It's Hard Out Here For a Chimp

6/10/2008 5:27 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It is one of the greatest injustices ever perpetrated in Hollywood -- Cheeta the chimp is not on the Walk of Fame.

The legendary 76-year-old star (yes, 76) of "Bedtime for Bonzo" and "Tarzan" is on a one mammal mission to get his name on a star on Hollywood Blvd. Not only does he have his own website, the artistic simian is coordinating an online petition to get him on the Walk, publishing a book, putting a single on iTunes and starring in a new movie!

Kermit, Lassie and Godzilla have theirs -- give the chimp a chance.

Aw! That's so sweet! I think he should have his own star. How the hell can Godzilla have one? He wasn't even real! At least Cheeta is real AND intelligent. Wow. If there's a petition, I'll sign it.

Godzilla! Give me a break! Hit the word website and it will take you directly to Cheeta's site and you can sign the petition. He is undoubtably a wonderful part of Hollywood and it is shameful he has been over looked. You go Cheeta and by the way, Ungawa!

It's a sad day in Hollywood when Ryan Seacrest has a star on the Walk of Fame while this true talent is ignored.

I not only signed the petition, but I own one of Cheeta’s paintings!
