When an adorable baby boy is added to the Addams household, Wednesday and Pugsley do not hate him, they just aren't necessarily excited about his existence. OK...yeah, they do hate him. So they plot to get rid of him one way or another. Meanwhile, their parents hire a nanny for him and she charms Fester, but has evil intentions for him. The Addamses must stop her, but how?
Not only is Gary's play "puerile and under-dramatized" (as Wednesday puts it), it's historically inaccurate. The Chippewa are from the Midwest. Pocahontas was a Powhatan, a tribe indigenous to Virginia. Neither she nor the Chippewa would've been present at the first Thanksgiving. Also, by 1621 (the first Thanksgiving), Pocahontas had already married John Rolfe, moved to England, and died. See more »
When Debbie is talking to herself about Fester's wealth, she mispronounces "bullion" as "bouillon." See more »

Come, sorrow; we welcome thee. Let us join in grief, rejoice in despair, and honor the fortunate dead.

When Joel first enters the Harmony Hut to join Wednesday and Pugsley, after Gary takes his book away, he looks around and shrieks in horror to see a poster of Michael Jackson on the far wall. This part has been removed from some TV broadcasts. See more »
It's a pleasant surprise to see sequel live up to the original. All the actors are great, particularly Raul Julia and Christopher Lloyd. Oh, can not forget Anjelica Huston. Sequels rarely live up to their predecessor and that's what makes this movie so special. Filled with humor, Values is highly recommended for all.
