This was, of course, long before it was a park. Eventually, a huge mansion was built beside a great tree; that tree was to protect the ances- tral graves from such evils as tourists and sunlight. As the curtain rises, autumn illuminates the Family Tree, and all is right with the weird world of the Addams Family. They've gathered to celebrate with their dead ancestors. But at the end of the celebration, the ancestors are surprised to find that their crypt is locked. Why? The family values Mrs. Koeher's Thank YOU'S are about to be tested.
