Done ‘Wednesday’? Check Out These Addams Family Movies and TV Shows

If you’ve finished watching Wednesday, the Addams Family spinoff on Netflix, you can find yourself lost in Wednesday Addams and the rest of his eccentric clan. If that’s the case, don’t lose your head about it. There’s a Thing-sized selection of animated and live-action Addams Family movies and TV shows that will keep you entertained until season 2 of monster hit.

The kooky family that originated in Charles Addams’ New Yorker cartoons has been a pop culture staple for more than 50 years, appearing in Addams Family movies, TV programs, video games, comic books, a musical featuring Nathan Lane and Bebe Neuwirth and, of course, lots of merchandise. Most people are familiar with Tim Burton’s adaptation of The Addams Family on Netflix, but there’s a lot more horror to love. Not all Addams antics that have appeared on screen over the years are available to stream today, but this one is.

The Addams Family (classic 1964-1966 TV show)

Snap your fingers. This is the iconic TV series that originally aired on ABC, bringing Morticia, Gomez, Wednesday, Pugsley, Fester, Lurch and loyal armless Thing into living rooms everywhere. It ran for two seasons and started a long line of Addams family entertainment.

Addams Family (1973-1975 cartoon series)

Kids who grew up in the ’70s will remember this Hanna-Barbera Productions cartoon on NBC. It takes the unconventional Addamses on a cross-country road trip, and causes mayhem wherever they go.

The Addams Family (1991 movie)

This film stars Anjelica Huston as matriarch Morticia Addams and Raul Julia as her loving husband Gomez. A young Christina Ricci — who can be seen on Netflix Wednesday as a “normie” Nevermore Academy dorm mom — stars as Wednesday’s daughter, with Jimmy Workman as Pugsley. Christopher Lloyd will play Fester, the family’s creepy but lovable long-lost uncle from the Bermuda Triangle.

Addams Family Values ​​(1993 movie)

Addams Family Reunion (1998 movie)

The Addams clan receives an invitation to a family reunion, but it soon becomes clear that they are united with the wrong children. This entry in the franchise stars Tim Curry as Gomez and Darryl Hannah as Morticia.

The Addams Family (2019 animated movie)

The first animated comedy about the Addams family moved the colorful clan to the suburban suburbs. It features the voices of Oscar Isaac, Charlize Theron, Chloë Grace Moretz, Finn Wolfhard, Nick Kroll, Snoop Dogg, Bette Midler and Allison Janney.

The Addams Family 2 (2021 animated movie)

In this sequel to the 2019 film, Morticia and Gomez worry that their children are growing up and addicted to “screaming time.” So they ditch their scary persona and embark on a road trip in a Victorian-style RV for some family bonding. Messy adventures happen, naturally.
