Two weeks of unfavorable weather (blue skies and sunshine) keep the Addams stuck indoors where Morticia and Gomez believe Fester and Grandmama spoil the children too much. With Hurricane Zsa-Zsa threatening the Gulf coast, Gomez and Morticia decide to enjoy it at their favorite watch spot, the dilapidated Last Chance Motel. They hire Thudd, a governess, to watch the children, which infuriates Fester and Mama over not being entrusted. They thereby divide the house in half with a white line while preparing to move out. When Thudd arrives, she seems tailor-made to the Addams' sensibilities, but a mix-up in luggage later reveals she's not at all right for the job, forcing Gomez and Morticia to abandon Zsa-Zsa and race home for their children' sake, hoping it's not too late.

I'm concerned about the children.
I know, but every silver lining has its cloud.
