The Addams Family read a report of a rare Boola Boola sighting in the Everglades. Wednesday thinks it's adorable, so they head for a pet shop in Miami to get one. Gomez pays the shop owner to capture the Boola Boola, but then decides to look for it himself. Its last reported sighting was at Black Lake, but by con men who catch animals for the pet shop. They kidnap and disguise Ocho the Octopus as the Boola Boola. Then, when the Boola Boola makes friends with the family, they kidnap it too. They return the animals for a double reward, but drop the money and run when frightened by Kitty Kat and Ali the alligator.
