Plot Summary[]

On their way to the Metropolitan Museum, The Addams Family picked up two men headed that way. They're the ground crew for Professor Orville Byrd's balloon in the Transcontinental Balloon Classic from Central Park in New York to Griffith Park in Los Angeles. The Nasty Brothers had sabotaged them, so they're glad to get a ride back to the race, but they can't handle the ookiness and flee before reaching the park. Gomez volunteers his family and camper to be the professor's new ground crew. With the help of Ocho, Ali, and Mr. B, they evade sabotage after sabotage by the Nastys, passing over Yellowstone and Death Valley on their way to the finish.
