The Addams family is one of the most unusual families you’ll ever meet. Created by cartoonist Charles Addams in his New Yorker magazine cartoons and later in a series of movies, the family consists of Gomez and Morticia, their children Wednesday and Pugsley, Uncle Fester, Grandmama, Lurch (the butler), Thing (a disembodied hand) and Cousin It. Their home is an unchanging Victorian mansion with an outside garden maze. The Addamses are quite happy being creepy and unusual but despite their outward appearance, they are quite happy.
What do you think of the new name?
A lot of people are unhappy with “Wednesday”. They feel it is a step in the wrong direction for The Addams Family, and will not be taken as seriously by audiences. While Wednesday might not carry the same weight as “The Addams Family,” it’s still a different show, and changing its name couldn’t have changed all that much. This is just an attention-grabbing way to hype up this new show, which starts on October 11th.
What are fans expecting from this new series Wednesday?
I think this is a good thing because I like the way they treated Wednesday in the other series. Now that NBC has announced the title of their The Addams Family reboot. The first thing that came to mind was that the new Wednesday should be a girl. So it is a good thing that the original Wednesday has returned to her original name instead of being named Wednesday Addams. I think the new series will be just really good, and I am very happy that they are bringing back The Addams Family. I always thought the show was better than what the movies were. It’s a little disappointing because I thought there would be something different about Wednesday but it is the same character in a new form.
