The Addams Family In New York
The Addams Family In New York is a short animated film that was part of the animated television series, which started in 1973 by Hana-Barbera. The Addams Family takes a vacation to New York, where they get swindled into spending their money on fake properties by some no good grifters.
This is a hilarious little gem produced in true classic Hana-Barbera style. It's not as creepy as the original live action television series, but it certainly is kooky!
This film also features the extremely talented voices of Oscar-winning Jodie Foster and Jackie Coogan, who also played the character of Uncle Fester in the original television series.
This is definitely a film made for the whole family to enjoy, as it has been rated G for general exhibition and has a running time of approximately thirty minutes.
Hanna-Barbera Home Video originally released the Addams Family In New York in Australia on VHS in 1991.
