Storyline

Lurch receives his annual invitation to The Butlers' Ball, which he ignores as usual because he can't dance. Morticia is determined he accept this year's invitation to avoid the reclusive direction in which he's headed. To that end, a dance teacher is hired, but when that doesn't work (due to frequent fainting spells), the whole family rallies to Lurch's cause, to the endangerment of innocent furniture and healthy vertebrae everywhere.
