Dark is Not Evil

We have always known this at Chez Gamers' Babes. Abby's favorite TV/Comic character is Raven of the Teen Titans after all. So we were looking for something to watch tonight - something harmless enough for Lizzy but not really interesting for her because she has been in disgrace for passive-aggressive pottying (twice today she told Gramma she did not have to go and then went on the floor deliberately). And something we have not watched a gazillion times in the past year. And I came across the old episodes (1964 - older than me!) of The Addams Family on Netflix Instant Play.

Abby loves it. Wednesday Addams is totally Abby's kind of chick, perky goth innocent child as she the character is. Mind you, this is the original series, not the older and snarkier movie version.  Abby is even enjoying the black-and-whiteness of it all (literally, I mean, not figuratively speaking. That's another post.) She has declared it "a favorite", and is snapping along with the theme song.

And I was right; Lizzy dropped off ten minutes in. Thank goodness; she clearly needs the sleep. She was acting more like Chucky than like Wednesday.
