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. The law was passed when Coogan discovered, at age 21, after years of working in showbusiness, that his bank account had been completely depleted. 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".
