THE ADDAMS FAMILY is an animated comedy in which a family of ghouls move into a new neighbourhood.

Threat and horror

There are mild comic scares and threat, with the members of the ghoulish family firing crossbow bolts into each other, playing with explosive devices, being taunted by a ghost who resents their presence in the house he haunted alone and who tries to behead one of them with a window, and being attacked by a mob of humans carrying torches and pitchforks. No-one comes to harm and the threat is played strictly for laughs. In other scenes, the family matriarch uses funeral ashes for make-up and a sister buries her brother alive.

Language

There is mild bad language comprising a use of ‘pimp’ in the lyric of a song, but this has no sexual connotation. Very mild bad language includes uses of ‘God’.

The familiar ADDAMS FAMILY figure of a disembodied hand looks at pictures of feet on a laptop, and other examples of very mild rude humour includes the use of a magic spell which causes men’s trousers to fall down, and a woman who refrigerates her underwear.
