Bo (woof) In Commentary:

Monkey see, monkey do. That’s the explanation I come up with as to why a damn, dirty ape won’t keep his mitts off the honor of being on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Clearly driven by the sight of Lassie’s and Rin Tin Tin’s names between his toes as he peruses the shops on Hollywood Blvd, Cheeta the monkey actor is pushing to get his name put there as well.

(LOS ANGELES - Three stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame have gone to the dogs, so why can’t Cheeta the chimp get some love? The animal actor, whose credits include the 1967 comedy “Dr. Doolittle” and the “Tarzan” movies, is trying for the seventh time to get a sidewalk star and become the first monkey to get the honor....con't @http://boknowsonline.com/2008/06/11/monkey-business/)

Hmmm,. I wonder why Cheetah the monkey (chimp?) can't get any love?
Maybe Cheetah was a bad monkey.
Maybe not getting a star on the walk of fame is just to punish the bad monkey?
Gosh, I remember when I was bad, I would get spanked......

In a related question, why didn’t Tarzan ever marry? ;’)
