I'm sorry, but little Wednesday's middle name was Friday, NOT Thursday.
This was shown in another quiz.
MeTV, you should check your related quizes before you put them out for us to try.

That was not your fault.
MeTV messed up.
Wednesday's middle name was Friday, not Thursday.

I thought it was ironic that Gomez always used the exclamation "capital" and then later Carolyn Jones would finish out her career in a soap opera of the same name.

15 for 16. I had to do well on this one, I grew up in Charles Addams hometown of Westfield, NJ.
Check the annual Addams Fest there, lot's of fun. Plus plenty of good restaurants and
Mindowaskin Park which looks like a Norman Rockwell painting of what an ideal American
park is supposed to look like. So ideal the TV series Ed used it over and over again.
Many of Addam's cartoons incorporate actual sites in town, like the park. See the
house that was the basis for the Addams mansion. Whoa, I sound like the Chamber of
Commerce.

Acacia cognata is NOT “poison ivy”. Question#2 is defective. So, I’ll chalk a perfect score.

Wednesday’s middle name is in fact “Friday”.

You're right about little Wednesday.
Her middle name is Friday, not Thursday.
