Prominent socialite Abigail Addams is in a feud with the Gomez Addams branch of the family, and is threatening to sue Gomez for his millions. Meanwhile, little Wednesday has met a boy her age, Robespierre Courtney, and wants him to be her boyfriend. The boy's mother, Mrs. Courtney, a social climber who knows nothing of the Abigail-Gomez feud, thinks that Wednesday is Abigail's granddaughter, and is eager to have tea with the Addams family, expecting to meet Abigail. When the Addams family invites Robespierre and parents to tea so that Wednesday can play with Robespierre, she eagerly accepts. Each member of the Addams family, in the morning before the scheduled tea with the Courtneys, takes turns coaching Wednesday in how to catch Robespierre's heart. Robespierre and his parents arrive, and after Wednesday's startling greeting the two children go off to play while the adult Addamses and Courtneys socialize, with the usual disastrous (for the Courtneys) results.
