Decades to Honor Lisa Loring
The network will remember Lisa Loring in a weekend long tribute starting Saturday.
DECADES remembers actress Lisa Loring with a special extended presentation of 36 back-to-back episodes of The Addams Family celebrating her iconic character, Wednesday Addams. The tribute begins Saturday, February 4 at 12pm ET and continues through Sunday, February 5 at 6:00am ET on DECADES.
The Addams Family aired for two seasons on ABC from September 1964 to April 1966 for a total of 64 episodes. The Addamses are a satirical inversion of the ideal postwar American middle-class nuclear family, a clan who delight in the macabre and seemingly unaware or unconcerned that other people find them bizarre. The series remains one of the most famous 1960s sitcoms that audiences still know and love to this day.
Loring played the young Wednesday Addams, a character who is embedded in American pop culture and gained renewed popularity with the recent Netflix series, Wednesday. Loring’s interpretation of the character was sweet but gloomy, a young girl with a penchant for collecting creepy pets and headless dolls.
Loring also starred in Phyllic Diller’s sitcom The Pruitts of Southhampton, and made appearances in several hit shows including The Girl From U.N.C.L.E., Fantasy Island and Barnaby Jones. She also played Cricket Montgomery in a recurring role on As the World Turns from 1980-1983.
Loring passed away on Saturday at the age of 64.
