The Addams Family

Morticia and the Psychiatrist - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When Morticia is watching Gomez and the trains, at the second of the collision and explosion, it's a re-use of the shot when Mr. Hilliard is there, as in just a split second, you can see him, then there's Morticia again.

Green-Eyed Gomez - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: As Fester talks with Gomez, he has a fork in hand that has a small chunk of meat on it. In one quick take, there is an entire meatball on it, then a moment later, it's a small bite again.

Trivia: Although it was kept a secret for years, the part of Thing was performed by Ted Cassidy. He sometimes had to travel to the studio to do it, even if Lurch wasn't in the episode. Though in a few episodes, where both Lurch and Thing appeared in the same shot, assistant director Jack Voglin performed the part of Thing.

Trivia: Although everybody knows all of the Addams Family members' names, none of them had their now-familiar names when Charles Addams created them for the New Yorker magazine. It was when the idea was pitched to the television executives that the names were created. Coincidentally, the Addams Family and The Munsters debuted the same week, and were cancelled the same week two years later.

Show generally

Question: Ted (Lurch) Cassidy was a total of six feet nine inches tall. A number of times, especially in Season 2 Episode 6, "Cousin Itt's Problem", it seems the top of his head barely clears to top of the door jamb. Were the doors seven feet tall back then?

Movie Nut

Chosen answer: Being that this was filmed in a TV studio, the set would have been specially designed and built to accommodate Cassidy's height. Also, I live in an older house (100 years-old), and all the inner and outer doors are eight feet tall.
