This `ghoul comedy' is based on Charles Addams' cartoons, which appeared in the New Yorker and featured such characters as Morticia, Gomez and Uncle Fester. The series lasted for two seasons on ABC, a run that coincided (spookily?) with CBS's `The Munsters (more…)
Because she thinks Fester and Grandmama are spoiling the children, Morticia hires a governess to watch them.
When Ophelia laments that she has been jilted, Morticia suggests a career as an alternative to marriage. She tries chemistry first (with explosive results) then turns to operatic singing. Cousin Itt is summoned to coach her to stardom.
Lurch suffers from unrequited love over Tiny Trivia, Morticia's visiting school chum who only has eyes for show business. The entire family decides to try to turn their stolid butler in to a new personality.
When Uncle Fester incinerates the family's stuffed bear with his flame thrower, Morticia reports the accident to the insurance company.
