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.
