The actors and actresses were concerned about the ambiguity of the big Fester storyline in the script. Initially, it was going to be unknown if Gordon, the man suffering from memory loss, that looked just like Uncle Fester, was actually Fester. The cast members nominated Christina Ricci to give an impassioned plea to Scott Rudin and Barry Sonnenfeld two weeks before shooting, that Fester should not be an imposter. Sonnenfeld remembered that the only cast member to not care, was Christopher Lloyd, the man playing Fester.
Several Addams Family film scenes reference original Charles Addams illustrations, most notably the introductory sequence (where the Addams family pours a cauldron of oil on Christmas carolers), the passenger on Gomez’s toy train, the octopus painted on the footboard of Wednesday’s bed, and Pugsley with the road sign.
