Cheeta, Tarzans famous chimp sidekick who has since become a famous ape-stract painter has been repeatedly overlooked for a star on Hollywoods Walk of Fame, and on the same chimp coin, the beloved band The Monkees havent been able to climb into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
And with a petition and auction running now through the end of November, LuxuriaMusic.com is trying to get the primates both real and rockin the credit they deserve.
Station DJ Becky Ebenkamp says, Cheetas had a career spanning seven decades, and hes been in major motion pictures. Even fake animals like Bugs Bunny and Godzilla have stars. Godzilla, Im so sure! I mean, did he even show up to his ceremony?
And while Ebenkamp sings The Monkees praises, her human heart lies with the chimps cause.
She says, If Ryan Seacrest can have a star, then Cheeta deserves one too. Its a very dubious distinction being Ryan Seacrest!
