 Morty Trivia:
THAT THING YOU DO:  Ever wonder whose hand was in the box on "The Addams Family?"   The credits say:  "Thing. . . . . . . . . .Itself ,"   but the truth is Ted Cassidy (Lurch) was on the other end of " Thing ".   When both Thing and Lurch were in the same scene, the assistant director,  Jack Voglin,  would,  well,  lend a hand.  Was Thing right or left handed?  In most scenes Thing is right handed,  but,  if you watch carefully,  you can spot a lefty here and there.  It was a good gig for Cassidy,  he even signed a separate contract to perform his handicraft.
