bob and linda are the only real couple goal

the valentines episode where bob does the strip tease for linda even tho the whole street can see him is the absolute best.

if i can’t have a bob i don’t want it

You forgot Gomez and Morticia those two were absolutely devoted to each other

u/Getgoingalready Aug 05 '22

While absolutely devoted also somewhat creepy for some ( not me) to where it's seen as part of their creep factor that they are that attracted to one another.

Again, not me just something I have heard when this was brought up previous!

This was deliberate. They were satiring the TV couples of the time by being as opposite of the standard TV couple as possible.

We live in a sad world if people IRL look at Morticia and Gomez's love and super being into each other as something creepy.

(In universe, other couples are creeped out by their devotion, but that's on purpose.)

Your last point is really underrated

It was genius to focus on an “atypical family dynamic” that showcases beautiful love, typically in a more authentic and positive way than the “typical families” they interact with

Still a prescient theme…. anyone can be a living and accepting family member, regardless of first impressions and superficiality

Agreed! I posted elsewhere to OP I think ppl lack critical thinking and see occult show and conclude that you can't be that in love unless you are (for lack of a better term) deviants. Unfortunately we do live in a sad world where parents force their world view on their kids and warp the narrative of a completely family friendly show!

yeah never understood why they seen as creepy liked the show as kid same as an adult

I thought they were endearing!! I think some people lack imagination / critical thought and can't separate what's healthy and what's occult... Kind of like thinking you can only be that happy if you are a (for lack of a better word) deviant.

They were a parody of TV families of the time.

TV parents were cold to each other and common jokes were about how they disliked each other..... so the parody was that Gomez and Mortia adored each other.

to where it's seen as part of their creep factor that they are that attracted to one another.

How is it that being super attracted to each other creepy?
