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.
