* TemptingFate: In ''Values'' Joel has the horrible idea to tell Wednesday she wouldn't be able to scare her (theoretical) future husband to death. Guess what happens a few moments later?

** ChristopherLloyd as Fester. Any scene with him and Gomez is HamToHamCombat at its finest.

A third movie starring the Family, '''''Addams Family Reunion''''', was released direct-to-video in 1998 with an (almost) all-new cast. Gomez learns his visiting grandparents are suffering from "Waltzheimer's Disease," a SoapOperaDisease that makes one "normal," and as a result tries to organize a family reunion to find a cure. Unfortunately, the company in charge of arranging it misspells the family name "Adams." HilarityEnsues. Serving as a PilotMovie for the then-upcoming ''The New Addams Family'' series , it is not related to the prior two films.

* {{Room 101}}: Played for laughs in the second movie. The camp counselors send Joel, Wednesday, and Pugsley to an isolated cabin apparently used for just this purpose. They're made to endure horrors like Film/TheSoundOfMusic, TheBradyBunch, {{Annie}}, and various Disney movies.
