Excerpt from Genesis Game Guide by The Scribe

NAME:             Addams Family series (2 titles)
AUTHOR/VENDOR:    Ocean/Acclaim
RELEASED:         various
TYPE:             various
LANGUAGE:         English

PREMISE:          Two very different games inspired by the popular live-
                  action movies starring Raul Julia, Anjelica Huston, and
                  Cristopher Lloyd - both derived from the long-running
                  comic strip created by Charles Addams for the New Yorker

IMPRESSIONS:      I'll keep it short and sweet - the good movie got the
                  bad arcade game, and the bad movie got the good role-
                  playing game.  The third movie was so pathetic that it
                  didn't get a game at all - but then again, it didn't have
                  the late Raul Julia, either.

VARIATIONS:       The Addams Family (1993, chan-style platformer in which
                    Gomez must search the Addams estate for the lost
                    family fortune)
                  Addams Family Values (1994, top-down adventure game in
                    which Uncle Fester takes over the search for the
                    missing baby Pubert, the newest member of the family -
                    often referred to as Fester's Quest on the boards)

It's really good that Values never made it to Genesis.
