Basically an updated-for-the-90's 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

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
Gomez, I'm leaving this house and I'm taking the children with me!
Take the children! Take the neighbor's children! Take Mama!
She's your Mama.
Fine, we'll share custody. But I get Lurch.
