Cousin Itt

Cousin Itt is the most enigmatic of the many Addams Family cousins. The three foot tall mass of hair normally sported sunglasses, gloves and a small derby on top of itt's... on itt's top. Cousin Itt spoke in a high squeal which was understood by the family members, but rarely anybody else.
Cousin Itt has his own miniature room within the mansion, where he stays when he is not off galavanting with the women ( gossip abounds as to his abilities with the ladies!!). He has the distguishment of being the only Addams to actually work in 200 years. As such he has been an opera singer, an actor, a zoo director, a zoo attraction, a magician and many other carreers too numerous to mention in one sitting.

Cousin Itts best traits are his cuteness and his family ties. Of all the cousins, it is apparent he is the favorite of the family.

Felix Silla and his Alter Ego

Tony Magro

Born; unknown

Tony Magro is one of those magical people behind the scenes who gets absolutely no credit whatsoever for their work. So why is he in the section under Cousin Itt's Biograhpy? Well, because he is the true owner of the voice that is so widely recognized ( but not understood.) Tony played with a few ideas before recording himself talking fast and speeding it up. As Magro states in "The Addams Chronicles", I envisioned some guy that would be spitting his words out because hair would be in his mouth. I fooled around with that idea and the producers liked 'the fast rat'."
Tony has sound effects credits on tv's "
Mr. Ed" and the movie "Fast Times At Ridgemont High"
