Walk of Fame Says Chimp's a Chump!

6/19/2008 2:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Legendary chimp thespian Cheeta's chance to have his name permanently etched on the Walk of Fame has just been shot down. What a load of ape dump!

The 76-year-old chimpanzee actor, who's starred in flicks like "Tarzan" and "Bedtime for Bonzo," didn't receive enough votes from the Walk of Fame Committee to have a star placed in his honor in '09.

If Cheeta's not good enough, who is?? Apparently Tinker Bell. That lame ass fairy is getting a star. And we're sure that has nothing to do with the fact that there's a Disney store on the Walk and the "Tinker Bell" movie is coming out in the fall.

Oh yeah -- and the Village People got one too.

Has he ever been busted for DUI, possesion, tax evasion, or been charged with wife beating (although I hear he used to bite Jane), or any of the other things the stars are getting tagged for now? Look at the crop of up and comers the committee is going to have to choose from! These new stars are making monkeys, excuse me, chimps out of them selves why not take the real thing that probably has never done nothing more that through his s#@t at the paps?

Snow White has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. In front of where they shoot Jimmy Kimel Live (or the Roosevelt Hotel, I can't remember). The Geiko gecko will probably get a star before Chetah.
