Trivia: Originally, Lurch was supposed to remain mute for the entire show. In the pilot, when the bell is first rung to summon Lurch, Ted Cassidy ad-libbed the line, "You rang?" This caused everybody to burst into laughter and from then on Lurch would talk.

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.
