Parks Commissioner Fiske visits the Addams house seeking contributions for expansion of the city zoo. Gomez believes visiting Cousin Itt - all hairy and gibbering four feet tall of him - would be perfect as the zoo's new curator. He has the two meet, but Commissioner Fisk misunderstands the intent and mistakes Itt for a new exotic animal attraction whom he has hauled away in chains when the others aren't looking. When the family finds out what's happened, Uncle Fester is ready to administer retribution the Addams way - with a bullet from behind.

In case you change your mind, I'll reserve a cage for him. In fact, I'll reserve cages for ALL of you!

Cages for all of us? I'm not sure I'd like that.
Morticia Frump Addams
Of course not, darling. We'll insist on one big FAMILY cage.
