A hateful neighbor who had previously rained on some of the Addams' cherished Halloween beliefs has now told Pugsley and Wednesday that there is no Santa Claus. They arrange for Uncle Fester to drop through the chimney, but he gets stuck, leading to a succession of less and less convincing Santas, courtesy of the family members.
Unsurprisingly, the sometimes way-off attempts to play Santa do not fool the kids at all, and when Uncle Fester (who had gotten soot blown on him from below) finally falls through, the kids are grateful but wish the real Santa could have come. To their shock, a very traditional (non-Addams) tree and gifts suddenly appear, replacing their idea of decorations, with the real Santa having snuck in and done this while their backs were turned. They then join and sing "We Wish You a Merry Christmas" as the episode ends.
