What wood was used to make Harry Potter’s magic wand? How about Voldemort’s wand?

In 1978, Happy Days creator Garry Marshall asked his young son Scott, who didn’t watched his dad’s show, what would make him tune in. Scott didn’t like sitcoms, but he loved Star Wars. So he answered, “If it had a space alien in it.” Marshall ordered his staff to write an episode about an alien. After auditioning more than 20 people, he gave Robin Williams the part when he sat on a chair upside down. Mork, and Williams, then got their own show, Mork & Mindy, which ran for four seasons.
