Storyline

Updated-for-the-'90s version of the original Addams Family show. The family remains the same: Gomez, Morticia, Wednesday, Pugsley, Uncle Fester, Granmama, Lurch, Thing, and Cousin Itt. They're still spooky, and they still have a lot of neighbors and other outsiders who show up and get freaked out by the family's macabre shenanigans. Written by <crow_steve@hotmail.com>

Trivia

Morticia references Rome being burned. "Rome wasn't burned in a day". She's right-- it took 6 days and destroyed 70% of the city of Rome when Emperor Nero was playing his fiddle. This isn't the first time the burning of Rome was referenced, in the 1991 Addams Family film, Gomez says to Fester during the Mamushka; "We danced the Mamushka while Nero fiddled." See more »

Goofs

In the opening sequence, there is a closeup of Lurch playing the piano, but his hand moves in the wrong direction (he "plays" a glissando towards the high end, but the music is actually the reverse). See more »

Quotes

Morticia Addams: Oh, Gomez, I love it when you take an irrational stance against overwhelming odds with no hope of success.

It _is_ the same old Thing...
2 November 1998 | by GislefSee all my reviews

Basically, this show is a remake of the original series, with very little of the "updating" that occurred for the two theatrical movies starring Julia, Huston, et al. The humor is very 60's, with only the Wednesday character being written with some of the more "90's" black humor of the movies. There's also a bit more sex, but not much. Generally an effort to cash in on the popularity of the movies, and this cast of no-names gives it its best. You'd probably be better off watching the original series on Nickelodeon, though.
