The Munsters and The Addams Family On Boomerang; Sitcom Stars On Talk Shows (Week of September 26, 2011)

October is right around the corner and that always means Halloween is on the horizon. To countdown, Boomerang, Cartoon Network's 24-hour animated spin-off network, will be airing episodes of the classic '60s sitcoms The Munsters and The Addams Family every weekday starting Monday, Oct. 3, 2011! This will mark the first time a non-animated series has aired on the network. But since they are doing this, they are also going to air the '90s animated series The Addams Family in October! The animated series will air weekdays at 11:30am, while the live-action The Addams Family will air weeknights at 7:30pm. As for The Munsters, Herman and family will air weekdays at 2pm and 7pm. On weekends, there will be a four episode stunt each weekend from 6-8pm. On Saturdays, The Munsters will air, while the '90s animated series The Addams Family will air on Sundays.
There will be a Columbus Day marathon of the animated The Addams Family on Monday, Oct. 10 from 6am-10:30am, followed by The Munsters from 10:30am-5:30pm. And of course on Halloween, there will be a marathon of each series starting with the animated The Addams Family from 6-9am. The Munsters will air from 1-3pm and The Addams Family sitcom will air from 7:30pm-10:30pm. Movies and other series marathons (like Scooby-Doo, Where Are You?) air the rest of the time.
Will these series air past October 31? We will let you know, but as of now it is for the month of October only. So enjoy it while you can! Herman vs. Gomez!
