Kenneth Patrick "Ken" Weatherwax (born September 29, 1955) is an American actor, best known for playing Pugsley Addams on The Addams Family television series.

After The Addams Family was canceled, Weatherwax found it difficult to get work in Hollywood (a common occurrence for child actors) and was typecast as Pugsley well into his teens. At 17, Weatherwax entered the U.S. Army. He makes appearances at conventions and still offers his services for acting jobs ranging from voice-overs to personal appearances.

Ken Weatherwax has been working behind the camera as a movie studio grip for a number of years. He is said to have worked as a set builder on movie lots from 1992-2002.
