Jackie Coogan was born to vaudeville parents and was appearing on stage before he was four years old. Charlie Chaplin spotted him one night and chose him for the role of "The Kid." Jackie was an immediate favorite of moviegoers and went on to become one of the most popular child stars of all time. As an adult, he was best known for his role as Uncle Feser in "The Adams Family."  He also appeared in the science fiction cult favorite "The Space Children," which featured several popular child stars of the late 1950's.
