Ken Writes About The Addams Family
I was seven years old when the show began and it ran for three years and was honored with top ratings in the early 60’s. As I remember my days on the set, I recall a very low budget for special effects (so therefore several people were called upon to play the part of “The Thing!”). I also recall using lots of fishing line and dry ice! My mother was required by law to be on the set with me as well as a Social Worker who was there to protect me as a child actor, and to oversee my education which amounted to 3 hours daily from a workbook. I remember very long days of 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. This show ran for 3 years, and was cancelled in 1964.
