Wednesday Leaves Home is the tenth episode of the first season of the original series of The Addams Family. It first aired 20 November 1964 on ABC.


Wednesday is scolded for using Uncle Fester's blasting caps instead of her own and is grounded from playing with her pet spider Homer. She packs Marie Antoinette in her bag and plans to run away, but Pugsley convinces her to hide in his room instead.

When they discover her missing, Gomez and Morticia call the Police Department's Bureau of Missing Persons and reach Sgt. Haley. Before Sgt. Haley arrives Fester has found Wednesday hiding in Pugsley's Room. Morticia decides to use reverse psychology on Wednesday, who promptly runs away for real. She shows up at Haley's desk at the police station. He calls the Family, who insist Wednesday isn't really missing. Fester comes to collect Wednesday. Sgt. Haley is being driven crazy by the Family and runs away, unable to take any more!


Despite Blossom Rock being credited, she only appears in the opening and closing credits.
