Tim Burton's take on the Addams Family has landed on Netflix and taken the world by storm, dethroning Stranger Things to score the most viewing time in a single week for an English-language series on the streamer.


Titled Wednesday, the series follows the legendary clan's titular teenage daughter (Jenna Ortega) as she settles into a new school for outcasts, attempts to harness her emerging psychic ability, halt a killing spree and solve a decades-long supernatural mystery.

The show's spooky action is heightened by an epic soundtrack, featuring classic hits, pop songs, and instrumental covers.

But it's one song in particular that has captured fans' attention, with Ortega's dance moves to Goo Goo Muck by The Cramps in episode 4 sparking viral TikTok trends and becoming a worldwide sensation.

Ortega recently revealed that she choreographed the dance moves herself. Speaking on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Ortega revealed a discussion between herself and executive producer and director Tim Burton about the scene had led to the dance coming together.

She said: "He came to my trailer about two days before we shot it and said, 'Hey Jenna, so I know you said you wanted to choreograph this yourself' because I refused to see a choreographer. He was like, 'I know you've got it, you've been working on it, I'm not even worried about it. I trust you.'"

Ortega continued: "And I said, 'Oh, yeah. You know, it's all so good.' And I had not gone over it at all. I was doing cello that week, fencing that week. I just didn't have time.

"I was kicking myself, I felt like such a fool. I'm not a dancer, I don't do any of that, I have no experience in that field. And then yeah, I didn't sleep for two days."

She continued: "I watched videos of Siouxsie and the Banshees, Denis Lavant in Beau Travail. I found archival footage of goth kids dancing in clubs in the '80s. Lene Lovich, Nina Hagen, just anything I could get my hands on, and then on the day I thought, 'All right, well let's just see what happens.'"

The theme music for Wednesday was created by Danny Elfman, the Emmy-winning composer and singer who has worked frequently with Tim Burton. Both Elfman and Chris Bacon (Bates Motel, Smash) composed music for the whole series.

Elfman has written the scores for most of Tim Burton's projects, from Beetlejuice and Edward Scissorhands to Big Fish, Corpse Bride and The Nightmare Before Christmas, for which he also provided Jack Skellington's singing voice.

Wednesday is streaming now on Netflix. Sign up for Netflix from £6.99 a month. Netflix is also available on Sky Glass and Virgin Media Stream.
