** [[WordOfGod According to director Barry Sonnenfeld]], in the first film, [[spoiler:Gordon Craven ''wasn't'' supposed to have been Fester all along, [[http://www.vulture.com/2012/04/barry-sonnenfeld--men-in-black-3.html but still an imposter]], though the family would've accepted him as Fester anyway, as, in Sonnenfeld's words, "...family wasn't about blood, it was about love."]] Sonnenfeld described Anjelica Huston as "passionately against" the idea and Raul Julia as "outraged" (though funnily enough Christopher Lloyd himself didn't care either way), and in the end, [[WagTheDirector the cast chose ten-year-old Christina Ricci to convince Sonnenfeld to change the ending]].

*** [[OverlyLongGag ALSO also also]] in ''Addams Family Values'', [[Series/{{Frasier}} David Hyde Pierce]] is the doctor who delivers baby Pubert at the hospital at the beginning, though you can't exactly see him very well due to the surgeon's mask covering his face.
