The Rugrats also have a star on the Wall of Fame, but you don't see anybody else making a thread about it.

Anyway, Donald Duck deserves it, since he was one of favorite Disney characters.  It is long over due.  Do Rocky and Bullwinkle also have a star?  How about the Simpsons?

No. But they absolutely should. I mean, Rocky and Bullwinkle are cartoon legends. And yes, the Simpsons should also be on the Wall of Fame.

Wait? Donald Duck has to wait 70 years before getting a star on the Chinese Theatre front walk, while it took Jim Carrey only like 2 movies?

You know, I was tempted to make a thread about the Olsen Twins getting a star but then I remembered that nowadays almost everyone has one and people usually don't really care.

Maybe, we could use this thread to discuss, who do we think should get a star on the Walk of fame.

They got their star back in 1998.

EDIT: Well, technically, they got the actual star in January 2000 as part of their 10th anniversary celebration.

I dispise Mickey & his Crew but I'm proud of Donald. Donald was the only one of the group who couldn't stand to see Mickey get the attention. But than he becomes jello.

Now if Billy West had a star for Futurama, that would be dseomthing I really would care about.

No offense Donald but the only Disney movies that I'd kill for are Lasy & the Tramp, The Aristocats, my ultimate fav, 101 Dalmatians, etc. I'm so getting upset with Disney. They've disappointed me one times way too many!

But than the Dalmatians and all of the rest of the Disney animals will seek revenge, they have it coming. Oh lord do they have it coming!   evil laugh

that would be cool but odds are, with the way people ignore Futurama, Billy West would be honored for Ren & Stimpy.  Futurama would get a minor mention.  Unless, Billy himself were to say something about Futurama or bring something to the ceremony to get more people to know about Futurama.

Other than that, I'd picture the reporter saying...

"Billy West is honored for playing voices of some of the most memorable cartoon characters, such as Ren and Stimpy and Bugs Bunny.  West also did voices for Simpson's creator, Matt Groening's sci-fi cartoon, Futurama."  And that would be it.

Jicannon he has done nothing wrong, unlike you who are just spamming by not posting on the topic concerned. You might not like the thread but it is in the correct place and is a lot better than many thread ideas I've seen.

On the subject; it rather surprises me that it took so long for Donald Duck to get a star, given that cartoon characters can get them.

I suppose I was wrong. Donald is a cool character. Not as popular as Mickey, but much cooler than Daffy.

Don't diss the Rugrats, man, they were a gret show from 1991-1995, then they became more kiddy in 1996-2004. Plus,
From the most opoular Rugrats site:

Editorial for 2/25/2002 

Futureless Futurama
Good news, everyone -- Futurama has been renewed for the 2002-2003 season on Fox.

But now, here's the bad news.

Futurama's future beyond 2003 is in doubt, as it's likely that Fox will cancel the show.

For those of you not familiar with Futurama, here's what it's about. In the first episode, Phillip J. Fry, a pizza delivery boy, falls for a joke when he delivers pizza to a cryonics lab in New York City on New Year's Eve, 1999. Realising that this was a joke, he starts to leave, but ends up falling into a cryonics chamber, where he was frozen for 1000 years. When he was thawed out, he was in a changed world, trapped in a future he never made. Since then, he became a delivery boy for an interplanetary delivery service, Planet Express, run by Fry's distant nephew, who's about 150 years old. The show was created by Matt Groening, creator of The Simpsons.

What does Futurama and Invader Zim have in common, besides the fact that they're both sci-fi cartoon shows? They both weren't given a fair chance to prove themselves.

But in the case of Futurama, they'll be given time to show the remaining shows.

Futurama's ratings didn't look good not because of its time slot (7PM ET), but because of what comes before it 5 months out of every year -- NFL football.

In the eastern US, according to an NFL-dictated schedule, many stations show a late 4PM game. This game rarely ends before 7PM ET. And when it does, Fox often joins another late game in progress, just in time for the closing minutes of that game. Because of this, the game coverage usually ends at 7:30PM ET, just in time for King Of The Hill. Futurama ends up pre-empted or, in rare cases, joined in progress. And because of football, eastern markets with no late game, and all western markets, show repeats of Futurama until December, when new, but still pre-emptable, episodes begin.

When Futurama started in January 1999, the show had a great timeslot -- 8:30PM ET, between The Simpsons and The X-Files. But in March, Fox had another new show that wanted that time slot -- Malcolm In The Middle. Malcolm became a big hit for Fox, while it's touch-and-go for Futurama at its new 7PM ET timeslot. And outside of football season, it also has to contend with CBS's 60 Minutes and Dateline NBC. But it was football that really did Futurama in.

What can you do about it? Simple, write or fax Fox -- check the web for addresses.

If Fox officially cancels Futurama, then it'll be another nail in the coffin for decent animation shows for the entire family.


Anyway, on a lighter note, we're talking about Donald's star because he's getting it/got it recently, were as the Rugrats got their's back in 2001.
