* CrossesTheLineTwice: After the summer camp has been set alight, Wednesday has advanced on the bound Amanda with the implication she's going to burn her at the stake, and the two gagged counsellors are being roasted over a fire, with the distinct possibility the Loser kids are going to ''eat'' them -- cut to Wednesday being canoed across the lake by Joey, complete with romantic music.

to:

* TheWoobie: Uncle Fester for the reasons listed under TearJerker. Also, in the second film, we can see that the poor guy only wants what [[HappilyMarried his brother and sister-in-law have.]]
** Joel Glicker. Unlike Uncle Fester, Wednesday and Pugsley, he doesn't have anyone looking out for him or even a happy home to go to, as his parents are just as big as the insensitive jerks that everyone else at the camp are. Things start to look up for him once he befriends Wednesday, Pugsley and soon the rest of the Addams, but then there is [[JumpScare that ending...]]

* ChaoticEvil: The whole family, but family- pouring boiling oil on Christmas carolers, fondly watching the kids trip the mailman, embracing Friday the thirteenth -but especially the son and the uncle.

* BrokenBase: The New Addams Family has its fair share of people who like it and people who despise it. It has many detractors because it lacks the famous theme song by Vic Mizzy and many of the episodes are remakes of episodes from the original 1960's show, plus it didn't help that it was made after the widely-panned Addams Family Reunion, which served as a pilot for The New Addams Family. On the other hand, other people enjoy this incarnation ''because'' of how much it borrows from the original show and for still retaining the dark humor that has always been important to the franchise.

* TheScrappy: The Normanmeyers are considered this to some fans of the 90's animated series. Luckily for those fans, they inevitably go through some misfortune in every appearance.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: The whole family was this, which gave rise to all the adaptations.



* CriticalResearchFailure: ''Disney/{{Bambi}}'' and ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'' are Disney productions. But Joel mentions "''But... It's Disney!''" right before ''Theatre/TheSoundOfMusic'', ''Series/TheBradyBunch'' and ''{{Theatre/Annie}}'' start playing. None of which are Creator/{{Disney}} productions.

* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: For some, the Addams being DarkerAndEdgier from the 1960's DomCom (and TruerToTheText of the original comic strip) ends up making them come across as less DarkIsNotEvil and more ObviouslyEvil. While the films clearly ''mean'' to portray the Addams as more honest, friendly, and accepting than the [[{{Hypocrite}} hypocritical]], judgmental {{Stepford Smiler}}s of white suburban America, some feel those same suburbanites have every reason to fear/dislike the Addams since they regularly engage in acts of vandalism, destruction of private and public property (smashing windows with golf balls, stealing stop signs to cause accidents), [[CruellaToAnimals animal abuse]] (burying a cat alive), manslaughter, murder, arson, and [[IAmAHumanitarian cannibalism]] with barely a shrug. While this can be chalked up to the Addams being ObliviouslyEvil, since they themselves enjoy pain/chaos, are virtually unkillable and regularly resurrect/engage with the dead and thus [[BlueAndOrangeMorality might not understand that]] for "normals" death is both easy and final, some viewers find that both groups are pretty unpleasant: ObliviouslyEvil versus AffablyEvil (or FauxAffablyEvil), and thus in some cases it's hard to vote for anyone. The movies stick pretty close to the original Charles Addams cartoons which potray them as AffablyEvil with a [[BadIsGoodAndGoodIsBad very different approach towards good and evil]]. The humor comes from most of their enemies acting nice, while being greedy and ruthless which the Addamses appreciate having the aforementioned worldview.
