25 Best Wednesday Addams Quotes & One-Liners

wednesday addams quotes

It’s spooky season, which means it’s time to watch your favorite Halloween movies and spooky TV series. One of the most famous spooky series is The Addams Family, which is iconic for its chilling characters and mysteriously funny quotes — especially the famous Wednesday Addams quotes. 

The Addams Family started as a comic about a spooky family in The New Yorker, to a TV series in the '60s giving life and personality to this ghoulish family, that is not your average family because what gives them delight and joy, most normal people would be terrified of. Their witchy and vampire-esque clothing, to their seven-foot-tall butler, and helping hand (which is literally a disembodied hand) all make the Addams family terrifying to their neighbors and friends.

However, the Addams family is a healthy representation of a loving and caring family, no matter how peculiar they may be.

Wednesday Addams is a favorite from the series because of her sarcastic and sadistic personality, sinister planning, and goth aesthetic. Her signature iconic white Peter Pan collar onto a black minidress with braids is a very simple and aesthetic style that is a staple any time of year and is always a Halloween costume favorite
