Cleopatra the plant - The man-eating plant owned by Morticia Frump Addams (Carolyn Jones), the wife of eccentric millionaire Gomez Addams (John Astin) on the bizarre sitcom THE ADDAMS FAMILY/ABC/1964-66.

Morticia feeds Cleopatra - THE ADDAMS FAMILY

Cleopatra was an African strangler plant whose main diet was chunks of red, fleshy meat (Cleo's favorite food was Zebra Burgers and Yak meatballs). Morticia grew Cleopatra from a seed.

The overly aggressive plant was always snuggling up to the family's visitors who didn't realize the plant's apparent affection was really Cleopatra's way of sizing up her next meal..

On episode No. 47 "Portrait of Gomez" (12-10-65) Cleopatra the plant ate Morticia's favorite photo of Gomez. Morticia's other plants included Roses (for their thorns), hemlock, henbane, and poison Ivy.

On the 1998 revival series THE NEW ADDAMS FAMILY on the Fox Family Channel, Morticia could be seen sprinkling "Wonder Weed" to enhance the growth of her weed garden.
