Bonus 1: The TV series was based on a cartoon from The New Yorker.

The Addams Family was first broadcasted in 1964. It was based on a cartoon created by cartoonist Charles Addams, which appeared in The New Yorker from 1938 to 1964. From its origin, it became a satire of the ideal family of the twentieth century: a wealthy aristocratic family that showed its macabre side of it. In addition to the TV series, this idea also inspired movies, video games, books, and music. It soon became a significant influence on pop culture.

Bonus 2: Wednesday was portrayed by actress Christina Ricci.

In the iconic ’90s film, Wednesday was portrayed by actress Christina Ricci. In the new project, Ricci plays a teacher for outcasts as an ordinary person. By the way, Jenna Ortega, who played Wednesday in the new series, revealed that Ricci never tried to mentor her or show her how to portray this character.
