The idea is fun to watch, you would enjoy and giggle a few times while watching, that I can guarantee/ But this animation lacked the needed touch, and the story was just a step away from the needed lap to take it over the touch line as a fun time in the movies with the family.

The Addams Family has been one old tale I have come to enjoy especially the 1991 live-action movie adaptation of the same name.
The Addamses are a wealthy, gothic like family, and an inversion of what a real family household is. Good is bad, clean is dirty and stuff like that.
Created in 1938 by Charles Addams as a comic the family consist of Parents Gomez and Morticia Addams. The children Wednesday and Pugsley. The extended family in Uncle Fester, Grandma and Cousin Itt. The household helpers Thing (a disembodied hand) and Lurch the butler.

This animation unlike each time I happen to stumble on the Addamses while growing up started with the pairing of Gomez and Morticia. We see the Addamses get run out of their homes and see how Gomez and Morticia settled in New Jersey and raised their family.
As expected the Addamses had their nature of being inverse. Dead flowers preferred to live ones, a lion instead of a dog, the house is dark and gloomy and everyone is comfortable dressed in black.

A little bit away of from their home is a community all bright and lovely. The head of that community is a lady by the name Needler. She is a reality TV host (famous for her house makeover) and her life is about building a perfect community. She holds the community in place with her own weird way of seeing things.

She was all happy when it came to her knowledge that a little distance from their community was an old former asylum which is now a home to the Addams. She decided to take the Addams house as a project and visits them with a plan of making over their home.
Gomez was more opened to having new guests visit, but Morticia was not and wanted nothing to do with the outsiders. Her daughter Wednesday has taken a liking to the outside world and wanted to be a part of it. While Pugsley her son is busy preparing for the right of passage into manhood, he is being trained for this by Gomez and his Uncle Fester.

The plots and evil intentions get bubbling to the top early in this animation and we get to see how the Addamses adapt to the new people they just met.

Like I said above the whole animation needed a little more to be great. I do hope that will be added in the proposed plan for a second part. Yes, the studio is expecting all to go well with this so as to part ways for a second part.
