The First Cartoon Character To Get A Star On The Walk Of Fame Was?
Answer: Mickey Mouse
When it comes to cartoon fame, there’s well known and then there’s enduringly iconic. Mickey Mouse is one of the, if not the, best known cartoon character on Earth and it should come as no surprise that the first Hollywood Walk of Fame star to be awarded an animated creature of any stripe was dedicated to the Mouse.
In 1978, in celebration of the 50th anniversary of Mickey Mouse’s first animated appearance, the first star dedicated to an animated character was placed at 6925 Hollywood Blvd. Although several other animated characters were added to the Walk during the following decades, it was a long wait for old Mickey to meet a fellow cast member. In 2004, Mickey was joined on the Walk of Fame by his old mercurial friend Donald Duck.
