Everyone that I know who knows who The Addams family is knows them from the 1960s TV show or the 90s movies. A few people from this game. But basically nobody that I know knew that The Addams Family was a comic. For real, do you know anybody who knew that? I sure didn’t.
Neither did this week’s guest Michael Bivens from Silent Journeys. But he very much did know about the old TV show. I’m really glad I had someone for this episode that grew up with the show a lot more than I did.
Learn such things as:
- The fun non continuity of early television
- Between this and The Munsters, who ripped off who?
- How many games let you downgrade a weapon?
- And so much more!
You can find the guest at MS Bivens.com (which includes his wonderful Silent journeys podcast) and and on Twitter @MSBivens_.

Music by Best Day, who also didn’t know this was a comic and that makes me feel a lot better.
