Creepy
1. having or causing a creeping sensation of the skin, as from horror or fear: a creepy ghost story.
2. that creeps: a creepy insect.
3. Slang. of,

Um, but the Adams Family theme song clearly states:

"They’re creepy and they’re kooky, mysterious and spooky…"

The Addams Family theme song is also about 50 years old. Please note my comment about modern usage.

You’re splitting hairs. They are most certainly interchangeable words.

creep·y (ˈkrēpē/ ) adjective

causing an unpleasant feeling of fear or unease.

"the creepy feelings one often gets in a strange house"

synonyms:frightening, eerie, disturbing, sinister, weird, hair-raising, menacing,threatening, eldritch; 

informal spooky, scary, freaky

"the old apple trees look creepy in the dim moonlight

=====********=====

spook·y (ˈspo͞okē/ ) adjective

1. sinister or ghostly in a way that causes fear and unease.

"I bet this place is really spooky late at night"

synonyms:eerie, sinister, ghostly, uncanny, weird, unearthly, mysterious; More

2. NORTH AMERICAN

(of a person or animal) easily frightened; nervous.

Obviously I disagree, or I wouldn’t have made the post. The words as I (and neatly everyone I’ve talked to) understand them have extremely different connotations.

If you look up “red” in a thesaurus, you’ll get back words like crimson, scarlet, and maroon, because they’re similar colors. But similar is not identical. They’re different colors, and if you tell me your shirt is scarlet what comes to mind is different than what I’d picture if you told me your shirt is maroon.

If you tell me you met someone creepy that calls to mind a very different sort of person than if you described someone as spooky. It’s the difference between the guy who leers at women his daughter’s age and the guy who wears black eyeliner and listens to the Cure. It’s The IT Crowd’s sexual-harassment-suit-waiting-to-happen boss, Reynholm, and the harmless goth-who-lives-in-the-server-room, Richmond.

You say I’m splitting hairs, but I say you’re seriously over simplifying.

 So in other words, some things are spooky, but not creepy; some things are creepy, but not spooky; and some things are both creepy and spooky?

  • The moms at my local Community Center are a weird bunch. As one of the few Dads there with their kid I tend to notice some of the stranger occurances.
  • Today there was a Mom taking her 3-4 year old son into one of the family shower rooms while I was picking up my gym bag from the lockers. They lock themselves into the family shower room and I hear this exchange:
  • (Shower turns on)
  • Boy: "Butt on the Thigh. Butt on the Thigh. Butt on the Thigh. Butt on the Thigh. (Laughing)"
  • Mom: (indiscernible scolding)
  • Boy: (bolder) "Butt on the Thigh! Butt on the Thigh! Butt on the Thigh! Butt on the Thigh!"
  • Mom: (much louder, clearer, scolding)
  • Boy: (defiantly) "BUTT ON THE THIGH! BUTT ON THE THIGH! BUTT ON THE THIGH! BUTT ON THE...."
  • Mom: (yelling loudly)
  • Boy: (sobbing). "B-b-buuuuuutttt onnn the thighhhhhhh. Bu Buh B-b-buuuuuutttt onnn the thighhhhhhhooohoooohoooooo..."
