What are the benefits of reading these Wednesday Addams quotes?

The Addams Family was initially a comic in the newspaper, created by Charles Addams.

The characters were nameless until they turned The Addams Family into a TV show.

The inspiration for Wednesday’s name was a nursery rhyme.

The line goes: “Wednesday’s child is full of woe.”

Full of woe is an adequate description for the only daughter of Gomez and Morticia Addams.

She doesn’t:

  • hug anyone
  • show emotion
  • say happy things; in fact, she says the most depressing things

You will have a much better understanding of the character after reading these Wednesday Addams quotes.

Her signature look, pale skin, dark braided pigtails, and black dress have become a Halloween costume staple.

Several actresses have portrayed her throughout the years, but that honor went to Christina Ricci in the two movies.

She delivered each of the following quotes with perfection!

Besides Ricci, other actresses to have portrayed Wednesday include Lisa Loring, Nicole Fugere, Rachel Potter, and Jenna Ortega in the 2022 series, Wednesday.

Did you enjoy these Wednesday Addams quotes?

I was a fan of the original TV show when I was a kid (it aired on Nick at Nite).

I had never seen the movies until recently, but my husband had a delightful trip down memory lane and was shocked I had made it through the 90s without seeing them.

Our son, who is 11, wanted to watch the latest animated version on Netflix.

At that moment, I realized how many generations have been laughing at this creepy and kooky family.

They may be mysterious and spooky, especially Wednesday, but they are also delightful.

Her deadpan (no pun intended) sense of sarcasm and snark is something I envy sometimes.

Charles Addams had this to say about the child of woe as he saw Wednesday:

“Child of woe is wan and delicate… sensitive and on the quiet side, she loves the picnics and outings to the underground caverns… a solemn child, prim in dress and, on the whole, pretty lost… secretive and imaginative, poetic, seems underprivileged and given to occasional tantrums… has six toes on one foot.” — Charles Addams
