You all know the theme to "The Addams Family." Sing it with me now: "They're creepy and they're kooky, mysterious and spooky . . . "

OK, quick trivia question for you. What group sang that legendary finger-snapping theme song? I once asked that question of seven TV critics, and none of them knew.

The "group" was Vic Mizzy, the man who composed the memorable little ditty. Mizzy, who died Saturday at 93 at his Bel Air home in California, sang the song himself, then overdubbed his voice three times. It was just the kind of playful touch he was known for during his long career.
