Storyline

Morticia and Gomez are beside themselves to understand how the annual charity bizarre could have overlooked them this year. It's for the good cause of building a retirement home, but Gomez has plans of his own for a retirement home, complete with a polo field, skateboarding ramps and tennis courts, to put theirs out of business. Simultaneously, it's Granny Frump's birthday (Morticia's mother). Morticia and Gomez have her visit so they can surprise her with a trip to a beauty spa for her birthday. Granny Frump knows something's up and, by the plans laid out on Gomez's desk, figures they're planning to put her away. She modifies her behavior to convince them she's not ready to go, which only convinces them she needs to go to a funny farm instead. Written by statmanjeff

Trivia

Margaret Hamilton wore the same costume for two productions, 26 years apart. The dress she wore as Miss Gulch in The Wizard of Oz (1939) was worn again when she played Grandma Frump. See more »

Goofs

Around 23 minutes, when Morticia announces that the letter is from her mother, Gomez does a few stunts on the bars. But the stunt at a slower rate will show that it is a stuntman, and not John Astin. See more »

Quotes

Wednesday Addams: [reciting her new poem] "I have a gloomy little spider; I love to sit down close beside her. She never knows where she has been 'cause all she does is spin and spin. My spider's quite a busy roamer, which is why I called her Homer. She loves to work and spin all day, and then at night she likes to play. Her web is like my mother's hair; her eyes have got my father's stare. She may not jump or twist or bend but a spider's a girl's best friend."
