5.0 von 5 Sternen THE book to have on a TV show! 12. Mai 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
You'll be blown away at how author Cox has assembled so much information, trivia, interviews, and more on "The Addams Family" legacy. The color section in the center of the book is like eye-candy. You'll see this material no where else, I'm sure. I've collected Chas. Addams and "Addams Family" for years and this is the best book. The added bonus about "The Munsters" was interesting, as was the wonderful Foreword by John Astin--my favorite Gomez. Inside are more than 200 pictures which explore the entire Addams lineage plus behind-the-scenes photos which will blow you away. THE book to have on a TV show, without a doubt.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The definitive "Addams Family" reference book 7. Dezember 1998
Format:Taschenbuch
Steve Cox's 1991 tome "The Addams Chronicles" is easily the most comprehensive book ever issued concerning the show, having already gone through two printings. Some seven years after the original's debut, Cox has re-visited the manuscript and updated it, with incredible results.
In an age where reference books are published in such huge numbers, it is wonderful to see a publication that genuinely earns its place on a fan's bookshelf. This is not a feeble attempt to justify a reprint, nor is it a half-hearted revision. Instead, it manages to remain true to the original, whilst also appearing fresh and new. The photographs alone will be enough to stun most fans ("The Addams Family" filmed on a closed set, and photographs have always been limited, with colour shots nearly non-existent). From the previously unpublished colour shots adorning the cover, to the jaw-dropping colour insert, the clarity and beauty of these photographs represents an unprecedented collection, and exceeded all of my expectations. The black and white shots disappoint no less, offering an incredible array of previously unpublished shots, including an ultra-rare picture of creator Charles Addams visiting the set, along with numerous other treasures.
Aided by Cox's easy-going, informative prose (a couple of niggling typos aside), this book is a joy from cover-to-cover, and triumphantly re-asserts "The Addams Chronicles" reputation as the primary text concerning the show.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Info about the classic TV show. 9. November 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
Stephen cox does a great job bringing information about the cast and crew of the original Addams Family show which aired in 1964. Being a second edition howver, not much new information was added. The Movies and new show are mentioned but not gone into in detail. In addition, some glaring misspellings and poor editing show a lack of followup by the publisher. This is unfortunate due to the fact that this book should be owned by ALL Addams Family fan-atics. Lets make sure the 3rd edition gives us more on current history however

4.0 von 5 Sternen Ooky Is Right 29. Juni 2004
Von doomsdayer520 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Will we ever again see a TV show as full of nonconformity, deep dark humor, and head-scratching eccentricity as the Addams Family? I doubt it. This book is a treasure trove of trivia and collector's info for Addams geeks worldwide. Stephen Cox is as knowledgeable an enthusiast as you could hope for, though his writing could use some work. That's usually not a problem in a fun trivia book like this, though when it comes to cultural analysis he does get in over his head sometimes. Examples are his weak attempts to compare the show to the French playwright Moliere, or to explain the deep cultural significance of Gomez's love for cigars. But otherwise, you'll learn some great Addams TV tidbits here, like who played Thing (Ted Cassidy, better known for playing Lurch), and who did Cousin Itt's voice (soundman Tony Magro). You also may not have known that the pig who played Pugsley's frighteningly alive piggy bank also played Arnold on Green Acres. The only real problem with this book is the very quick and rather uninformative biographies of the stars. With the exception of Jackie Coogan (Uncle Fester), most of the actors get bios that are only two or three pages long. But in the end, I'm especially happy to learn that I'm not the only one who thinks that Carolyn Jones as Morticia was quite sexy, rather than creepy. [~doomsdayer520~]

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Chronicles chronicled 28. Juli 2012
Von Morris Sullivan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
With several different TV books under his belt, Stephen Cox has done it again with The Addams Chronicles. In this revised and expanded 2nd edition, with a foreword by John Astin, Cox has delved into the background of the Addams Family starting with its origin: Charles Addams, the creator of The Addams Family. Beginning the book with several photos of Charles Addams and examples of his comic strip panels, Cox covers The Family roots quite nicely as he examines the life of their author.

Moving on to the conception and design of the television program, Cox reveals details of the process of adapting a simple comic strip to a thirty-minute situation comedy. The producers had to come up with quite a bit of material since even the central characters of the comic strip were never given names! Once Charles Addams had submitted names for the characters, that was about all of the input he had, or apparently even wanted. Other chapters explain subjects such as the set decoration which, as you may imagine, was an undertaking in itself; the actual house in Los Angeles - on Adams Boulevard no less - that stood in for The Family manse after a bit of optical altering to give it the proper gothic appearance; lists such as the creepy meals served or mentioned during the run of the series, or some of the French words and phrases Morticia used to fire the passions of her husband.

Even character development is expounded upon such as giving Gomez the inclination for cigar-smoking. All of the main actors are given their own chapters with ample photos of the actors and their characters. Many behind-the-scenes photos are included throughout the book reflecting the research for which Stephen Cox is known. Have you ever seen cousin Itt's face, usually covered by all that hair? You will in the chapter showcasing the actor who portrayed Itt, Felix Silla, who went on to play the little robot "Twiki" in the TV show Buck Rogers In The 25th Century.

Musical composer, Vic Mizzy, gets his own chapter. The man who put together the Green Acres theme and came up with the eeriest organ music ever for the feature film "The Ghost And Mr. Chicken", was tapped to provide the whimsical theme music for the Family Addams, which has become one of the most recognizable tunes in TV sitcom history. In the middle of the book is included a color photo section, giving an additional perspective to what was only revealed in black & white on the tube.

Other interesting extras are; merchandise from the show with the ever-present supplemental photos, a section with comparisons to The Munsters TV program that are graciously embraced along with accompanying photos from their show, the two Addams Family animated series as well as the two Addams' feature films are not forgotten. Finally, the essential episode guide is presented, along with guest cast listings for each installment of the series, all of the rich, expected components of a Stephen Cox tome. Another fine job on his part.
