Joan Cusack in Adams Family Values

Joan Cusack (1962 - )

Film Deaths[]

  • Addams Family Values (1993) [Debbie Jellinsky]: Electrocuted (in a comically exaggerated fashion) when the Addams baby causes a short-circuit in the electric chairs she had rigged up for the rest of the Addams Family. She is reduced to a pile of ashes and credit cards.
  • Mars Needs Moms (2011; animated) [Mom]: Proviging the voice of a mother, she passes out and has a near death experience when she gives her helmet to Seth Dusky (Milo); she is later brought back to life when Dan Folger (George "Gribble" Ribble) gives her his mom's helmet.

Television Death:[]

  • Saturday Night Live (Nov. 9, 1985) [Yuppie]: In the "Where You're Going" commercial parody, she dies off-screen of unspecified circumstances, along with the other yuppies. They are seen burning in Hell. (Played for comic effect.)
  • Saturday Night Live (May 24, 1986) [Himself]: Burned to death, alongside most of the cast and crew, when Billy Martin douses the room with gasoline and lights it on fire before the good-nights. Everyone can be seen running and screaming around the smoky room as the credits roll in a cliff-hanger parody. They don't die on-screen, but their fates are clear. This lampoons the season 11's (1985-86) cast which was not well-received and criticized for not gelling together into a comedic ensemble. Only Jon Lovitz, Nora Dunn and Dennis Miller would make it back to the next season. (Played for comic effect.)
