Gomez, the People's Choice is the 38th episode of The New Addams Family. It is a remake of the original television series episode of the same name.


When Gomez becomes dissatisfied with the local government, he decides to run for mayor. The incumbent mayor sneaks into The Addams Family Mansion to try to find some skeletons in their closet, and he does. Their debate turns into a boxing match, and Gomez throws it, withdrawing his candidacy while exposing the mayor's corruption.
