who was the actress who played Morticia's first husband in real life?

OK, spooks, I'm a little confused with this one, but I'm going to make a wild guess and say Aaron Spelling since he was Carolyn Jones' (Morticia) first husband . . . if I'm incorrect, let me know!

This 1974 TV series featured a reporter for Chicago's Independent News Service who was a trouble magnet for situations involving the supernatural. Even though he had run-ns with vampires, werewolves, zombies and all manner of legendary creatures, at the end of each episode he always failed to convince his skeptical editor that the stories weren't products of his own overworked imagination.

What was the name of the series?

What was the the name of Morticias favorite pet?

I'm glad you clarified that. I was starting to doubt my sanity for a moment . . . or two :whee:

What was the the name of Morticias favorite pet?

I seem to recall that Cleopatra, the African Strangler plant, was Morticia's favorite. Cleo was *very* affectionate and loved to snack on zebra burgers and yak meatballs.

Morticia had two pet vultures as a child. What were their names?

There is nothing wrong with your television set. Do not attempt to adjust the picture. We are controlling the transmission. If we wish to make it louder, we will bring up the volume. If we wish to make it softer, we will tune it to a whisper. We will control the horizontal. We will control the vertical. We can roll the image; make it flutter. We can change the focus to a soft blur or sharpen it to crystal clarity. For the next hour, sit quietly and we will control all that you see and hear. We repeat: there is nothing wrong with your television set. You are about to participate in a great adventure. You are about to experience the awe and mystery which reaches from the inner mind to the Outer Limits.

The name of the episode was "The Sixth Finger."

What was the Addams Family credo? You get extra points for both the Latin and English versions :lol:

Probably from some of my relatives :lol: But seriously, his main inspiration was the characters from the many cartoons he draw for the New Yorker magazine. None of them even had names until Addams was approached about the TV series.

If that's an exceptable answer, I'll continue:

This single season TV series from 1971 james Garner played a motorcyle-riding sheriff in the latter days of the old West, who was actually killed so he could be replaced the next season by his more heroic identical twin brother. What was the name of the series?

That's gotta be The Feminist And The Fuzz

In this spinoff tv show, the title character and his wife Bernice moved out of their New York apartment and into a rundown house, in order to become foster parents to five P.I.N.S.--the social workers' term for "Persons in Need of Supervision."
