Can you recite the Halloween poem from The Addams Family?

From witches to bats, there's no shortage of Halloween spirit in this classic poem.


When you add classic TV and Halloween together, The Addams Family certainly comes to mind.

In the season one episode "Halloween with the Addams Family," robbers end up at 001 Cemetary Lane. When the Addams family sees them hiding in the bushes (from the police), they have only one thought: They simply must be out trick or treating!

Without hesitation, Gomez invites the criminals in for a night of Halloween fun. Before any Halloween festivities can take place, including bobbing for crabs, the annual Halloween poem must be recited. 

Can you fill in the blanks to this poem? Even if it gets cut short, "no Halloween would be quite complete without it."

Good luck!

  1. It was Halloween _____
  2. And through the _____
  3. Not a creature was _____
  4. Not even a _____
  5. _____ are hung
  6. On the _____ with care
  7. To guide _____ witch
  8. As she _____ through the air
  9. And she calls out to them: Come _____, come flutter
  10. Come flapper and _____
  11. Come chitter come _____
  12. Come _____ vampire!

MeTV could do a quiz with their own classic poem like a spin on " The 13 Days of Halloween...."

9/12 Mostly guesses. I thought the skeletons would be hanging from the gallows.

8 of 12. Better than I figured I would do since, like some others, I didn't remember the poem. I raced through the quiz, too fast until I realized it seemed to be a gloomy parody of "The Night Before Christmas". I'll have to re-visit this episode!

All guesses. I remember the episode but not that there was a poem. I just tried to channel Gomez and what he might find delightful in a poem.
