Homer the Spider - THE ADDAMS FAMILY

Homer was the personal pet of Wednesday Thursday Addams (Lisa Loring), the somber little daughter of Gomez (John Astin) and Morticia (Carolyn Jones) Addams who lived in a bizarre gothic mansion.

Once Wednesday wrote a poem about her spider. It read:

My spider's quite a busy roamer
Which is why I called her Homer.
She may not jump or twist or bend
But a spider is a girl's best friend

Morticia: Hello Wednesday, darling. Come and see the new pet [a horse] we have for you. Do you like him?
Wednesday: He's very nice but I'd rather have a spider.
Morticia: A spider or a horse, darling, what's the difference?
Wednesday: But I'd rather have a spider!
Gomez: Alright, a spider it is. A beautiful black widow spider! Well, back goes Rover. [Pats horse] Sorry old man.

-- Episode No. 41
