Addams Family Wiki

The Addams Family Meets a Beatnik is the fifteenth episode of the first season of the original series of The Addams Family. It first aired 1 January 1965 on ABC.


A motorcyclist called Rocky has an accident outside the mansion. The Addams Family takes him in to recuperate. After seeing Kitty Kat, Marie Antoinette, and Cleopatra, he tries to leave but his leg still hurts. Morticia performs first aid with boiling oil, a stout rope, leeches, and the pillory in the play room. Eventually Rocky forms a reluctant bond with the family, and agrees to attend a reunion birthday party with his father.


  • Rocky's motorcycle is registered in the state of California.
  • When Rocky jokes that "Satan's coming to dinner," Wednesday says "That was last week."
  • When Lurch lets Mr. Cartwright in, he does not remove his hat as he does most guests. Cartwright does get a good look at Cousin Farouk.
  • Despite Blossom Rock being credited, she only appears in the opening and closing credits.
