Meanwhile a community is raised by Margaux Needler, who is the responsible for the sales of the house, and the marsh is drained. When she sees the old mansion on the neighborhood, she decides to get rid of the Addams Family.Written by

Morticia says there's usually a murderous clown attached to the end of balloons. This is a homage to the horror story "It", and Finn Wolfhard (Pugsley Addams) had starred in the 2017 adaptation. See more »
If I'd known you were coming I could've made up the dungeon.
Don't worry about me, I can just sleep in the attic and you'll never even know I'm here.
I've practiced that move in a lot of houses.

I am an avid fan of the Addams family, and rewatch their movies each Halloween season. When I saw there was to be an animated re-make, I pictured it to be a mixture of the timelessness of their previous films and the entertainment of The Nightmare Before Christmas - fun for the whole family. However, as a young adult, I was not in the least bit entertained. The story line was definitely created for children, depicting the importance of inclusion/acceptance and family bond. Which I'm sure is very important for the younger generations. Yet I just was unable to connect with my long-standing enthusiasm for the Addams family during this movie.
