Morticia, the Matchmaker is the eighth episode of The New Addams Family. It is a remake of the original television series episode of the same name.


Cousin Melancholia's fiancee ran out and left her, so she shows up at the Addams' house, despondent. They try to find her another suitor, but are unsuccessful; the mailman zooms off, Lurch wouldn't agree, Uncle Fester only dates criminals, and Thing fingers off. However, the unwilling Ralph Harvey, trying to save his law firm's account with the Addamses, is coerced into dating and getting engaged to Melancholia.
