Who is Cousin It?
Cousin Itt is the diminutive cousin of Gomez Addams. Whilst the other members of the Addams Family were originally comic strip characters created by Charles Addams and featured as a one panel gag in The New Yorker, Cousin Itt was created especially for the TV Show.
In the Addams Family TV Show, Cousin Itt appeared in a total of 19 episodes and was played by Felix Silla, except for the last two appearances which were portrayed by Roger Arroyo.
The 1991 movie The Addams Family, saw John Frankin in the role of Cousin Itt who also supplied Itt’s voice.
Where does Cousin Itt Live?
Cousin Itt does not live in the Addams Family home, but is a frequent visitor, especially whenever there is a family gathering. When Cousin Itt comes to visit he has his own room in the attic. Everything in the room has been scaled down for his convenience. When not in his room, he can usually be found hanging about in the chimney which is also the way he enters and exits the house.
Cousin Itt Costume
The Cousin Itt Costume worn by Felix Silla in the TV show came in two parts. There was a head piece that came down to his waist and a bottom section like a hula skirt that extended from his waist to the floor. The hair was combed and carefully positioned so it looked like one seamless suit.
Although Cousin Itt’s hair suit was originally made from real human hair, due to the potential fire risk on a TV set, this was eventually exchanged for synthetic hair. This made the Cousin Itt Costume a whole lot safer and also lighter for Felix Silla to wear.
What is under the Cousin Itt Costume
Gomez once asked Cousin Itt what was underneath all the hair. Cousin Itt replied “roots”. However, we know different. Underneath his Cousin Itt costume, Felix Silla wore all black clothing including long black gloves.
Cousin Itt’s Voice
In the Addams Family TV show, Felix Silla had no lines, as cousin Itt’s voice was dubbed post filming and provide by sound engineer, Tony Magro. Cousin Itt’s voice is high pitched and generally unintelligible to anyone who is not an Addams. On one occasion, Morticia and Gomez trained Cousin Itt to speak more slowly and with more rounded tones. The results led to Cousin Itt being recognised as an acting talent, and futher more, having an IQ of over 300.

Cousin Itt Costume
Of all the hairy wee monsters we can think of, Cousin Itt has to be the most civilised. Over the years, Itt has tried his hand at a number of professions: opera singer, actor, zoo keeper to name but a few. He may not have found his niche in the world of gainful employment, but come Halloween he is never short of requests for personal appearances.
Now you can put in your own personal appearance as the hair with the hutzpah, the character with the coif, the original ‘it’ person, Cousin Itt. This all encompassing Cousin Itt Costume is quick to put on and quick to remove.
This Cousin Itt Costume consists of a sleeveless tunic, a hat with ‘hair’ attached and a pair of sunglasses. Made from 100% polyester, the tunic is a pullover and is covered in multiple tiers of synthetic hair. The bowler style hat has synthetic hair around the inner circumference which hangs down.

Cousin Itt Costume for a Child
Cousin Itt is 3ft 11″ tall. We know this because the actor who played Cousin Itt in the original Addams Family TV show, Felix Silla, is that exact height. Being a diminutive character, Cousin Itt would make a great costume for a child, especially in a group with others portraying Gomez and Morticia. It is particularly a great costume if you get a kick out of not being recognised.
This Officially Licensed costume contains everything you need for a Cousin Itt Costume. Primarily, the costume is a pullover sleeveless shirt with simulated hair that extends down to the floor. The simulated hair consists of strips of nylon. The hat that accompanies this outfit has attached pieces of hair which flow over your shoulders. There is also a pair of black glasses in the style worn by Cousin Itt.
Optional Child’s Long Black Gloves
Underneath his Cousin Itt Costume, Felix Silla, the original Cousin Itt, wore long black gloves. To complete your Cousin Itt Costume in the style of Felix Silla, why not add a pair of long black opera gloves? These feel marvellous to wear and continue the feeling of anonymity for the wearer. They are also sure to come in handy for other occasions too.
