But if Tancredo is Uncle Fester, who is Maes?

Our vote is for Pugsley, the weirdo son who wants to be normal.

For the record, here's how Maes explained his Uncle Fester/Tancredo comparison to KOA: "He's fun to have at a party, sticking a lightbulb in his mouth, but you wouldn't want him to lead anything."

Freda Poundstone as Grandmama.
