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.

Did You Know?
When Uncle Fester says Mr. Courtney looks like THRUSH and that his pocket pens are likely microphones, he's referring to another popular TV show at the time, _"The Man from U.N.C.L.E."_ (1964) (an espionage adventure series where good agents from UNCLE thwart the misdeeds of bad people from THRUSH).

Mrs. Courtney is on the phone accepting Morticia's invite to tea and is supposed to be holding the front page of the newspaper (folded in half) with the article about Abigail Adams. (we see the title when they show the close up of the paper). However just before she answers the phone it is clearly a different paper because there's less room at the top title area and we should see half of the title (The Daily Chronicle). Also she is holding the paper up when she glances at it while talking but the close up shows the paper setting on a cushion (perhaps of a chair) not being held up by her. See more
And now if we could just meet OLD Mrs. Addams.

As soon as she's finished wrestling the alligator.
