* GoodIsNotNice: The most flagrant example being the camp counselors from ''Values'', Gary and Becky. Not for the way they treat Wednesday and Pugsley (that is, until they force them to watch saccharine movies), but the way they heavily favor the rich, white, blonde kids over the minority campers, even casting the latter group as the "savage" Native Americans in Gary's play. Becky can't even pronounce two of their names, Consuela and Jamal.
** In introducing the play, Gary refers to the two factions as white meat and dark meat.

Not for the way they treat Wednesday and Pugsley (that is, until they force them to watch saccharine movies and they return - apparently - converted to their upbeat philosophy), but the way they heavily favor the rich, white, blonde kids over the minority campers, even casting the latter group as the "savage" Native Americans in Gary's play.

** The Thanksgiving play written by Gary, is filled with blatant racism, with Native Americans constantly being called [[InsistentTerminology savages]] and praising Pilgrim girl for have "skin as white as milk".

* JumpingOutOfACake: Gruesome example from the second film. Gomez tries to have this done at Fester's bachelor party.
-->'''Gomez''': ''[peers into cake]'' ...that poor girl. Lurch, was she in there ''before'' you baked?\\

* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: The summer camp counselors from ''Values''. The campers are assigned roles to a Thanksgiving-like play. All the children chosen picked to be Pilgrims are white, blue eyed, blondes while the Native Americans cast consist exclusively of every camper who does not fit into the WASP ideal favored by the camp including: The Addams children, Asians, African Americans (the camp counselor says she can't even pronounce the black camper's name, Jameel), Indians (no, the kind from India), Jews, and even overweight people. The children playing the Pilgrims also invoke the trope as the girls playing the Pilgrims insert lines calling Native Americans "uncivilized savages," at which their parents in the audience laugh.

* ColdHam: Anjelica Houston as Morticia - she's serene, calm, and the only thing that gets her to alter the pitch of her voice at all is [[HappilyMarried Gomez]]. This does not stop her from being a ''tour de force'' that complements Raul Julia's [[LargeHam significantly more exhuberant performance]] perfectly. Witness in the opening of the sequel, where a simple "''Oui''" from her wrings out enough characterization to show her TooKinkyToTorture, HappilyMarried, and TheStoic all while keeping up with Gomez's frantic attention.
