Is the Simpsons' cat called Snowball?
Yes, one of them was. I updated my previous post with your new score.

Well, for the Addams family the definition of pet is perhaps a bit different. I would surmise that Thing can be considered a pet as well as Cousin Itt, the latter at least having a pelt.
If memory serves I believe they had a lion called Kit Kat, and an octopus or a squid but I can't remember the name. Wasn't there also a meat eating plant? Could that be considered a pet?

The Simpsons had a mail order dog called Laddie for one episode I think. Does that count?

The lion was called Kitty Cat
Octopus was Aristotle
Plant was Cleopatra

Wednesday had a spider collection but I don't know if any had names.
Morticia fed piranhas in a fish tank but don't remember if they had names too.

Amazing that you remember those. I do remember Uncle Fester and Lurch but I can't for my life recall the grandmother's name.

Thing and Cousin Itt are definitely people, not pets.

But a point for the lion, Kitty Kat. I'll allow Kit Kat as close enough.
I really need to octopus's name.

I don't usually count plants as pets, but I'd need the name.

Too slow for Kitty Kat, but yes to Aristotle and Cleopatra.

Two points.

I'd need names for Wednesday's favourite spider, and the two piranhas to get points. (One each for the piranhas!)

Bold families have all the pets named, unless you can come up with something that I've forgotten.

5 points to Bilbo1967

1 point to norway 1456

I think there are still at least three points left in the game. I'll give the answers this evening. It's neck-and-neck!

The Simpsons also had a Snowball III and Snowball V. There was one between them called after a jazz player who's name I can't remember at the moment (don't think it's Bleeding Gums Murphy?), who was also considered to be Snowball IV.

Yes! Three points to orlok. I'll accept Snowball IV, although also known as Coltrane. Snowball V is also known as Snowball II, to save buying a new dish. Previous post updated.
