Earlier this year, we ran a post lauding an online series titled Adult Wednesday Addams, which was an episodic short series created by Melissa Hunter. The series followed Wednesday Addams from The Addams Family as a young woman trying to find her way and create her own life in Los Angeles. It was wry, sharp, and incredibly funny, oftentimes creating a scathing commentary on various social issues.
However, bad news has struck as the entire series has been pulled from YouTube after the Tee Charles Addams Foundation, who hold the copyright for the work of American cartoonist Charles Addams, flagged the videos, says New Media Rock Stars.
Hunter states via Facebook:
Obviously, this is very upsetting that the videos aren’t online. Wednesday means so much to me as I know she does to you. Thank you for all of your enthusiasm. Your support every step of the way has meant the world to me.
At this point, the Tee Charles Addams Foundation cannot do anything to change the status of this issue, so sending messages and donations will not remedy the situation. If there is anything that can be done in support of the series, I will let you know. Thank you again for everything!
We can only hope that some kind of a solution can be found.
