Wally Cox was a noted American actor and comedian, best remembered for his memorable screen performances in the early years of television. He began his career as a comic performer at nightclubs before he landed a role in a Broadway play at the age of 26. Shortly afterwards, he began appearing on numerous radio and television shows. His small stature, tiny frame and high-pitched voice made him an ideal choice for comic roles. At 28, he became a household name after playing the titular role on the TV show ‘Mister Peepers’. He later appeared in many other television productions and game shows. Apart from TV, he was also seen playing character roles in around 20 films, earning praise for each performance. While his screen persona was that of a shy and timid man, he was actually quite intellectual and loved reading. Due to his close friendship with actor and director Marlon Brando, he was believed to be gay. However, the claim was refuted by his family.
