are Two Spooky Cool Moms

I grew up watching both The Addams Family and The Munsters in syndication. I always loved both those shows. Each show had their own spooky beautiful matriarch. The Addams Family had Morticia Addams, played by Carolyn Jones, and The Munsters had Lily Munster, played by Yvonne De Carlo. I actually dreamed about having either of these characters as my mom. I always thought that would have been so cool. I guess it shows what kind of kid I was. lol

Mondo said...

Lily Munster was my fave of the two - I think I had a t-shirt with her on during my teens

Keith said...

Hey Lenore. Thanks. Yeah, I love their names.

Keith said...

Hey Dave. She was my favorite too. That's cool about the t-shirt.

I love these two so much. They were some of my favorite shows when I was growing up.

Wolf Boy said...

I would have loved to have had one of these women as my mom. That would have been cooler than my real mom. lol

Keith said...

Hey Phoebe. Thanks. Both of these shows were really cool. I still watch them when I can.

Keith said...

Hey Wolf. I hope your real mom isn't reading my blog. lol

Rev. Phantom said...

I'm probably more of a Lily man myself, but I love both of these ladies.

Jennifer Fabulous said...

I think they would make awesome moms too! Life would never be boring. LOL

Keith said...

Hey Rev. Thanks. Most people I know seem to prefer Lily. I do.

Keith said...

Hey Jennifer. Thanks. You are so right. There would always be something going on there.

Morticia was hottt...slinking around in black!

Keith said...

Hey Naughty. I know exactly what you mean.

Mrs. M. said...

i think Morticia and Gomez Addams are the sexiest couple ever (both the original and the Anjelica Houston/superhot Raul Julia versions). After all those years of marriage and two kids they are still hot for one another and can't keep their hands off each other. I always saw that as the way things should be. They may be dark and gothic but they are the quintessential in love married couple.

Keith said...

Hey Mrs. M, You are so right. I did always think Gomez and Morticia were a great couple. They definitely were still in love and lust for one another. All the years and a couple of kids had done nothing to damper their feelings for one another.

The Haute-Shopper said...

I agree both would be really cool moms... then again, having a mom who's slightly morbid and doesn't mind spooking out the people you don't really like is never a bad thing ;-) Hope you're having a great Thursday!

Jay Amabile said...

I'd like to have at both of them.

Keith said...

Hey Haute. Thanks for commenting. I couldn't have said it any better myself. I could just imagine having a mom like either of these to have put a real scare into the kids I couldn't stand when I was growing up.

Keith said...

Hey Jay. Me too.

nookie said...

The Munsters didn't aired here so my fav is Morticia:)

Pop Champagne said...

haha everytime I dye my hair back to black my friends say that I look like cousin it. Morticia was hottt even in the spooky way!

lorenabr said...

Really cool show original. Always watched it as a kid.

Stephanie said...

WOW, I love Lily!!!! She is gorgeous to start off with, and I remember watching that show in the afternoons in reruns. What a great show. It was so cute, but with a dark element to it too. :)

Scott (gotankgo) said...

you know both would go all out for Halloween

Elizabeth Marie said...

I want to be a cool Mom like this one day! :)

Gabbi said...

You do a great halloween vibe Keith! I was so obsessed with Morticia too as a kid... I wanted to secretly be her. Such elegance.♥

Keith said...

Hey Nookie. Sorry you never got to see The Munsters.

Hey Pop. If you're cousin It, then cousin It is very beautiful. Yeah, Morticia was always hot to me.

Keith said...

Hey Lore. Thanks. Glad to see you're a fan too.

Keith said...

Hey Steph. Thanks for commenting. I know how much you enjoyed both these shows. Lily was always beautiful. I think these shows have both been on pretty much all the time.

Keith said...

Hey Scott. Sure thing. Halloween would be so awesome with them.

Hey Liz. I'm sure you definitely will be.

Keith said...

Hey Gabbi. Thanks. I'm glad you enjoyed this post. I had fun putting this one together since I love both these women.

K and S said...

I like 'em both but The Munsters was always my favorite. Fred Gwyne was so great in that show.

Keith said...

Hey K&S. Thanks for commenting. I did always like the Munsters better.

Farbror Sid said...

... back in the sixties I watch The Addams Family in Swedish television. So it was very popular.

Keith said...

Hey Sid. That's really cool that it aired in Sweden.

Drake said...

Keith said...

Hey Drake. LOL I know what you mean.
