Storyline

Morticia and Fester overhear Gomez on the phone with his broker. Hearing the words "broke, penniless and wiped out," they believe Gomez is financially ruined, not realizing he's merely discussing the misfortunes of others before launching into a secret plan to buy his own railroad as a surprise to Morticia. Morticia rallies the rest of the family to figure out ways to earn money and help Gomez. Grandmama prepares to be a beauty stylist, Fester forms an escort service with Lurch, the children sell drinks at a sidewalk stand (henbane) while Morticia offers fencing and tango lessons. None of these amount to much. Finally Morticia comes upon some forgotten railroad stock she owns - the very same that Gomez secretly seeks - which ends up becoming a crazy bidding war over the phone with Gomez' frazzled broker caught in the middle.

Goofs

When Fester blows open the painting to access the safe, the safe's door is already hanging off its hinges before the painting even detaches from the wall. Also, the smoke from the explosion clears much too quickly. See more »
