Kitty Kat the Lion - Full-grown African
lion on the bizarre situation comedy THE ADDAMS FAMILY/ABC/1964-66. Kitty Kat
is the cowardly family pet of Gomez Addams (John Astin), an
eccentric millionaire who lives in a museum-like mansion.
When Kitty Kat wandered through their home, he unwittingly
frightened all of the family's visitors. Most of the lion's
appearances were actually scenes from stock footage of the lion
walking down the main stairs or growling into the camera.
The lion was raised and trained by animal handler, Steve Martin.
On episode No. 60 "Cat Addams" (3-11-66) an ailing Kitty Kat is
examined by the doctor.
