Charles Addams: Christmas Caroling at the Addams Family Mansion

In 2005, the Cartoon Bank advertised a limited edition lithographic print of a well-known Charles Addams cartoon depicting Christmas carolers at the Addams Family mansion. The Cartoon Bank does not sell prints of Charles Addams cartoons except by special arrangement. The size of the edition is not stated in this ad. This print comes with documentation and bears an authenticity stamp of the Addams estate. This classic New Yorker cartoon is reenacted at the beginning of Barry Sonnenfeld's 1991 movie "The Addams Family."

Two sizes of the print are currently available from the Tee & Charles Addams Foundation, which calls the print "Boiling Oil."
