Lurch, the Teenage Idol is the 39th episode of The New Addams Family. It is a remake of the original television series episode of the same name.


The Addams Family records Lurch singing. Gomez pays a producer to promote it, and to everyone's surprise, Lurch becomes a pop sensation. He leaves for a six-month tour in Ghoulapalooza, and the family hires a new butler. Jeeves fits in nicely, improving Gomez' Trainwreck and cooking ooky food, but he doesn't like Thing, so Wednesday and Pugsley chase him off, and a homesick Lurch returns.
