Addams Family Values

Other mistake: Toward the end, Pubert escapes the crib and is crawling away from the camera. It can be easily seen that it's an animated puppet due to the even movements. A second later, you see the live baby, and the movements are nothing like a moment before.

Other mistake: Debbie speaks of her first husband, a heart surgeon. Then he couldn't have been attending to the Pope when he had a cold.

Suggested correction: For someone with a serious heart disease, or recovering from surgery, a cold can be deadly. If he was his appointed physician he would be attending in case the heart can't handle it and he needs emergency surgery.

Trivia: The baby's name, "Pubert," was actually the original intended name for Pugsley when the comic was turned into a sitcom in the 1960's. Comic creator Charles Addams pitched the name, but it was rejected as it sounds like a number of other words including "puberty" and "pubic." (Which were quite taboo at the time.) The name was finally used thirty years later in this movie for the Addams new baby.

Question: Why does the boy scream like a maniac when he spots the Michael Jackson poster on the wall?

Carl Missouri

Answer: If memory serves, it's a poster for Heal the World? I think he probably screams because this song was WAY over-played on radio stations at the time! It certainly was in the UK where I am from so I imagine in America it was over-played so much more.

Chosen answer: Not only is it a reference to Jackson's general scary weirdness, but also his alleged pedophilia (child molestation), causing the boy to react in fear.

Impossible, the first pedophilia accusations were made just a few months before the movie came out.
