Wednesday Addams Promoting Decorators Walk

Cartoons depicting the Addams Family were banned from The New Yorker magazine with the advent of the commercial television series. Charles Addams was still free to use his most famous creations in advertising. Here Wednesday Addams poses with a doll house for a promotion of Decorators Walk that appeared in Interior Design magazine in February 1983. The original artwork was sold at Heritage in February 2010.
