You know Wednesday Addams, right? She’s the dark-haired girl with the dark outlook from “The Addams Family” — Gomez and Morticia’s pale-skinned teenage daughter. She was seen on TV in the 1964-1966 ABC show “The Addams Family,” which is based on a 1938 cartoon and was eventually made into a movie series, a TV film, two animated movies from 2019 and 2021, and even a stage musical.

Wednesday herself got very popular as a result of the two movies from the 1990s that starred Christina Ricci as the character, She’s even getting her own Netflix series from Tim Burton this fall.
