About Lurch

Lurch isn’t one to talk too much, so there isn’t a whole lot to know about his past. What we do know is that Morticia Addams may or may not have dug him straight out of a cemetery. His father put him together much like Frankenstein was assembled. He appears to be much like Frankenstein with his mannerisms and his appearance, but he is the best manservant the Addams Family could have ever asked for!

Lurch will instantly appear as soon as someone rings his bell, and will take on any task that is asked of him. He is best at is taking care of Pugsley and Wednesday Addams. Wednesday even views Lurch as her best friend. He will make them lunch, put them on the school bus, and even play games with them. He protects the house and family as if it was his own. The Addams Family consider Lurch as another member family too!
