Lurch is the shambling, groaning, eight-foot tall Frankenstein-like butler to The Addams Family. He tries to help around the house like any other butler, though occasionally he botches things up due to his great size and strength. Besides a headless doll named Marie, he is the best friend of Wednesday Addams .
Surprisingly, he is often seen playing the harpsichord with a great degree of skill. Gomez or Morticia can summon him with an ever-present rope. When pulled, it produces a loud gong noise that shakes the house, to which Lurch will always instantly respond (generally with the line, "You rang?"). Much of Lurch's history, including his last name or the nature of his relationship to any other Addamses is unknown.
