When the plant captures Lafferty toward the end of the movie, it has just one limb around the villain's neck at first, but then in the next two shots of him gagging on the encircling leafy fronds and Uncle Fester freeing him while irritably scolding the plant ["How many times has Gomez told you NOT TO PLAY WITH STRANGERS?!"], there are two big limbs around the bad guy's neck, as if they're hands/arms that are trying to hug him choke him to death].

There does seem to be something about the 1970's that leads to awkward TV movies and specials. Just one year later the Star Wars holiday special was inflicted upon the public. But anyway...this reunion of the original cast is the best thing going to recommend this show. The direction is very slow. Many scenes just sit there leading to nothing as the gags have long since worn out their welcome. Still however I do enjoy watching this thing no pun intended. The daylight scenes have a bleak gray sky background which lends an odd almost sad air to the proceedings. And the laugh track sounds as if it can't decide whether to join in or sit this one out. So there you have it. I can't imagine anyone is going to finish this movie and declare it a triumph of TV comedy but it will do for a Halloween nostalgia trip. I recall seeing this when it ran the first time and then seeing it on afternoon movie slots during Halloween weeks for a few years after.
