Morticia's Favorite Charity is the 23rd episode of The New Addams Family. It is a remake of the original television series episode of the same name.


The Addamses are selecting stuff to donate to the charity auction. Wednesday donates Marie Antoinette. Morticia tells Uncle Fester to donate his iron maiden, but he can't bear to part with it, so he hides inside. When the charity refuses Gomez' offer of a time machine, he donates Pugsley's tiger-head clock instead, much to Pugsley's annoyance! He climbs up the chimney and sulks until Gomez and Morticia each go to the auction to win it back, but they are distracted when they see each other and another bidder wins it. The auctioneer opens the iron maiden and people bid on Fester! Back home, Lurch surpises everyone by bringing back the clock, after the tiger ate the winning bidder.
