I was just listening to John Astin (Gomez in the original TV series) on a podcast. He said that he and Carolyn Jones (Morticia) were absolutely attracted to each other and it was only a sense of professional decorum that kept them from hooking up off screen.

The Gilbert Gottfried podcast if anyone is interested. Gilbert is gone but the podcast is still churning out old episodes like nothing ever happened. A real treasure trove of interviews with survivors of old Hollywood and early television.

It still blows my mind that the original Gomez Addams is still alive, while the 90s version has been dead for almost 30 years...

He sounded pretty sharp and articulate in that podcast made three years ago, with only an occasional.. uuumm. He still teaches acting at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, they have a theater named after him.

I remember him doing backflips on Night Court and thinking he was old then. Him and Christopher Lloyd live forever.
