Gomez and Morticia are delighted by Grandmama's Halloween tale, which events took place forty years ago. Grandmama talks about a man who went golfing on Halloween night, and was struck by lightning, which lost him his head. He then re-appeared as the Puttergeist: a mean man with a huge golf ball for a head who scares the town at night. Wednesday and Pugsley don't believe in the Puttergeist and go trick and treating with Thing and N.J. When Wednesday uncovers Uncle Fester as a Puttergeist impostor, her remaining doubts are confirmed: Puttergeist does not exist. So when the real Puttergeist shows up, attempting to scare and capture her, she is not feeling scared. While escaping with a golf car, it is revealed that Mr. Normanmeyer is the Puttergeist. He explains that the myth was started by his grandfather. N.J. is initially upset that the Puttergeist is not real, but he appreciates that his father continued the act for so long, just to please him. Moments later, the real Puttergeist drives along, confirming his existence.
