Now, let's get into a few fun facts about one of our favorite, creepy families - The Addams Family!

Do you know how Wednesday Addams got her name? Her name was inspired by a famous nursery rhyme called “Monday’s Child”. The rhyme assigns a character to each day of the week, and as the rhyme goes, “Wednesday’s child is full of woe.” This name was not created by Charles Addams at all, but by the company that was making toys that would accompany the television show.

Did you know Cher initially wanted to play Morticia? There are wild rumors that Kim Basinger was once offered the part as Morticia Addams, but according to Rudin, there was only ever one woman who was going to be the dark matriarch of the family. However, for those who might have noticed a similarity between the character and a certain music diva, there could've been a world where Cher played Morticia. Rudin confirmed that if Cher could “turn back time” she would’ve loved the part:  "Cher was interested, but we never considered anyone else."

Now, while we love Gomez Addams, Addams Family Values was one of the last movies for actor Raúl Juliá. Diagnosed with stomach cancer in 1991 and suffering from a series of illness after that, The Addams Family Values became one of Raúl Juliá’s last movies before his tragic passing at the age of 54. Sadly, Juliá’s passing was just another sign that marked the end of the Sonnenfeld era of the franchise. Although a third movie had been planned, the middling gross of Values and Juliá’s passing meant that Saban purchased the rights and catastrophically rebooted the series with Addams Family Reunion. Not that there was anything wrong with Tim Curry being recast as Gomez, but if there were any critics who thought Values was a bit of a dud, try watching Addams Family Reunion.
