Don't get me wrong. Fred Gwynne as a great actor and could be a very funny guy even when playing a straight role as the judge in My Cousin Vinny. Uh Mr Gambini, "What's a Yute". But the Addams Family thought they were just normal people, everybody else was screwed up, and John Astin made Gomez seem real. So I gotta go with The Addams Family for the win. Jackie Coogan as Uncle Fester was perfect casting too.
