Wednesday Addams is someone you'd want on your side if you ever run into any horrible catcallers. In a new video from the web series, Adult Wednesday Addams, we see her all grown up and deftly taking down some dudes who harass and tell her she needs to smile more.

Comedy writer and actress Melissa Hunter masters her inner Christina Ricci in her L.A.-based web series. Instead of enduring catcalling from some gross bros (like women have to do all the time), Wednesday Addams follows them to their home for some sweet revenge and unleashes three of her scary friends (in which only one has been institutionalized) to "lurk on your sidewalk and pay you compliments all day long," she warns in the video.
