Abbott and Costello on Hollywood's Walk of Fame

Abbott and Costello have a combined six Stars on Hollywood's Walk of Fame and if you ever wondered where they were, wonder no more. The Los Angeles Times has articles which locate each star on the Walk of Fame including Bud and Lou's six. Check out the stars locations at the two links below:

The Hollywood Walk of Fame is a sidewalk along Hollywood Boulevard and Vine Street in Hollywood, Los Angeles, CaliforniaUSA, that serves as an entertainment museum. It is embedded with more than 2,000 five-pointed stars featuring the names of not only human celebrities but also fictional characters honored by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce for their contributions to the entertainment industry. The Walk of Fame is maintained by the self-financing Hollywood Historic Trust. The first eight stars were dedicated in September 1958 and placed in the sidewalk on the northwest corner of Hollywood Blvd. and Highland Ave. They were installed several months prior to the official 1960 Walk of Fame ground-breaking so as to be ready when the new, twelve-story First Federal Savings and Loan of Hollywood building was completed, in January 1959. On February 9, 1960, Joanne Woodward became the first performer to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, at 6801 Hollywood Blvd. (synopsis from Wikipedia)

6 stars? I didn't know this! I would guess both of them had one for each: TV, radio, and films.
