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.

Fond memories of watching this before Trick or Treating
As stated by others, this is not as well-crafted as the more recent movies, but this was a pilot attempt to revive the original series in 1977.
Nearly all the cast returned, and new young children (Wednesday Junior and Puglsey Junior) were also added. Unlike the sound stage original, this special was shot on video in a real house, with props added, including good ol' Thing.
But, like many other shows that made the black and white to color transformation, the Addams' gallows dark humor seems lost in a bright colorful world of early video tape. Still, hats off to the performance of the original cast especially John Astin, Caroline Jones, Jackie Coogan and Ted Cassidy.
