The Addams Family’s Living Room Was Actually Pink!

Almost everybody knows The Addams Family – their creepy black and white antics are a TV classic. Which makes these pictures all the more surprising, then – they show us that the Addams family’s house, or the living room to be exact, was covered in pink, red, turquoise, and other decidedly non-Addams-family-ish colors.

There can be various reasons behind this striking contrast. Because the Addams Family was filmed in black and white, the colors of the items used for the movie set simply didn’t matter – if they found an object that looked just right for the set but was colored baby blue, they could still use it. Another reason was the way that black-and-white film registers certain colors when shooting. In black-and-white filming, the Addams family cast often had to wear strange shades of lipstick (like brown or green) to get the right shades to appear on black-and-white film. As such, many of the color choices on this strangely colorful Addams family set were probably deliberate – they all came together to create the dark and quirky world that so many of us know and love.

The Addams Family characters, consisting of Gomez, Morticia Addams, Uncle Fester, Lurch, Cousin It, Wednesday, Pugsley and Thing, began as a set of characters created by cartoon artist Charles Addams. Their popularity also saw them adapted for TV, film and other media.
