Morticia or Lilly as Most Awesome Queen Of The Darkside? There was nothing wrong with Lilly but, I think most any guy of my generation would choose Morticia plus she was born in Amarillo and there's just something about Texas women right? Also, she didn't need all the make up to come across a little creepy but, still beautiful.

Here's what Charles Addams the creator of The Addams Family had to say about Morticia:

The real head of the family…low-voiced, incisive and subtle, smiles are rare…ruined beauty…contemptuous and original and with fierce family loyalty…even in disposition, muted, witty, sometimes deadly…given to low-keyed rhapsodies about her garden of deadly nightshade, henbane and dwarf’s hair…

She once told her sister she wanted her epitaph to be: "She gave joy to the world", well said and well played dear lady. Carolyn Jones was taken from us too soon in 1983 at age 53.

Funny I'd never pondered that question before.

If you're talking the characters, I'd agree that Morticia is the the better character. But on the hotness of the respective actresses, the nod would have to go to YDC for sure.

In getting up to speed for this comment, I learned that Carolyn Jones was married from 1953-1964 to Aaron Spelling.
