The Addams Family

Continuity mistake: The chutes that Wednesday and Pugsley use changes positions when Fester chases Wednesday.

Continuity mistake: During the play, when Pugsley slices Wednesdays throat, there is blood on the front of her shirt. When she turns to face the audience, the front of her shirt is clean.

Revealing mistake: In the part in the motel where THING is doing morse code on the table to Gomez you can see the cut-out in the table where the guy's hand is sticking through the table.

Trivia: The seedy motel sequences were shot at the Wampum Court Motel in Sylmar, CA, a 1950s relic that had definitely seen better days. To enhance the fleabag image, two gaudily-painted signs were added for the film, touting "air conditioning" and the deliberately misspelled "kitchins."

Trivia: Director Barry Sonnenfeld plays the passenger in one of Gomez's trains.

Trivia: The part of Morticia was originally offered to Cher, who passed because she felt that "The Addams Family" wouldn't do enough to boost her slumping (at least at the time) film career.

Pugsley: Are they dead?
Wednesday: Does it matter?

Gomez Addams: [admiring Mortisha, who is sleeping.] Look at her. I would die for her. I would kill for her. Either way, what bliss!

Gomez: Have no fear. The courts will decide. They say a man who represents himself has a fool for a client. Well, with God as my witness, I am that fool.
