Fester and Granny vs. Grandpapa Addams is the 40th episode of The New Addams Family. It is a remake of the original television series episode "Morticia and Gomez vs. Fester and Grandmama".


Uncle Fester and Grandmama have been spoiling Pugsley and Wednesday. Loathe to leave the children in their care, Gomez and Morticia enlist Grandpapa Addams to babysit while they go on vacation. They arrive at the Bates Motel just as Hurricane Zorba hits. Meanwhile, Wednesday binds Pugsley and sends him out with the laundry. When Gomez and Morticia return, the grandparents are afraid to tell them that they lost Pugsley. Of course, when they ask Wednesday, who is playing with Marie Antoinette, she denies knowing about it.
