When I was 11 years old, my parents took me to see The Bounty, a magnificent reproduction of Captain Bligh's ship. It was in St. Petersburg, Florida.
When we got to the ship, the Flipper film crew was there with one of the Flipper dolphins. Also, Tommy Norden (Bud) was there. He was standing on black asphalt in his bare feet, and posing for pictures with girls. He kept pouring cold soda from a soda bottle on the ground, and standing in it to keep his feet cool. He looked older to me then, but I don't know his age.
In the TV show, the lower left rear window pane of the Bounty gets broken for some reason, but I don't remember why.
At 11 years old, Flipper and Bud were the first television stars I ever saw.
