AND ANOTHER THING ABOUT THE ADDAMS FAMILY MOVIES…. they got the character of morticia addams ALL wrong. she is more serious than gomez, yes, but she isn’t as emotionally distant as they try to portray her as

same with the kiddos. they are outright cruel in the movies. this is not a character change that i appreciate, and i appreciate it less the older i get

the whole addams family is strange and unusual, but they are not cruel. that is a fundamental trait of them that the movies lack. they got gomez alright i suppose, out of all the characters, but everyone else has this modern attitude of mean spiritedness that just totally misses the mark


@shade yes! and the new ones had them dripping with this smug superiority! the original addams family never looked down on anyone, they went into everything with such a spirit of openness

@binchicken YES!!!! they were very warm and welcoming to outsiders, very hospitable and never thought they were better than “normies.” they just wanted to be a part of the community!
