TRIVIAL PURSUITS: Which Fictional Characters Have a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame?

There are 17 stars for fictional characters on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

In 1978, in honor of his 50th anniversary, Mickey Mouse became the first animated character to receive a star. Other animated recipients are Bugs Bunny, Donald Duck, Woody Woodpecker, Snow White, Tinker Bell, Winnie-the-Pooh, Shrek, the Rugrats, and the Simpsons.   

Other fictional characters on the Walk include the Munchkins, two Muppets (Kermit the Frog and Big Bird), one monster (Godzilla), and three non-animated canine characters (Strongheart, Lassie, and Rin Tin Tin).   

The star inscribed Charlie Tuna honors the long-time radio personality (real name: Art Ferguson) and not the animated advertising mascot, so I didn’t count that one. The Muppets will receive a collective star in 2012, making Kermit and Big Bird the first fictional characters with two stars.
