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.

Is Harvey related to him? I bet he could care less about a star. Give him a young cute girlfriend, he has earned it.

tossedsalad, Lets not forget Britney went out with K-Fed when Shar was pregnant with his child. I am not trying to talk bad about Britney but the facts are the facts.

**Please go to the site and sign the petition** The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce shoots down the request to give a star to Cheeta every year. The poor old guy has earned one!! For once, Hollywood, do the right thing! There are other things to think about in the entertainment world besides Kim Kardashian's A** and who had lunch at the Ivy on Saturday!! Woo-Hoo!!

What goes around will come around, Harvey    

I think that Harvey Levin should fire all of his writers and give Cheeta the job. It would be a huge improvement.

But then again, this would be the first time that someone higher on the evolutionary tree than Harvey would be working in the same office, and he'll be too jealous.

The chimp deserves the girlfriend. Harvey doesn't even deserve a chimp.

But we need to be careful! We'll have to get a preventive restraining order against Harvey on Cheeta's behalf.

I just have a hard time believing that this chimp is 76 years old and the chimp from Bedtime for Bonzo and Tarzan. Chimps live to be 50-60 at most. They could have taken any chimp and said he was Bonzo or the original Cheeta. That being said, he deserves a star because most, if not all, chimps in Hollywood are abused. I doubt human actors are beaten if they don't perform on cue. Check out www.primatepatrol.org if you want to know more.
