Today would be the 100th birthday of Charles Addams, best well known for his The Addams Family characters.
He was born today, a 100 years ago Westfield, New Jersey and died at the age of 76 on September 29, 1988.
He was a cartoonist who created many of the characters of The Addams Family. That became a couple TV shows, movies, cartoons and even more. I personally remember growing up watching a couple versions of The Addams Family on TV.
Google today featured a special logo to remember his work and contributions to America.
