Animated Film Characters on The Hollywood Walk of Fame

Classic Cartoon Film, Television and Book Characters with Stars on the Walk of Fame ....

Mickey Mouse, Snow White, Bugs Bunny : Cartoon Costumes

Consider the stars in Hollywood Walk of Fame. As of the writing of this page the only cartoon/animated characters with stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame are Tinker Bell, Bugs Bunny, Donald Duck, Mickey Mouse, The Rugrats, Shrek, The Simpsons, Snow White, Winnie the Pooh and Woody Woodpecker. 

If you're on the Walk of Fame in Hollywood you may be surprised to see Mickey Mouse. Maybe even more surprised to see The Simpsons! Walk of fame cartoon? These characters would be most well-known in animated form though they may be seen in live-action once in a while as well. Included you'll find the Hollywood Walk of Fame address for each star.

With the recent releases of Snow White inspired feature films Mirror Mirror with Julia Roberts and Snow White and the Huntsman with Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron, will Snow White and movie-inspired costumes be hot this Halloween? Through it all, Princesses will always be very popular costumes for young and old. Make the costumes your own. Learn the stories, the backstories.

I have a separate page, currently being updated celebrating the animals with stars on the Walk of Fame. That page also talks about other animal characters with stars featured on another page. Those stars belong to famous dogs, Rin Tin Tin, Strongheart and Lassie. Also included on that page are Godzilla and Muppets Kermit the Frog and Big Bird.

These aren't best known as being animated though they may be seen on film or TV in animated form sometimes. The characters are Godzilla, Kermit the Frog and Big Bird.

One Walk of Fame star is inscribed Charlie Tuna. This is in honor of the long-time radio personality, whose real name is Art Ferguson, not the animated advertising mascot.

~ Mickey Mouse ~

6925 Hollywood Blvd.

The anthropomorphic mouse has evolved from being simply a character in animated cartoons and comic strips to become one of the most recognizable symbols in the world. Mickey is currently the main character in the Disney Channel's Playhouse Disney series "Mickey Mouse Clubhouse". Mickey is the leader of The Mickey Mouse Club.

Mickey Mouse (short for Mitchell Mouse) is a cartoon character who has become an icon for the Walt Disney Company. Mickey Mouse was created in 1928 by Walt Disney and UbIwerks and voiced by Walt Disney.

In late 2009, The Walt Disney Company announced that they will begin to re-brand the Mickey Mouse character by moving away from his pleasant, cheerful image and reintroducing the mischievous and cunning side of his personality.

Snow White and the Seven Dwarves Forest
Snow White (in German Schneewittchen) is a fairy tale known from many countries in Europe, the best known version being the German one collected by the Brothers Grimm. 

The German version features elements such as the magic mirror and the seven dwarfs, who were first given individual names in the 1912 Broadway play Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and then given different names in Disney's 1937 film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

The story of Snow White and the dwarfs should not be confused with the story of Snow White and Rose Red (in German Schneeweichen und Rosenrot), another fairy tale that was also collected by the Brothers Grimm.
In the Aarne-Thompson folklore classification, tales of this kind are grouped together as type 709, Snow White. Others of this kind include Bella Venezia, Myrsina, Nourie Hadig, The Young Slave and Gold-Tree and Silver-Tree. "The Jealous Sisters" is another Albanian fairy tale. In both fairy tales the death is caused by a ring.

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs 1937. It was the first full-length animated feature, filmed in Technicolor. A Smile and a Song.

The opening of the 1978 film Grease does a take-off on the animated Disney film, Snow White when it introduces the Olivia Newton John character of Sandy.

In the many non-German versions, the dwarfs are generally robbers, while the magic mirror is a dialog with the sun or moon. In a version from Albania, collected by Johann Georg von Hahn, the main character lives with 40 dragons. Her sleep is caused by a ring. The beginning of the story has a twist, in that a teacher urges the heroine to kill her evil stepmother so that she would take her place. The origin of this tale is debated; it is likely no older than the Middle Ages. In fact there are possibly two Albanian versions of Snow White: one where her stepmother tries to kill her, and another where her two jealous sisters try to kill her.

Ravenna Adult Costume Snow White & the Huntsman costume.

Costume wigs are very budget-friendly and the materials used and the quality can vary. The Queen Ravenna Adult Wig has received some of the best customer reviews that I've seen of any mass produced retail costume wig. 

Costume wigs aren't made with the quality those sold for everyday wear and
Queen Ravenna
definitely not custom made wigs. This wig may be worn with our without the crown and the style is just right for other characters.

Remember a wig cap (sold separately) to hold in your own hair

I like these costumes because they may also be used for other characters, for instance for Good & Evil or the Black and White costume party.

The Queen Ravenna Finger Cuffs: Each finger cuff features a trio of ring bands connected by a delicate chain with an attached sculpted claw design that covers your fingernail. Includes two finger cuffs. Your favorite of the two-finger, full finger rings or knuckle rings, many hinged for comfort would work well for this effect and you could wear them after the party.

When choosing Snow White costumes, consider the Gothic Snow White and Dark Snow White Costumes especially if you have tweens or teens in mind. Choose a poisoned apple prop for your wicked little chef to go with the Annoying Orange.

Bugs Bunny Cartoon Revue
1963 Poster
April 30, 1938 is said to be the real start of the Bugs Bunny that we know today.
A rabbit with some of the personality of Bugs, though looking very different, first appears in the cartoon short Porky's Hare Hunt, released on April 30, 1938. It was co-directed by Ben "Bugs" Hardaway and an uncredited Cal Dalton (who was responsible for the initial design of the rabbit).

A Wild Hare, directed by Tex Avery and released on July 27, 1940, is widely considered to be the first official Bugs Bunny cartoon. It is the first short where both Elmer Fudd and Bugs are shown in their fully developed forms as hunter and tormentor, respectively; the first in which Mel Blanc uses what would become Bugs' standard voice; and the first in which Bugs uses his catchphrase, "What's up, Doc?"

Bugs Bunny is an American fictional character who starred in the Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies series of animated films produced by Leon Schlesinger Productions, which became Warner Bros. Cartoons in 1944. In 2002, he was named by TV Guide as the best cartoon character of all time. Bugs starred in 163 shorts in the Golden Age of American animation, and made cameos in three others along with a few appearances in non-animated films.
-- Wikipedia information on Bugs Bunny

Voices behind Bugs Bunny: When Mel Blanc died in 1989, Jeff Bergman, Joe Alaskey and Billy West, among others, became the new voices of Bugs Bunny and the rest of the Looney Tunes. Here are a few facts on each of these men.
On or around July 30, 2010 Bugs Bunny turned 70 years old!

Created and conducted by Emmy Award-winner George Daugherty, Bugs Bunny at the Symphony II combines the magic of the symphony with the fun of cartoons, featuring famous Looney Tunes shorts, such as What's Opera, Doc? and The Rabbit of Seville.

From the Wolf Trap press release: Leader of the Looney Tunes, Warner Brothers biggest superstar and "America's Sweet-hare," Bugs Bunny has starred in 4 feature-length films, 21 prime time television specials and hundreds of beloved animated shorts.

This show is excellent for all ages, and is an utterly delightful way to introduce anyone to the symphony!"-The Flash List Wolf Trap Opera Company.

His catchphrase is a casual "Eh...what's up, doc?" usually said while chewing a carrot.
