This happy home time occurs every Friday night at ABC's reverse Joke series, "The Addams Family," where the sweet things In life are pet spiders, poison ivy and a hangman's toose. The head of the house, non conformist Gomez Addams addicted to cigars, doublebreast-ed chalk striped suits and blowing up toy trains walks about with feet wide apart, full of good cheer. He is a happy man and so far has never been seen In a downcast mood, Life Is very good to Gomez. Actor John Astln, formerly seen as a carpenter In the "I'm Dickens-, . . He's Fenwter" scr ies, was the first person cast In the series, derived from Charles Addams' New Yorker cartoons, and he has given a good deal of serious thought to Gomez. "We did a number of tests without makeup," says John. "And some felt I was too straight. There was a suggestion to do odd things with the eyes, but we stopped that." Astln, a talented, serious New York actor, leaning back towards the works of Samuel Beckett, and who once produced Christopher Fry's "A Sleep of Pris oners," written to be performed In a church, plays Gomez in an expansive mood. "You can tell about Gomez from the way he walks," he says. "The legs shoot out.. And when he stands the fect are far apart, like a cigar smoking New York businessman, only Gomez Is a successful nonconformist. This can't simply be a reverse Joke show. We have to affirm our position." So far the series does rely on the reverse Joke and the kids don't seem to mind at all. The cartoon characters on TV are sweet and a big hit among the young viewers whose after school television chatter revolves mostly around "The Ad dams Family" and "The Mun-sters." Both series could be written by the same people In that both emphasize a close family life, sight gags galore and reverse Jokes. Their viewpoints are remarkably similar. Pushing Ihe nonconformist line. Astln says, "We attack objects, not people. We know we're different and we feci others are not as fortuna'e as we are. And when we take out our aggressions, no guilt Is Involved." "The Addams Family" and "The Munsters" take great care to stress a happy home life. "These are good people" Is Implied In every line. Now this wasn't the case in all Addams cartoons. "Many suggested violence," admits Astln, "and it wasn't necessary for Addams to follow up. Cartoons don't have 2 to answer any question, but we do In 26 minutes." Astin was an Addams fan before he joined the cast and en- Joyed the marvelous poetic expressions on the characters while performing some weird deed. "I remember one cartoon where the butler poured hot oil over Christmas trees and he positively beams," says Astin, but we can t do things like that." ' With the role of Gomez, Astin has quickly erased his former Image of the carpenter who played straight man on the "Dick-ens-Fenster" series. There were times when Astin toyed with the Idea of changing his name V Harry Dickens, after belnf stopped by fans who ask wheth er John Dickens or Denstei "I'm John Astin," he would sa,' politely. "Oh, yes, you're Die' Fenster," would be the reply. 'More Opportunity' "People don't know I've done serious things," says Astln with downcast eyes. "In New York I was known as very strong for art for art's sake plays." Now that Astln Is a TV figure living in Southern California, some of his theater associates accuse him of selling out. "I've had more opportunity here," says Astin, whose Fry play ran one performance In New York's Phoenix Theater. "I say art Is where you make it. I Intend to do my little art film and it won't matter where I am." He rolled his eyes, twisted his mouth, threw back his head and there was Gomez, a happy man. mmss L 1 mid lit 3 GOMEZ ADDAMS (JOHN ASTIN) , MOVING HAND ... from ABC's hot Friday night show Thief's Money To Go In Bank JOHANNESBURG.

Ironically, It could well ho that a dcleat for the Lo Angeles San Francisco pay TV firm of Subscription Television Inc. t.STVi, which Is having a tough time staying alive anyway, might lor the Hist time establish the oieiation as a sympathetic, martyred party In the public mind. It seems clear that although many writers and other persons have properly pointed out that movie exhibitor forces are trying to deny STV the rights of free enterprise, by voting It out of existence, these forces have shrewdly convinced many voters that they are the underdogs. One tactic has been to drape themselves In the false and misleading term of "frocTV commercial video. But If the vote bans pavTV, It will first of all enable STV to get out of this costly and currently losing battle, not by a surrender to business failure, but by the edict of Ihe ballot, which does not necessarily reflect on company efficiency. Secondly, If STV carries out Its iiiU'i.rieil p an In use of a vote loss, the entire1 matter will be carried to thp courts, where the firm will surely press the argument widely and publicly that It Is against the Best American tradition to deny a legitimate business operation tha principle of free enterprise.
