A secondary theme was tolerance -- as strange as they are, the Addamses are the ''heroes'', and the viewer is encouraged to understand, empathize and identify with them regardless of their macabre ways. Once the Addamses are familiar, delight comes from anticipating the reaction of the next unsuspecting [[{{Muggles}} mundane]] to cross their path. The show was so exquisitely crafted that this appeal to tolerance was never [[{{Anvilicious}} blatant]], save for one memorable episode where a ''RebelWithoutACause''-style biker crashes into the Addams home; he is so astounded by and grateful for their casual acceptance of his unconventional ways that he holds them up as an example of a true family to his rigid, unyielding father.

* LighterAndSofter: Many of the darker gags in the Addams cartoons depict family members as explicitly evil and murderous, especially the bald character named in the TV series as "Fester". The TV series, however, depicts them as kindly, artistic bohemians who are undeservedly distrusted by their uptight suburban neighbours because of their countercultural lifestyle.

* LittleOrphanAnnie
-->'''Uncle Fester''': Hey, did you ever notice, LittleOrphanAnnie doesn't have any eyeballs?
-->'''Morticia''': That's part of her charm.



* ShoutOut: In one episode Morticia and Gomez try to think of a job for moptop Cousin Itt. Gomez says "I know! Music/TheBeatles! ... Nah, he'd be too much for them."

* ''The New Addams Family'' on Fox Family, a 1998-1999 {{revival}}. Mostly "new" only in terms of title, cast and theme music - many of its episodes were [[RecycledScript recycled]] versions of scripts from the original series. That said, it was well-received, and featured recurring appearances by original Gomez John Astin as Grandpa Addams.
