Although the first Addams Family TV series only ran for two seasons in the 1960s, our gloomy friends at 0001 Cemetery Lane left an indelible mark on our hearts. They later became ’90s icons after Raúl Juliá, Anjelica Huston, Christopher Lloyd, and Christina Ricci donned their goth best to play (respectively) Gomez, Morticia, Uncle Fester, and Wednesday Addams.
LEGO fan Hugh Scandrett hopes the toy company will help him pay homage to the family in all-black everything by approving his nearly 3,000-piece recreation of the creepy, Second Empire-style mansion the family lived in on the series. If he gets enough signatures, it could become a reality. Another version of Scandrett’s creation floated around in 2016, but it had 7,000 parts (LEGO’s limit is 3,000). According to Dangerous Minds and Scandrett’s pitch page, this trimmed-down version includes:
-3-floor Mansion, each floor is a removable segment, like standard LEGO modular construction -The Mansion measures 23” (57cm) high, 10” (25cm) wide and 15” (38cm) deep -A full glass greenhouse -Includes 8 minifigs: Morticia, Gomez, Wednesday, Pugsley, Uncle Fester, Grandmama, Cousin It and Lurch -The build includes 2,975 original LEGO pieces, no modifications
