Jack and Jill and the Beanstalk: Uncle Fester asks Wednesday and Pugsley to tell him a bedtime story. They tell the story of Jack and Jill (seen as Wednesday and Pugsley). Tom Thumb (Thing) pushes them down the hill and Snappy eats their cow. They rent Snappy to the Big Bad Wolf for some magic beans, so he can get the three little pigs. The beans grow into a huge beanstalk they climb to encounter a giant (Norman Normanmeyer) in the clouds. The giant puts them in his dungeon, but Rumplestiltskin (Fester) helps them escape.

Festerman Returns: Uncle Fester is depressed after receiving another rejection slip from a comic book company, so Wednesday asks him to read her his latest comic called Festerman Returns: The Enemy Within. Festerman learns that his fellow comrades in the Fester League have gone missing. Festergirl notices that Festergator is an impostor before she too disappears. Festerman discovers that MegaFingers is behind this. After a long tussle, Festerman tells him his weakness, irradiated chimneys from the planet Feston's explosion. When MegaFingers produces one, it fails to affect Festerman so he gives up. Inspired by Wednesdays approval, Fester vows to continue writing.

Hand Delivered: A female mail carrier who prefers to deliver the mail herself, has problems when Thing wants to get the Addams Family mail on his own. She employs the latest in postal transportation equipment, a tank, but when Thing dismantles it she realizes he's not so bad after all, and takes a vacation, letting Thing take over her route.
