* HollywoodLaw: No competent court system would have allowed a Judge who was the next-door neighbor of the Addams with an obvious history of animosity towards them to preside in a lawsuit involving them. Of course, Gomez Addams, a lawyer who takes crazy pride in ''losing'' his cases, would probably be too dumb to realize that this is a different situation and protest this legal fact.

** Pugsley enters the kitchen holding a STOP sign during breakfast, causing Gomez to wait for the sound of a horrific accident, which is music to his ears. A scene towards the end shows that Pugsley has a huge collection of STOP signs in his room, potentially all from the same intersection.

*** She is more than disheveled, she's ''wearing the same clothes'' as the previous scene (which took place the day before) because she cannot remove the fingertrap.


Added DiffLines:

** Also as Gomez has his BSOD (after [[spoiler: losing the house to Fester]], Gramamama can be seen through the window of the motel holding a club and cooing "Here kitty, kitty!" She pops back in after a few moments to declare that dinner will be ready soon.

** Since the Cossacks didn't emerge until the 14th century at the earliest -- and since it's the Addams family -- probably a bit of unintentional UnreliableNarrator in there. Or Gomez is just trying to list off situations where the dance is appropriate, without any regard to whether they could have temporally occurred.

Alternately, those Cossack cousins were keeping the dance to themselves since long before they became Cossacks.

* MythologyGag: The foot of Wednesday's bed has a painting of an octopus on it, [[https://i.pinimg.com/564x/fe/63/84/fe6384fe0b05c9f5c75385fcaf7652ef.jpg precisely the way Charles Addams always drew it]].

The first film, released in 1991, focused on the family's search for Gomez's missing brother, Fester (Creator/ChristopherLloyd). Fester's return leads to a joyful reunion between the brothers.

** The relationship between the amnesiac Fester and "mother" in the first movie has shades of this.

** Gleefully subverted by Wednesday during the Thanksgiving play to the applause of a grateful nation. She basically leads the minority campers (being forced to play racist Native American stereotypes) in a full-scale assault on the rich white kids, as both symbolic revenge for the real Native Americans, and literal revenge on the kids and counselors who had been dicks to them the entire time.

* AllPartOfTheShow: When Wednesday goes OffTheRails during the Thanksgiving play in ''Addams Family Values'', the audience doesn't get that she's off-script until well after the set is on fire. The fact that they clearly do intend to burn Amanda alive at least gets her parents moving.
