Every ‘90s kid remembers The Addams Family movies. There were two movies to be exact: The Addams Family (1991)and Addams Family Values (1993). It was based off a cartoon turned ‘60s TV series about a gothic and morbidly obsessed family made up of a host of interesting (and otherworldly) characters. Morticia and Gomez Addams were the mother and father, and Wednesday and Pugsley were their two deranged children.
In the films, Jimmy Workman played Pugsley Addams. He was a twisted boy who showed a high degree of craftsmanship and ingenuity. He loved building guillotines and removing stop signs from intersections. He also probably had a thing for killing neighborhood cats.
3. Wednesday Was Pugsley's Dark-Hearted Little Sister
Wednesday Addams was right out of an Edgar Allan Poe story. She was a master of morbid humor and had an obsession with death. She also was really interested in the Bermuda Triangle. Workman’s sister Shanelle was supposedly considered for the role, but it went to actress Christina Ricci. Ricci’s career has really taken off since The Addams Family. Workman went in a different direction.
4. Pugsley Played The Victim In His Sisters ‘Games’
Pugsley would always end up being part of Wednesday’s death-defying experiments. She electrocuted him, poisoned him and used him for target practice. In the second film, the two teamed up to try to kill their little brother, Pubert.
5. 'The Addams Family' Was Jimmy Workman's First Role
Unfortunately, Addams Family Values was Puerto Rican actor Raul Julia’s penultimate feature film. He was an award-winning actor in theater and film. He played Gomez Addams alongside Workman in both Addams’ films. Anjelica Huston played his wife, Morticia.
Jimmy Workman is Ariel Winter’s (Modern Family) big brother! We’re not sure what Workman is doing with his career nowadays. But before Ariel turned 18, Workman was trying to get custody of Winter away from his older sister Shanelle Grey. Grey won custody of Winter after Winter accused their mother of being emotionally abusive.
See that little girl in the photo? That’s Ariel Winter! Who would have known they were related?
