Andy Devine Facts
He was awarded 2 stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, one for radio at 6258 Hollywood Boulevard and for television at 6366 Hollywood Boulevard.

Played Hap Gorman on the first season of the MGM/NBC TV series "Flipper" (1964).

His high-pitched, gravelly voice was the result of a childhood accident. While running with a stick (some accounts say a curtain rod) in his mouth, he tripped and fell, ramming the stick through the roof of his mouth. For almost a year, he was unable to speak at all. When he did get his voice back, at length, it had the wheezing, almost duo-toned quality that would ultimately make him a star. Another account of his throat injury says he was sliding down the banister in his father's hotel and somehow damaged his throat.
