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.
Trivia: A third film in the series was planned after the previous film became a huge hit with audiences. Unfortunately, this sequel only managed to pull in about half of the original's box-office in domestic markets, and shortly after release co-star Raul Julia became seriously ill and passed away after suffering from a stroke. As a result of these two developments, the third film was cancelled and instead, children's media company Saban later "rebooted" the series with the film "The Addams Family Reunion" and a television series entitled "The New Addams Family." Though "Addams Family Reunion" is often cited as the "third" film in the series, it actually has no connection to the plot of the prior films and was produced and distributed by a different studio.
