In 1965, Ohio’s Saalfield Publishing Company (1900-1977) The Addams Family – A Coloring Book. Based on the ABC-TV TV series (1964 to 1966), the book features Charles Addams’ (January 7, 1912 – September 29, 1988) family relaxing in their impressive home.
you might suppose this book lent itself to being tad monotone, given that Wednesday, Gomez, Morticia, Pugsley, Uncle Fester, Grandmama, Cousin Itt, Lurch and Thing share a liking for black. But that family home was colorful.
