The phrase "(and perhaps comprises entirely)" seems to refer to body as the enactor and the hair as the subject, when trying to imply the other way around. Suggest (and perhaps is comprised entirely by) 75.38.15.36 23:05, 3 May 2007 (UTC)

Cousin Itt was indeed created by Addams. He is shown in a New Yorker cartoon on the telephone: "This is it speaking."

I believe he was created by Addams, as well. I've seen the same cartoon in one of the compilations and it is noted as being originally published before the series premiered. I can't remember the dates for certain and I don't personally own any compilation(s) it appears in. I had checked it out from the university I graduated from.
Levy probably did have the most input, aside from appearance, in the character, though. As far as I am aware Addams only provided descriptions and names for the major characters. The character Ophelia, for instance, was possibly inspired by one that frequently appeared in the cartoons, but that particular version was never noted as Morticia's sister nor did she look much like her whereas in both live-action shows they were identical (played by the same actress), but not twins.

Mzellers 03:51, 4 October 2007 (UTC) The cartoon, with the caption "This is it speaking" appeared in the New Yorker, October 12, 1963 (according to the CD which accompanies The Complete Cartoons of the New Yorker, ISBN-13: 978-1579123222). This predates the premiere of the television show by about 11 months, although it is possible that the idea for the character emerged in the course of the creation of the television series. The cartoon shows Cousin It, without the bowler he wore in the TV series, facing away from the viewer on a telephone. Note that in the caption, "it" is not capitalized, implying that the character wasn't originally named "Cousin Itt".

Cousin Itt`s son "What"[edit]

In the sequel "Addams`s Family Values" Cousin Itt marries and has a son named "What" how is "What" related to Pugsley Wednesday and Pubert???? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.80.106.105 (talk) 21:02, 15 July 2008 (UTC) Simple if Gomez Fester and Cousin Itt are first cousins then Pugsley Wednesday pubert and "What" are second cousins to each other.

"What" is a little joke. No more! How Pubert is a joke! He disappert later and nobody remember him. Cousin It is single. He is an "Schameur" and flirts with girls. he is not a husban in the Tv serie and not fahter, too! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 87.164.65.16 (talk) 20:57, 25 September 2008 (UTC)
