    To whoever owns the rights, any chance that we will see the old Addams Family TV show on DVD (season-by-season format would be the best)

    The original ADDAMS FAMILY (1964-66) is part of the Spelling Entertainment/World Vision library that was acquired awhile back by Paramount/Viacom. It may be temporarily in the hands of Artisan, or it may be completely in the hands of Paramount now, I'm not sure which. In either case, I too would like to see season sets of the series on Region 1 DVD (that would equal exactly two sets, an easily-to-accomplish goal, I'd think).
    The original FUGITIVE (1963-67, starring David Janssen as "Dr. Richard Kimble") and THE WILD WILD WEST (1965-69) also fall into the same rights area (Paramount/Viacom -- possibly Artisan) as ADDAMS FAMILY, and I'd like to see those on DVD someday soon, too.
    Perhaps someone here more knowledgeable than I on such things could give the final word on whether we should be asking Artisan for these, or Paramount.
