Happyester Fester is the first episode of the first season of The Addams Family 1992 animated series.


Uncle Fester creates a new fabric called Happyester. He and Gomez present it to their neighbor Norman Normanmeyer, who runs Normanwear, an underwear manufacturing company. Normanmeyer is enthusiastic to buy the formula and offers to make Uncle Fester his partner, but Uncle Fester makes ooky demands before he signs the contract. Meanwhile, a rival underwear company RumpCo has sent an Underwear Hitman, Fingers, to take care of Fester. After Wednesday saves the day, Uncle Fester is happy to sign the contract, but as soon as Normanmeyer receives the formula, he throws them out. Nevertheless, Uncle Fester misinterprets the action as a friendly deed. Later, it turns out Happyester has itchy side effects, something that delights the Addamses, but causes bad publicity for Normanwear, so Uncle Fester rushes to support Normanmeyer.
