In a philanthropic moment, Morticia and Gomez give their beloved 462-year-old harpsichord to Mr. Belmont, an appreciative passerby who wants it for his museum. They don't stop till later to think how this might affect Lurch. Lurch is devastated. The family tries to interest him in other past-times, but to no avail. Gomez and Fester finally decide they must build him a duplicate harpsichord. Once built, harmony is restored, up until two delivery men arrive a day early, while Lurch is home alone, to take the real harpsichord away. Lurch now feels betrayed, and there's nothing quite so fearsome skulking about the mansion as an angry Lurch. Written by statmanjeff

Did You Know?


Fester's comment about it taking three days to build a harpsichord might have tipped off Lurch that it's a fake; however, Morticia reacts to it by elbowing Gomez rather than Fester. See more »
