Cheeta Needs A Star

Monkey News!

Reposted from YesButNoButYes.

There are various reports today saying that Cheeta, the 76-year-old star of the Tarzan films, did not receive enough votes to merit a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2009.

This injustice will not stand.

Here is a list of characters that do have stars; Godzilla, Mickey Mouse, Rin Tin Tin, Lassie, Donald Duck, Big Bird, Snow White, Bugs Bunny, The Simpsons and Kermit the Frog. Most of them aren't even real.

Earlier this year, The Munchkins from "The Wizard of Oz" were honored on that famous walk. Walking dead Ozzy Osborne has a star. So does Britney Spears and Pee Wee Herman.

Cheeta needs our help.

An online petition has been set up in the hopes of bringing attention to this travesty. See it here. I have signed her, you should do the same.

In addition, an "interview" with the great ape can be seen here.

God speed Cheeta.
