"Thing" question. Was there a "Thing" in any of the Addams cartoons, before the TV show?

I have this, along with The Addams Family board game from the 60's. No Uncle Fester light bulb however.

Yes.  Thing first appeared in the 1950s cartoons.  I think the original Thing was not a disembodied hand, but an unseen horror which had a human hand, the only part of it tolerable to look at. 
If you want to view Paradise, simply look around and view it.

Thanks! I couldn't remember if I'd seen him in any of the old cartoons. Maybe it was Cousin "It" who first appeared in the TV show?

That is correct.  "Itt".

MPC in the mid-sixties released a fabulous set of Daffy Daddy-Ohs to compete with the Marx Nutty Mads:

The Mad Mad Mad Scientist Laboratory is among the very toughest monster related items from the 1960's to find in Mint-in-Box (new old stock/warehouse find) condition. The set was so over-the-top fabulous that I can't see any kid just putting it on a shelf instead of breaking it open and trying out the various experiments.

There was a sign "Beware of the Thing" that appeared in the strip, and the phonograph with human hands in one cartoon. There are some who think the figure which peered between balustrades in the staircase in several cartoons may have been the thing. The TV series defined the characters and relationships to each other, and since the TV series debut, Thing is defined as a hand.
What ever happened to my Transylvania Twist?

Magazine ads for a Shock Monster mask such as this one which ran in Warren magazines back in the 1960's have made the Shock Monster's handsome visage among the most iconic in all of monsterdom:
 


Here are some great pictures of the Collegeville Shock Monster costume:

The Philadelphia Chewing Gum Company released bright pink bordered Dark Shadows trading cards in 1968 and then lime green bordered ones in 1969. Here are scans of mine:









The Philly Gum Co. also issued Quentin Postcards in 1969. Here are scans of two from my set:
