3 INT. PUGSLEY'S ROOM - SAME TIME 3

Pugsley crouches on the floor, playing with his kid-sizedchemistry set.

The walls of his room are covered with road signs he'scollected -- "Bridge Out!", "Detour! Excavation Ahead!",

"Dangerous Undertow!", "Keep Clear! High Voltage!"

SAWED-OFF STOP SIGNS, still on their poles, are stackedin the corner.

In another corner stands a CYLINDRICAL FLOOR-TO-CEILING

FISH TANK, FILLED WITH PIRANHA.

This tubby energetic monster of a nine-year-old boy hasevery chance of growing up to be the public monster hisparents would be proud of.

He MIXES chemicals in a beaker. The brew steams. Grinning

wickedly, Pugsley SWALLOWS it down.

He contorts, undergoing the beginnings of a transformation,

then SHRINKS to the size of a mouse. Laughing, hecrawls out of his human-size pajamas.

THE ADDAMS FAMILY - 11/28/90 4.

A5 INT. ATTIC - SAME TIME A5

Solemn and mournful, ten-year-old Wednesday has blackhair and white skin like her mother. She sits on a stool

among the stored Addams' family objects, ONE END OF ASTRING TIED TO HER TOOTH, THE OTHER TIED TO A TRAP DOOR.

The trap door is flung open, GRANNY pokes her headthrough. She's a giggly hag who looks like she was inthe bathtub when the hairdryer fell in.

Wednesday's pulled tooth swings at the end of the string.

WEDNESDAY:

Thank you, Grandmama.

In a foul mood, Granny tromps up into the attic.
