Addams Family Wiki

"You most certainly are good for something - we just don't know what it is."
-Gomez to Itt

Cousin Itt is a relative of The Addams Family in the original television series and beyond. Unlike the other main characters, he was not created by cartoonist Charles Addams but by a producer of the show.


People outside the Addams family normally can't understand him, although in one episode of the sitcom, Morticia and Gomez taught Cousin Itt to speak in an understandable voice.[2]

Cousin Itt did not live in The Addams Family Mansion with the main characters but did have his own bedroom in the attic. When he visited, he liked to spend time in the chimney.

Cousin Itt drove a three-wheeled car: a Messerschmitt KR175.[3]
