*** But the thing is, Gomez wasn't a cad. He was only ''pretending'' to be a cad (I hate that word). And why did Morticia say that she was a fool for "sending [Gomez] out into the cold without a thought to [his] sinuses"? He's an ''Addams''. He probably ''likes'' the cold. And CatchYourDeathOfCold is a myth and even if it wasn't, Gomez plays with ''dynamite''.

* So on ''America's Most Disgusting Unsolved Crimes'' early in ''Addams Family Values'', [[Film/{{Airplane}} Captain Oveur]] says that the Black Widow targets wealthy men, seduces them, marries them, and then kills them on the wedding night for the insurance/inheritance. But then later during her slideshow Debbie makes it pretty clear that she marries for love (or whatever) and stays with it for a couple years before killing her husband when he really pisses her off.

** It's possible after the times she got pissed off and killed her husband, Debbie decided "okay, no one seems to really love me so I'll just marry guys and kill them to take their money." Or something like that. Remember she did try to kill Fester on their wedding night. The ones on the slideshow were the ones she really cared about when she married them.

** The way I see it, Gomez must have overcommited to the role. After all, Gomez is rather passionate on staying in a role. (remember Lurch's mother?) The first thought that came to Morticia's mind was that on some level, Gomez meant what he was saying. She's upset, not angry. And the next day, they manage to make up, with Gomez admitting he's been a cad, and Morticia admitting she's been a fool.

** Gomez is rather skilled in yoga. Getting tied to the chair wouldn't have left him completely immobile, just restrained.

** According to the 60's TV series, Fester is Morticia's uncle. We never see Gomez's father, however. Anyone have an idea on that?


Added DiffLines:

** Fester did get rather sick at one point, but I wouldn't call that a cold. That's as close as you can get, given their ability to shrug off mortal wounds. So yes and no.

** The movie MILDLY explains part 1. He got struck by magical lightning from a book. It never...QUITE faded away. The latter? He's an Addams.

[[folder: Humour]]
In "When You're an Addams", Gomez says that Addamses must have a sense of humour, however when they sing the "Keep your X" lyrics, where X is something the Addamses are known to dislike, one of them is "Keep your laughter". So do Addamses have humour or not? Not to mention that Gomez has laughed a few times in the series.

[[folder: Can Addamses Catch Colds?]]
Okay, this might sound like a weird question, but I once dreamt that the Addams family all got colds and because I'm someone who hates sickness and is a little afraid of it, I didn't like that dream at ''all'', but it got me thinking...''can'' an Addams catch a cold?

** Generally, if people have never tried to do something, never learned how to do something, practiced doing something, or had any remote contact with the thing, they assume they can't do it. Most people, for instance, are pretty certain they can't swim across the Pacific without actually attempting to swim across the Pacific first.

[[folder: I Fail to Understand]]
In "The Day Gomez Failed", Gomez attempts to fail by knitting a sweater when he can't knit. But if he'd never failed before, how does he know he can't knit?

*** 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?
