They’re creepy and their kooky, mysterious and spooky and best of all their back as animated characters in a new feature film that premieres today! Gomez, Morticia, Wednesday, Pugsley and Uncle Fester are gracing the big screen once again, but this time they’re back in their cartoon forms. What most fans don’t know about the time-honored classic is that The Addams Family was originally a black and white, newspaper cartoon that later appeared on TV. That being said, from 1938 to the present day, mediums of the family have been created— ‘90s live-action films and Broadway musicals. Thus, it only makes sense for audiences to have fallen in love with this all-embracing clan of ghouls. So, with Halloween creeping up, it’s about time for this impulsive, devilish family to become unhinged!
Which characters will be making an alarming comeback?
Gomez Addams: Voiced by Oscar Isaac, this crafty schemer will be representing the head of the Addams household and embellishing his crazy, unconventional personality. The best part is that Gomez’s appearance somewhat mirrors the classic publication featuring him as a short, heavy-set man, rather than someone of an attractive nature. However, he will remain dressed in a chalk-striped suit, flaunting his pencil mustache.
Morticia Addams: Voiced by Charlize Theron, this slim, elegant enchantress is the rotten apple of Gomez’s eye. She’s a devoted mother, quite interested in the French language and very musically inclined. Her character will remain the haunting visionary, featuring long, black hair and a seductive black gown.
Wednesday Addams: Voiced by Chloë Grace Moretz, notably this offbeat character is often portrayed torturing the devote souls around her. Seldon showing emotion, and often bitter with her monotone dialogue, she’s not afraid to let her dark personality shine through.
Pugsley Addams: Voiced by Finn Wolfhard, this spirited, cartoon impersonation embodies all of our favorite traits including, dedicated troublemaker, a genius of the cadaver inventions and his overall eccentric, odd behavior. And yes, the striped shirt is a go!
Uncle Fester (Addams): Voiced by Nick Kroll, this extended family member regularly embodies comedic relief and is always seen wearing his thick, full-length, black fur coat. The most dignitary quality about him is his strange ability to generate electricity, however, despite his menacing look, he is still probably the softest in the Addams’ clan.
And don’t be disappointed! Of course, our beloved, incomprehensible characters cousin Itt, Thing and Lerch will also be making their debut in cartoon form!
