Cheeta the Chimp Campaigns For a Star on the Walk of Fame!

Will seven times be the charm for Cheeta the chimp? This famous monkey is once again petitioning the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce to give him a star in 2009. Star of the 1967 comedy Dr. Doolitte and the Tarzan movies, Cheeta would become the first monkey to hold this honor.

Inclusion on the Hollywood Walk of Fame will not only give recognition to one of the international, animal megastars of all time, but focus attention on his fellow primates in the wilds of Africa who now face extinction.

Although he retired in 2003, the talent has eight movies under his belt, and a Guinness Record for being the oldest living chimp born April 9, 1932! He's up against some 200 other contenders for about 24 stars but I believe in lucky seven – I already signed Go Cheeta!

Sure why not give it to him. There are other animals on the walk of fame. And just look at all the untalented human beings that have been given stars right now on Hollywood walk of fame. So many of them do NOT need to have a star.
