Ken Weatherwax 1955 - 2014

TV News

STARBURST is sad to report that former child actor, Ken Weatherwax who played Pugsley on THE ADDAMS FAMILY television series has passed away, aged 59.

Puglsey was always getting into mischievous trouble in and out of the Addams household always presenting his trademark solemn, “What me?” look. That was part of his charm we all loved. Though THE ADDAMS FAMILY brought him fame, it was the only role he ever played, continuing with his education instead.

Mr. Weatherwax turned to work behind-the-scenes, employed as a set builder and grip working for several studios and television shows.

At autograph conventions, fans would line up for his signature as he graciously signed with a smile along with anecdotes from the show.

Our heartfelt thoughts from STARBURST and our readers go out to his family and friends.
