Name origin[ edit ] In the Charles Addams cartoons, Gomez—as with all of the members of the family—had no given name. Addams left the final choice up to portrayer John Astinwho chose Gomez.

He nevertheless studied law voted "Most Likely Never to Pass the Bar" and is quite proud his law class voted him "Least Likely to Succeed"; and although he rarely practices, he takes an absurd delight in losing cases, boasting of having put many criminals behind bars while acting as their defense attorney; this is somewhat contradicted in the episode "The Addams Family Goes to Court," where it is noted that while Gomez has never won a case, he has never lost one either.
Gomez has offered contradictory views on work; in one episode, he claims that, although his family was wealthy even in his childhood, he nonetheless performed odd jobs and "scrimped and saved [his] kopeks," which he considered character building.
