Kit Kat the LionKitty 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.
