The Addams Family is an American television series based on the characters in Charles Addams' cartoons from The New Yorker magazine.

The 30-minute series was shot in black and white and aired for two seasons in 64 installments on ABC from September 18, 1964 to April 8, 1966. The Addams Family ranked 23rd in its first season, with a 23.9 rating. The show is the first adaptation of the characters to feature The Addams Family Theme, written and arranged by Vic Mizzy, and its memorable accompaniment of harpsichord and finger-snapping.

It was originally produced by Filmways Inc. at General Service Studios in Hollywood, CA. Successor company MGM Television (via The Program Exchange for broadcast syndication, 20th Century Fox Television for home video/DVD) owns the rights to the show. At one point, distribution rights were licensed to Worldvision Enterprises.

This show can be seen on TV Land. It is often compared to its working-class rival, The Munsters, which ran for the same two seasons and achieved somewhat higher Nielsen ratings.
