Felix Silla, the actor best known for playing Cousin Itt on The Addams Family, has died. Silla's longtime friend Gil Gerard — the two were starred together on Buck Rogers in the 25th Century for two years — reported the news on Twitter Friday afternoon, saying the actor lost a years-old battle with pancreatic cancer. He was 84.

I saw so much of this man during my younger days. From Cousin Itt (couldn't see him back then) to HR Puffinstuff to Star Trek to Buck Rodgers and Battlestar Galactica.

I had no idea he was on Buck Rodgers or HR Puffinstuff.

I remember as a kid going down to the Omni where the World of Sid and Marty Croft was to see all the characters.

Man. Memories.

84 is a long time to live. I'm hoping to make it to 70.
