chico_valdez: Well folks, that's it I'm afraid. I checked up on the cache and sadly, someone has stolen the very first stage which of course makes it unworkable. Since we are not local anymore, we really can't keep up the expense of keeping this one going. We tried to keep it for as long as we could. All remaining evidence of Lurch has been removed.

Anyway, thanks very much to everyone who visited and/or favourited this one and for voting for us in last year's Blitz. This was our most funnest cache ever.

Geocache Description:

Another cache in our ongoing salute to 1960s Television Programs

The Addams Family
"You Rang?"

Family Photo

The Addams Family originally appeared as a series of single panel cartoons in 1938 by cartoonist Charles Addams. To those of us that remember, we were exposed to the Addams family first in 1964 when Gomez, Morticia, Pugsley, Wednesday, Uncle Fester, Grandmama, Lurch, Thing & Cousin Itt made their first appearances on our television screens.

Uncle Fester   Itt

There was always something going on in the Addams household. From the amorous advances of Gomez towards Morticia, to Uncle Fester's unnatural ability to light a bulb placed in his mouth, the fun simply never ended. The disembodied hand called "Thing" provided just that extral level of creepiness.

Perhaps the most ominous character on the show was the Butler, Lurch, who never said much on the show other than his catch phrase "You Rang". Your mission is to find the Addams Family cache marking the original site of their mansion.



Remember, to find the mansion, you must summon Lurch to answer your call, are you up for the challenge??

They're creepy and they're kooky
Mysterious and spooky
They're all together ooky

The Addams Family

Their house is a museum
When people come to see 'em
They really are a scree-am
The Addams Family


So get a witches shawl on
A broomstick you can crawl on
We're gonna pay a call on
The Addams Family
