Storyline

When an outraged art critic recommends that Mama get a teacher to help her paint better, Gomez gladly hires none other than Picasso for Mama. Not Pablo Picasso, Sam Picasso, a penniless non-talent who's more than willing to be flown to affluent America to teach in exchange for free room and board. Despite outside opinions to the contrary, Gomez believes Sam is an undiscovered master. Consequently, Sam soon finds himself locked in the Addams' basement until such time as he "finds himself" and starts cranking out masterpieces. Written by statmanjeff

Unusual episode of Addams Family!
26 August 2007 | by heybhcSee all my reviews

I noticed a couple of scenes that were recycled from earlier episodes (Gomez and Fester standing on their heads and Gomez and Morticia fencing) that had new dialog dubbed in. The dubbing was pretty obvious and I've just been watching the collected first season so the scenes were familiar to me. In the first scene when Gomez rolls to his feet, Fester isn't present. I thought that maybe it was something to do with Jackie Coogan not being present, as he'd been absent from the prior two episodes, but Fester shows up later in the show with new scenes, so what goes? I can't imagine that they saved that much money on reusing two scenes like that.
