The comedy gets even blacker in this sequel outing, as the Addams welcome their newest addition - a bouncing baby boy named Pubert. There's more trouble afoot than just dirty diapers, though; older siblings Wednesday and Pugsley are determined to off their little bro, and the new nanny has her eyes set on Uncle Fester - but is she after his heart, or his fortune?
Top 10 Fun Facts
- Gender bending babies: Morticia and Gomez's new son Pubert was actually played by a pair of twin girls, Kaitlyn and Kristen Hooper.
- Lighting is everything: Morticia's look gets its extra-dramatic flair with the addition of a single beam of light across her eyes that gradually fades outward.
- Double-take: at camp, Wednesday and Pugsley are forced to watch the movie Annie, which co-starred actor Tim Curry - who stepped in as their father Gomez in 1998's "Addams Family Reunion" after the death of Raul Julia.
- The King of Pop meets the world's creepiest family: Michael Jackson wrote a song for the film that did not make it onto the soundtrack. The tune, "Is It Scary," appeared on a later Jackson album.
- The classics never go out of style: Uncle Fester's "makeover" is inspired by Boris Karloff's mad scientist from The Invisible Ray.
- Nerd alert: David Krumholtz's character briefly carries a copy of the Stephen Hawking book "A Brief History of Time."
- It's all in the make-up: Carol Kane, who plays Grandmama, is almost a year younger than her on-screen daughter Anjelica Huston.
- Cartoonist Charles Addams had originally suggested the name Pubert for the older son, but producers of The Addams Family TV show rejected it. Pugsley was used instead.
- Don't listen to Wednesday: the "Chippewa" in Camp Chippewa comes from the Native American nation also known as Ojibwa. It doesn't mean "orphan."
- There's macabre, and then there's just plain scary: David Krumholtz's character mentions a pair of real life murderers in reference to his "Serial Killer Card Collection" - Jack the Ripper and the Zodiac Killer.
