Morticia's Romance: Part 1 is the fourteenth episode of The New Addams Family. It is a remake of the original television series episode of the same name.


Gomez and Morticia are celebrating their 13th Anniversary. Wednesday and Pugsley ask them how they met, so they tell them the story.

Grandmama and Granny Frump had arranged for Gomez to marry Morticia's sister Ophelia Frump, for whom he had no affection. Morticia was to be married to Cousin Vlad. But Gomez and Morticia were love at first sight. Unable to bear the thought of being apart, they plan to kill themselves.

However Tish speaks French in the story, distracting Gomez' retelling of it. The end of the story will have to wait until tomorrow.
