Synopsis: Uncle Fester gets married while Wednesday and Pugsly get sent off to summer camp and Morticia gives birth to a wonderfully mustachioed infant.

Reaction: A bit more cohesive and directed than the earlier outing and still a lot of fun.

Personal Rating: 7/10

"I believe they own ..."
"Gomez, don't."
"...a Buick!"
