On Friday, April 16, 2021, Felix Silla died. While Felix had several other roles in television, he is best know for playing Cousin Itt on the wacky show, “The Addams Family.”
Before Saturday, when I read the news, I can’t recall ever having heard the name, Felix Silla. However, I have many memories of Cousin Itt and of enjoying this crazy character while growing up. The picture above was taken at the Rend Lake Visitor Center when we camped there in late October 2019. Even though I was all grown up at that point, I happily said, “Hey Dan, look! It’s Cousin Itt!”
Thanks, Felix, for all laughs, and may you rest in peace.
