** This, oddly, is what led to the movies getting made - the minds behind it were riding in a car [[http://mentalfloss.com/article/59800/13-creepy-kooky-facts-about-addams-family and someone started whistling the theme song]].

* JerkSue: Wednesday can come off as one to some people. While her parents and uncle are, tastes aside, genuinely pleasant, civil people, she hates everything and everyone but her family but always comes out on top.

* {{Flanderization}}: Before Fester gets his memory back at the end of the first film, he's a street-smart tough guy. But in ''Values'' he's regressed into a childlike oddball with NoSocialSkills. Although the thing is his personality in the second film is probably closer to the original character from the TV series and comic strip, at the beginning of the first film he doesn't know he's Fester and is effectively a different person, as he spends more time with the family he gradually starts to feel more like an Addams. But if you compare the two films it is slightly odd how much he regresses in the sequel.

And lets face it even as an amnesiac he was a PsychopathicManchild just more conniving thanks to Craven's influence. But if you compare the two films it is slightly odd how much he regresses in the sequel.

* 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 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), animal abuse (burying a cat alive), manslaughter, murder, arson, and 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.
