Trivia

The scene where Vito Scotti (Mikey) is eating the soup and is asked, "Would you like to visit the Addams House? He likes it... Hey, Mikey!" is a take-off of a Life Cereal television that was a big hit in the 1970s. See more »

Goofs

When the plant captures Lafferty toward the end of the movie, it has just one limb around the villain's neck at first, but then in the next two shots of him gagging on the encircling leafy fronds and Uncle Fester freeing him while irritably scolding the plant ["How many times has Gomez told you NOT TO PLAY WITH STRANGERS?!"], there are two big limbs around the bad guy's neck, as if they're hands/arms that are trying to hug him choke him to death].

Quotes

Mother Frump: [to the relatives in the graveyard] I want to apologize to you all, I almost gave up the old broom and fly recipe. I was wrong, I forgot the old family motto, "Never say die!"
[buried relatives applaud]
Mother Frump: Thank you, well, back to the drawing board.

Favorable, but bittersweet memories.
11 February 1999 | by (Medford, Ma) – See all my reviews

After being off the air for so many years, it was nice to see ANY new Addams Family adventure. Their first (and only) appearance in color, unfortunately helped to show how old many of them had grown. Being shot on video and the low budget special effects (cousin Itt spoke 'garbled' dialog not his usual high speed reverse English) were disappointing, but it is a GREAT watch at Halloween. A moment to look for: In order for Carolyn Jones to be able to march up the staircase for the finale, it was necessary for her tight fitting dress to be slit up the back all the way up to her spine. Watch for John Astin's ear-to-ear grin as he stares at her butt while walking behind her & you'll see that this is a TRUE story!
