*** She also killed her parents before that. I think the idea is that nobody can live up to her insane demands, so after repeated disappointment she just starts killing them off to begin with.

** Fester was also gone for 25 years, during which time he had amnesia and was living as "Gordon". He got his memories back at the end of the first film, but note that both Gordon and Fester have ManChild tendencies; it's possible that due to his unique situation, he never really "matured". Gomez has become a rather suave and capable adult; Fester basically stayed mentally as an adolescent, and isn't as capable of handling an adult relationship.

** In truth, whether or not people ''liked'' ''Reunion'' wasn't what mattered. The point the producers were trying to get across was that the big-budgeted look of the Paramount movies could reproduced for the small screen. ''Reunion''... did that, I guess, to a sufficient enough extent for the go-ahead on ''The New Addams Family'' to be given. As far as the difference in reception goes, ''The New Addams Family'' simply tried to be more like the original 1960s series, which did -- and still does -- get a fair bit of praise. ''Reunion'', however, just suffered from bad writing, horrible jokes, and an overall misguided attempt to combine the madcap, cheesy '60s-type humor of the original series with the more sophisticated, laid-back tone of the Paramount movies.

*** It was thing Thing and his cousin, Another.



** Well, Thing is a bit of a mystery. He got a crush on another living hand named "Lady Fingers" in one episode, got sad in "Uncle Fester's Illness", and got angry in "Mother Lurch Visits", so he clearly has emotions. It is unknown where they come from, though. And we also see a picture of his parents, who are just two hands holding hands and it's unknown how they "made" him or what "species" he is. And again, he can clearly see (and hear), but it is not revealed how. Not sure if this raises questions or answers or a bit of both.



* In the original movie, when Wednesday [[spoiler:learns someone is posing as Fester,]] she runs off. What does she do with this important, vital information? Bring it to one of her parents? No. Why does she run off and fall asleep in a small mausoleum?

[[folder: Moody Morticia]]
Isn't Morticia a little bit OutOfCharacter in "Cousin Itt and the Vocational Counselor"? She and Gomez were only pretending to fight but then she thought he was serious and didn't accept his apology. Even worse was when she wouldn't let him go to bed and he had to sleep on the couch. She even ''threw'' things at him. Isn't that a touch OOC?

** Well, if blood was thinner than water, when you cut someone it would all just come gushing out way too fast, you wouldn't have time to enjoy it. Plus it would probably throw off the consistency of various cooking.

** Two things to remember: first, women (in general) want different things at different ages. Fester's supposed success with women was mostly when he was a teenager or his young twenties, apparently. At that point his immaturity probably seemed "adorable" and "boyish", and that combined with his wealth and apparent eccentricity would have been very attractive... but not so much when he's a middle-aged man. Second, Fester is obviously socially awkward and rather oblivious, even by Addams standards... he could have been absolutely dripping with women throwing themselves and not even noticed it, but obviously Gomez would have.
