The slogan of the film is "weird is relative"... what's the double meaning of "relative"?










































Gomez Addams - the head of the household, as long as its okay with Morticia. Independently wealthy allowing him to spend his time enjoying all sorts of activities with his family. Loves sword fighting, blowing up his trains, and all forms of competition. 

Morticia Addams - Gomez' beautiful wife. Especially enjoys any sort of activity with Gomez, and almost always beats him at whatever they do. Seems to have a real knack for some things - such as interior decorating, painting, and playwriting

Wednesday Addams - 12 year old daughter of Gomez and Morticia. Respects her parents and follows their example very closely. She resembles Morticia when Morticia was young. She is described to the police as: "Wears her hair in long dark braids, has the most innocent face, and likes to carry a scalpel"  Enjoys being with her brother and especially enjoys attempts to torture him and hear him scream.

Pugsley Addams - younger 9-year old brother of Wednesday. More than anyone else in the family, Pugsley sometimes acts almost normal - to the dismay of the family who get very worried about him. His famous scream is a staple of the show. Pugsley loves animals of all types. He is very good at checkers.


Fester Addams - is Gomez' unmarried younger brother. Loves bombs, explosives, grenades, and explosions in general.

Eudora Addams - Gomez and Fester's Mama. She's a witch with a licence from the Department of Witchcraft and is also a doctor (witch doctor?). Her spells are a bit rusty and often don't work. But she tries really hard and cooks up great meals for the family. Wednesday and Pugsley call her "Grandmama". Eudora loves soap operas.

Lurch - the devoted family butler. The 8 foot tall serious deep-voiced Lurch puts the family ahead of himself and is often very insecure. Does all the household chores except for the cooking. He is color blind. Lurch enjoys and is very good at Poker.

Thing - Thing T. Thing - a disembodied hand that lives with the family and helps around the house. Talks through sign language and drinks through his fingers. He has his own little room, complete with a little bed
