Fester's Punctured Romance is the fourth episode of The New Addams Family. It is a remake of the original series episode of the same name.


Uncle Fester is depressed after breaking up with his girlfriend Cruella who was paroled from prison. The family helps him prepare a video for Lucretia, a girl in a dating service catalog. Wednesday and Pugsley are worried for Fester, so just to make sure, they ask Grandmama to brew her Love Potion 666, but Wednesday administers it to a passerby they mistake for Lucretia. Fester takes her to the play room so they can be alone, but Gomez and Morticia find out about the long-lasting potion and make Grandmama brew an antidote.
