While being grappled by one of the plant's two forward-facing "arms", Parley Baer, the actor for Lafferty's character, can clearly be seen surreptitiously reaching his leather-gloved left hand over toward the plant's other, incorrectly-stationary "arm", as a hasty reminder to the film/animation crew that this other "arm" of the plant is supposed to be curling in on him, also.

This low-budget, color video followup to the 1960s Addams Family series was a hardcore stinker. The original series, which in my opinion was never as clever as the original Charles Addams cartoons which inspired it, nevertheless had a certain charm and atmosphere that made a big impact on me as a kid. This special had none of that, and was little more than a chance to point the camera at the same group of actors (or at least the surviving ones). I mean, it ends with the family singing a Halloween carol! How lame is that? I had the good fortune to meet Charles Addams shortly before he died in 1988. While he was politely dismissive of the original series (he called it a kids' show, but not a bad one), he mentioned the reunion show as being singularly terrible. I agree.
