Dead and Breakfast is the second episode of the first season of The Addams Family 1992 animated series.


Wednesday and Pugsley's are depressed by the sunny weather. They are assigned a "creative problem solving through junior career exploration" project in school. Gomez returns from a stay at a bad hotel and suggests they turn the Addams home into a dead and breakfast. Wednesday and Pugsley are reluctant to start the project, but do not want to let down their parents. After the hotel's opening, trouble starts. Not only is Norman Normanmeyer determined to ruin their business, but the Addamses receive a visit from a health inspector, who is courted by Granny. They also have a guest, Mrs. Quaint, that sets her eyes on the family fortune. Wednesday and Pugsley eventually use booby traps to capture the woman, who is wanted in eight states for hotel burglary, thereby solving a problem creatively.
