The weird yet friendly Addams Family has returned in animated form.
A new teaser trailer for the upcoming Addams Family animated movie debuted Tuesday and it shows off torture experiments (the family uses them to relax); an infestation of creepy critters; and of course butler Lurch playing a duet with Thing on the harpsichord.
There's even an It movie joke about red balloons and how evil clowns tend to be holding them.
The style of the animated characters harkens back to original comic strip The Addams Family by cartoonist Charles Addams. It first appeared in The New Yorker in 1938.
Directed by Conrad Vernon and Greg Tiernan (Sausage Party), The Addams Family animated film hits theaters on Oct. 11 in the US and Oct. 25 in the UK. No date is available yet for Australia.
