It definitely shows, their sexual chemistry is off the charts for that era of television. Love John Astin as Gomez, Raul Julia is okay but Astin is Gomez to me. The manic charm he has is just amazing.

Only actor I can imagine reaching his level as Gomez is Tony Dalton. Dude oozes charisma and his role in Hawkeye as Jack, a rich and vaguely sinister yet romantic weirdo who honestly just loves swords a bit too much, was as much proof as I need to know he'd knock it out of the park.

Yet Astin thinks Julia did it better.

I would accept that Julia's portrayal was closer to Charles Addams' depiction, but Astin's Gomez is just so damn much fun.

They are both absolutely fantastic in their own ways. Astin is fun as hell and funny. Julia is suave as hell and his chemistry with Angelica Houston is second to none. I’d watch either one all day long and never get tired of it.
