Monstrous Sitcoms


The American public was treated–during the 1960’s–to NOT ONE, BUT TWO different TV sitcoms about the funny life lived by monsters.

There was the ADDAMS FAMILY, a fictional TV family based on the creepy New Yorker cartoons of Charles Addams. Best described as “macabre,” the TV series featured the Addams Family along with the butler, Lurch, Cousin Itt and Thing (a hand-in-a-box).

Then, there was the MUNSTERS. The show recreated a number of movie monster motifs, including Fred Gwynn as Frankenstein’s Monster and Al Lewis as a lovable VAMPIRE,Grandpa.

BOTH shows hit American TV screens in the 1960’s: the Munsters running from 1964-66 and the Addams Family for two seasons ’64 and ’65.

Both TV series showed the LOVABLE qualities of the monstrous, with anything else usually being little more than a MISUNDERSTANDING between people of good will.

BOTH series lived on long after their TV debuts, mostly in films, syndication and reunion shows.  In this regard, the ADDAMS FAMILY was particularly long-lived.

BOTH shows were parts of the TV propaganda campaigns were have been waged against the American people for years.

CAN the reader guess what themes those shows featured?

It is not YET too late–although time is surely running out: there is still a LITTLE time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

Time is Running Out: Today is the Day of Salvation


“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
