Photographer Richard Fish's widow donates work for Oviatt Library exhibition

Rare Color Photos of the Addams Family TV Sets

The Addams Family set, photographed by Richard Fish

One of the most popular displays in the exhibit is of the Addams Family set.

I have seen quite a few students looking up at all the photographs and especially at the Addams Family photos, everybody remembers that show, said Marianne Afifi, associate dean at the Oviatt Library.

 It has images of the different sets and characters from the black-and-white TV show.  This assignment for TV Guide magazine allowed the public to see the show in color for the first time.

Excerpted  from the Daily Sundial by Marina D. Sandoval, January 27th, 2011

The Richard Fish exhibit was scheduled to run from Nov. 1, 2010 through January 30th, 2011

Thanks to Robert Stone

Vic Mizzy, composer of the Addams Family Theme passes at age 93.
October 20, 2009.

You may not know Vic Mizzy's name, but you know his works. Vic Mizzy wrote many of the iconic TV themes of the 1960s and 70's.. Perhaps his most memorable theme song is The Addams Family theme, he also wrote the theme for Green Acres, starring Eddie Albert and Eva Gabor.  Vic Mizzy also scored many of Don Knott's movies. AddamsFamily.Com sends our condolences to the Mizzy family and friends.

Read his obituary from the LA Times:
