Morticia and Gomez are beside themselves to understand how the annual charity bizarre could have overlooked them this year. It's for the good cause of building a retirement home, but Gomez has plans of his own for a retirement home, complete with a polo field, skateboarding ramps and tennis courts, to put theirs out of business. Simultaneously, it's Granny Frump's birthday (Morticia's mother). Morticia and Gomez have her visit so they can surprise her with a trip to a beauty spa for her birthday. Granny Frump knows something's up and, by the plans laid out on Gomez's desk, figures they're planning to put her away. She modifies her behavior to convince them she's not ready to go, which only convinces them she needs to go to a funny farm instead. Written by
