We can only imagine the kind of joy you would feel if your star was the first star to appear on the Walk of Fame but sorry to disappoint, the Hollywood Walk of Fame doesn’t have one person created for the first star instead when the Walk of Fame was created eight stars were placed at once which means eight people share the honor of being “first.”

7.      Not All Stars Belongs to Humans
Winnie the Pooh, Mickey Mouse and even the Simpsons have a star on the Walk of Fame and this simply implies that not only humans are awarded a star all sort of characters even animals are given a star on the Walk of Fame.
