Keith Coogan is the grandson of Jackie Coogan, Uncle Fester on The Adams Family. Jackie Coogan was also the impetus for Coogan's Law, a law which protects child actors from being exploited by unethical parents, agents and show business producers.

All the money he had earned doing movies as a child were taken by his mother, who stated, unapologetically, "Any money Jackie made prior to the age of 21 is legally ours, we never promised him otherwise".
