Written by Harry Winkler and Hannibal Coons
Director Sidney Lanfield


Uncle Fester's pen-pal Madelyn Cavendish Beauregard Faversham Firestone Smith from Paris, Illinois is coming to visit him, so Morticia offers to unbolt the Guest Room for her. He is reluctant because he's told her he's a handsome, romantic type with a lot of hair and is very athletic. Gomez and Morticia convince Fester he needs a hairpiece and Gomez calls in Max, a toupee salesman. After seeing Kitty Kat, Max is terrified and makes a hasty exit, leaving his samples. Trying them on in his bedroom, Fester has trouble deciding which to wear.

Madelyn arrives, and is attracted to Fester. Showing her around the house, Pierre waggles his antlers for her. When she speaks French to him, he's hooked. Morticia suggests marriage, and offers them a ring, Grandmother Frump's gopher-tooth ring. Then she starts to realize that Fester's not what he appears to be and when his toupee falls off, she finally storms out. Fester's not too bothered. He lets Morticia use the spare wigs for target practice
