Summary

Wednesday is invited to the school science fair. Her family is there watching her. She is confident about her project. She uses Uncle Fester as a sample, mixing DNA with Socrates. Fester eats everything. Wednesday gives him a Rubik's Cube without the DNA and he ate it, but with the DNA mixed, he didn't eat it. She sees the other kids' projects and thinks they're lame. The graduation begins, and she thought she was winning, but the announcer says, "As long as you tried, you get a prize!" It makes Wednesday ask, "How will you win if nobody is losing?" Everybody ignores that, with the science fair going out of control, and so her family goes home with her.

Fireflies fly over some tombstones and over to Wednesday's window for her to put in a jar. Wednesday is with Socrates in her room, where she has stuffed toy dolls of her family, and she encourages to turn heads starting with Pugsley; she twists the doll and it makes Pugsley's head twist really hard too. Fester comes to visit Pugsley, asking if love hurts; he saw him swinging horribly with the ladies at the science fair, so he suggests to Pugsley to read his new book called The Fester Method How to Woo and Other Tips on Love. Fester explains his book has been self-published online but not easy to do; he's been on three first dates, asking who else has that kind of experience. Grandmama blows the horn, calling the kids and everyone downstairs for dinner. Fester smacks Pugsley with the pillow and runs down, when an octopus tentacle appears, making him trip and fall down the stairs, rolling towards a wardrobe and falling through a ceiling coffin when he reaches the dinner table joining in with Gomez and Morticia.

Morticia, Gomez, and Fester sit at the dinner table waiting for the kids, Fester suggests that they shouldn't wait on Pugsley since he's got a lot of homework too, Gomez suggests that they should at least wait for Wednesday until Ichabod delivers a message to them explaining that she won't be attending the ritual master cation, not that she's not hungry, she just chooses to spare herself agony on her performance. Gomez decides to go try talking to her but the note says she doesn't want him talking to her, then Fester would almost go up to bring her a plate at least which Wednesday also doesn't want. When Wednesday and Pugsley don't come to dinner, their parents worry about them. Gomez thinks the family isn't close enough, so he comes up with an idea about them all taking a 3-week road trip all around America. They take out the old Addams Camper to travel in, but Wednesday doesn't seem to find it satisfying. Gomez tells Wednesday it's time to go and for some family bonding whether she likes it or not, he shows them around the interior of the camper where it will bring them all together closer than ever before, she responds "Or there will be no survivors." Before they leave, a strange-looking man known for himself a lawyer named Mustela comes to them saying, "A girl here named Wednesday Addams was switched with another baby when she was born; the father found her and decided to take DNA of her to see if she was his daughter." The parents say that Wednesday is an Addams and start the trip.

The Addams Family leave Grandmama in charge while they're away but decides to throw a party like the house says and decides on making money. The family have already started their vacation and Gomez takes out a map showing a list of destinations they will be travelling to, but with Mustela hiding behind a billboard, he follows them on their adventure still trying to get his hands on Wednesday or else he along with Pongo will both be fired. During the road trip, Fester sits in the front seat with Thing driving, making weird loud burping sounds in his opera he wrote in the bath, he says he's been taking a lot of baths recently until he suddenly spots a sign showing octopus eyes being attracted to all that beautiful water, the family is supposed to go to Salem until Fester comes in to forget it and change plans going to Niagara Falls instead. As the day comes, Gomez gets mad and is surprised at Thing asking how it all happened when they're supposed to be in Salem, but Thing points to Fester explaining to Gomez that it was his idea, and Fester tells Gomez not to get mad as Niagara Falls is the great wonder of the world and kills the most tourism, with the powerful seductive water that gets Fester so tempted with octopus eyes. Gomez asks Fester if he's feeling all right and not being his usual creepy self. Fester pulls out an octopus tentacle out from his sleeve replacing his left hand, Gomez sniffs it and tells Fester to put it in the fridge as seafood turns very quickly. Wednesday is busy looking through the telescope seeing Canada answering Morticia's question, her mother suggests going to a vintage store wanting Wednesday to try out a more mature look, but Wednesday's own black dress is a classic and is just as happy the way she is. Gomez comes over to greet his daughter which Wednesday twists one of his fingers saying he knows how she feels about hugs. Fester spends time with Pugsley until they spot 2 girls walking by and Fester suggests that it's the perfect opportunity trying the moves in his books. Pugsley pretends to hurt his knee only to fall for one of the girls but find him funny asking if he got that for a book. Fester is surprised until Wednesday comes by to embarrass him with the doll of him he's got, she uses it to make him dance in front of everyone with song "Jump Around" playing, then she throws the doll over the cliff causing Pugsley to fall in the water face first too. Gomez gets a bunch of barrels ready just as Mustela approaches, so Gomez hides Wednesday in one of the barrels and kicks it over the waterfall, Gomez quickly jumps in the barrel himself with Fester joining in with Mustela without a barrel. Mustela quickly swims away calling for Pongo, which takes care of that. Fester asks where Pugsley is until he finds a doll he calls a tiny floating person, then Fester squeezes the doll and he makes a big groaning sound just until he finds Pugsley. Gomez is happy with how great it was asking Wednesday about surviving, which is another thing they got in common. After the Addams Family's visit at Niagara Falls, they continue their vacation on the road.

Grandmama is at busy at home with party making money, but gets a little out of hand and people almost asking for refunds.

The family hits their next stop in Sleepy Hollow, New York where they go camping in the wood having a fire and telling scary stories. Gomez tells a horrifying story about Pugsley which he doesn't find funny at all, while Wednesday is out in the woods with Kitty, she comes back and then Fester tells the story about her when she was born, it takes place with him at the hospital where he goes looking for a bathroom after eating all of the patients' pudding they left behind but accidentally takes a wrong turn in the hospital nursery, he tries looking for the light but accidentally turns on kids music and him making all the babies cry, but he spots his little niece across from him he runs over to see her, but overhears the babies still crying and gets kind of fed up with them, he didin't know what to do until he came up with the idea with the the Addams Family hospital nursery trick, he grabs each baby and juggles them but not correctly in the same beds with their names on them, after they stop crying, he stops juggling and leaves the nursery with his little niece Wednesday just when a baby falls on the floor and the door closes, the flashback ends and that was Fester's story, Morticia and Gomez are surprised at his story and immediately get up taking Kitty for another walk in the woods even though Wednesday already did it. While Gomez and Morticia leave, they put Fester in charge and Fester wonders if he can juggle actual children, he tells the kids to bring it in, because they never know unless they try. While Fester is too busy juggling Pugsley. Morticia and Gomez take a walk down by the creek figuring out if Mustela is right, he won't give up until he takes Wednesday away, but Gomez threatens to let him come as he pulls out his sword, Morticia just can't bare for them to find out that Wednesday might not be their daughter, but Wednesday is hanging upside down almost listening to everything her parents say, she rides Lurch across the pond talking about her misplaced in her infancy.

The Family wakes up and starts a new day on their next adventure, they stop at the beach in Miami, Florida, and relax their for a while until Cousin Itt shows up, which shocks Fester, but he says that if Itt's allowed on the couch then so is he. At night, Pugsley sleep walks taking a big ham out of the fridge for Kitty and talks in his sleep while Thing is busy driving, but almost doses off to sleep but tries to stay awake focusing on driving, but it becomes way too hard for him but almost getting into an accident causes him to stress out so he takes a big sip of coffee and stays awake longer to keep concentrating, he drives through a long tunnel leading to daytime where the Addams Family hit San Antonio, Texas by the next day. Fester argues with Itt calling him a fuzz face. Wednesday sits at the table with Itt and has a conversation with him. With Thing still driving, he spots Mustela and Pongo through the mirror trying to get Wednesday, but Gomez and Morticia won't allow that, so Gomez suggests a fun family travel game gathering everyone around the table, Morticia picks punch buggy and Lurch punches Mustela in the face through the window and lands on Pongo where they get into an accident landing in cow poop, and after that, Gomez has the perfect place for everyone to hide, he grabs the steering wheel and makes a sharp turn where they all go flying into a billboard crashing through it and back on the road. The family reach the city and stop at a hotel called The Ala Motel, when Mustela shows up again, they run inside the motel and a lady comes to greet them with a pageant called Little Miss Jalapeno Pepper, Gomez gets Wednesday to join the play which he has no courage or interest, so Gomez walks up to the front desk to ask for some disguises. Wednesday explores the dressing room backstage where a little girl named Peggy comes to ask what her talent is, she replies that she can read mind but Peggy doesn't believe that she can so Wednesday proves it to her but finds it frightening, after Wednesday reveals Peggy's name, she runs away out the door to the stage. The Addams Family come in the gym with their disguises and watches Wednesday perform with the little girls until it becomes the last straw where she takes out her blade and throws it up to a rope cutting open for red paint dumping all over the girls. Mustela arrives and finally catches Wednesday on stage due to the Family's cheering, so they all escape quickly. Wednesday is mad at Gomez for embarrassing her, so after they get gas, they reach the Grand Canyon as the next place. Fester has an accident leaking ink finally thinking he got off diapers, so he runs inside the building to the bathroom to go clean himself up. Gomez thinks it's puberty Fester is having, except Fester finds the bathroom and begins to not be feeling so well, his head starts aching, his tentacle fights him, pokes him in the eye, then his right hand disappears and turns into another tentacle, he needs privacy, but in the meantime, The Addams Family is outside where Cousin Itt leaves and takes off in his airplane, then Pugsley goes exploding with things that Gomez won't tolerate with.

Wednesday is outside looking at her necklace until Mustela finally shows up but steps in her pranks with a rope pulling him by the leg, then Cyrus calls her on the phone and asks her what happened with Mustela. Wednesday responds she let him go. She sneaks over to Gomez pulling out his hair from his nose and his head, then uses it to test the DNA, and figures out that it's true, she's not an Addams. Wednesday knew the whole time something is wrong, and she eventually runs away, the next morning. Pugsley gets excited being the only Addams but Fester tells him that's too soon. Fester asks if it was the hospital thing not being a big deal. Gomez blames himself, because if she had just felt closer to him, none of it would ever happen. Wednesday walks in the woods until Lurch secretly follows her but she already know he's following her, she thinks that he should go back to his family, but realized that he's not an Addams either, so she just lets him join her on her way to Sausalito, California. The Addams Family agree to go to Sausalito themselves getting Wednesday back. Wednesday and Lurch hitchhike through Death Valley all the way to Sausalito until they find tough bikers on motorcycles coming, they stop at a bar called Lurleen's and the bikers are on their way to Sausalito themselves. When Wednesday and Lurch finally reach Sausalito, they find Cyrus's house, then figures out that Cyrus is her father, he greets Wednesday to Ophelia that's a pig, and his wife Ingrid a blue heron, he gives her a tour around his lab until The Addams Family show up. Wednesday and Cyrus go outside to greet them. Everyone goes except Fester looking extremely sick so he just tells them to go ahead without him as he needs to stay behind in the camper to lay down and rest, so he faints and closes the camper door with his octopus tentacles while the rest of the Family go up to see if Wednesday's there, Thing rings the doorbell which Lurch smashes and answers the door asking "You Rang?" slowly. Gomez makes it clear that they came to rescue Wednesday, but she asks rescue her from what. Gomez notices that Cyrus is the man from the science fair and has been reanimated. Cyrus says that Morticia and Gomez aren't Wednesday's parents, he is, Wednesday calls Morticia by her real name making her surprised and shocked. Also she warns Gomez saying before he does anything rational, she shows him the results that prove that she's not their daughter, at first she was Addams, but now she's Strange which makes Pugsley happy but Wednesday immediately tells him to zip it. Gomez is shocked not believing it's true. Ophelia rolls in the mud until she finds Pugsley so attractive and they both fall in love with each other. Wednesday tells her father to forgive her, but Gomez says that he does forgive her, but she actually meant Cyrus. Gomez doesn't like it at all that she doesn't mean it, he tells her to come home with them so they can try talking about it in the camper. Wednesday apologizes to Gomez that she can't leave with him but is more happy to offer them shelter for the night, say goodbye the next day. When Morticia and Gomez find pictures of Wednesday doing everything with Cyrus in 6 hours. Gomez begins to cry after losing their little girl. Ophelia calls Pugsley over to bring him upstairs to her room. She asks if he's hungry but says he's always hungry, she keeps a secret chute filled with all kind of pastries, cookies, muffins, cinnamon rolls and eat digging in using their faces which they say is a lot easier. Pugsley asks Ophelia where she she's been all his life and she says the farm, but he didn't hear her clearly but when he asks again, Ophelia scares him with her pig face and Pugsley yells scarcely. Morticia says Cyrus is lying but Gomez thinks negative it's no use and Wednesday is gone, but Morticia angrily tells Gomez to pull himself together as he's an Addams just as Wednesday is whether it's in her blood or not. Pugsley comes in to show them Ophelia and Ingrid that are animals but think they're not people, Cyrus overhears that Pugsley's right, they're animals, but sometimes revert to their original form. Cyrus uses a strong gas to put the Addams Family to sleep. Wednesday is surprised finding her real family in danger almost used in an experiment from Wednesday's experiment at the science fair. Wednesday only meant to show how Fester's intellects can be improved, but Cyrus explains that she can improve the rest of her ex-family, but she says they don't need improving as they're fine how they are except maybe Pugsley. In each of the tubes, the green goo rises and Cyrus leaves Wednesday to do the honors, but she refuses, she finally admits that even though Cyrus is biologically her father, everyone is still her family, The Addams Family, but Cyrus won't tolerate it and pulls the trigger himself. Cyrus is disappointed in Wednesday, but insults with being a silly little girl. Wednesday threatens Cyrus to turn off the machine and won't tell him again, but she does ask if he has a piano nearby, and Cyrus is furious to ask why he would have a piano in a laboratory, she calls Lurch, and he calls Pongo, but Lurch and Pongo don't hurt, they hug each other out as they're actually friends, so they team up to kill Cyrus instead, Wednesday explains the flashback back in Texas where Pongo makes Lurch assume that she was in trouble, after the story, the 2 guys fold Cyrus up and play with him like a basketball, then Pongo kicks him hard and breaks the glass to free The Addams Family. Suddenly, Cyrus wakes up and finds green goo falling on him, the Family gets out and Wednesdays asks Morticia and Gomez if they're all right, and they are. It's not over as Cyrus is officially a giant rooster monster with pointy antlers, then he gets really serious about killing Wednesday and the rest of her family, but is quickly saved by Fester coming in to protect his family, he's not himself as he's turned into a giant octopus monster, so Fester and Cyrus fight between each other to settle everything once and for all, Fester grabs Cyrus by the legs and pulls him in the water and drowns him hard while they fight underwater with Fester inking up the tank, he breaks the glass with his tentacle causing everyone to run and they get washed over the ledge and both Fester and Cyrus fall, but Fester has had the courage to grab hold of the ledge saving his fall and pulling himself back up, but gets all tuckered out, for Cyrus, he keeps falling until he dies landing on 2 people one of them asking to marry each other. Wednesday checks in on Fester and says he's dying, she blames herself admitting it's her fault, Wednesday is curious about the necklace Morticia gave her and asks what she meant by it being apart of every Addams, Morticia explains that it contains a drop of blood for every Addams born in the family, Gomez, Pugsley, Wednesday herself, including Fester she says, it gives her a great idea to save Fester from dying as it might just save the day, she calls Lurch to turn on the system, then she pours the blood in the experiment to create a magic needle to put inside Fester, then he begins to shrink back to his old self, but everyone thinks he's dead, but only temporarily as he burps, then he sits up asking if he won, Wednesday answers his question, he did win and laughs, she tells Pugsley that Ophelia is feeling better too, and has become an ordinary girl, then Ophelia and Pugsley finally reunite and continue their friendship together. Wednesday apologizes to her parents and mentions that she never wanted to be an Addams, she struggled with feeling different but realizes that feeling different is the most Addams-y thing there is, Gomez points out that different is what the extra D in Addams stands for but Wednesday thought it stood for dismemberment, she asks her parents to forgive her, Morticia tells Wednesday that she is and always be their little ghoul, she thanks her mother as the feeling is mutual. Wednesday surprises Gomez with a hug and tells everyone that they should all go home which they do. The Addams Family end their vacation and go home. Grandmama explains that all she did was invite a few people over until things got a little bit out of hand, but Gomez and Morticia aren't mad at all, they're actually surprised with the party being a homecoming present. So Grandmama just tags along and says "Welcome Home!" So the Addams Family go inside to Party while Cousin Itt singing karaoke, a kid yells to Cousin Itt that they love him but Fester still doesn't understand a word he says, meanwhile, he sees Ophelia and Pugsley dancing with each other and Fester joins in. Gomez is right about the vacation bringing the Addams Family closer than ever before, and Morticia calls a wonderful father, Wednesday is having a trouble situation, she knew that Cyrus lied about being her father, when she tested out Gomez's hair at the Grand Canyon, it explained conclusively he wasn't her father either, But Gomez tells her that he suffered a little accident with an napalm experiment a few years back and lost his beautiful beautiful hair, and then splutters, so he had to replace it with real Sasquatch fur, but he assures Wednesday that he's her father for sure, now and always, even forever, he begins to hug her but twists his finger again where she already hugged him once, because it's quite enough affection for a life time, so Gomez sits down on the couch telling the rest of the Addams Family that it's time for them to start planning the next family vacation like a trip around the world, if they think of it, everyone glares at him as the movie ends with screen projector films of The Addams Family hand-drawn animated travelling to all different countries and then do 1 more finger snap to end the movie with a goodbye.
