Tinker Bell, Disney's newest star, received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Tuesday. The ceremony near Hollywood's El Capitan Theatre coincided with the DVD release of the new film "Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue." Tinker Bell was first introduced to the public in J.M. Barrie's 1904 play "Peter and Wendy" and joined the Disney family with the 1953 animated film version "Peter Pan". In more recent years, Tinker Bell has become more of a star in her own right, headlining several films where she leads a band of fairies on various adventures.

Tinker Bell isn't the only cartoon character to receive the honor of a star. Some of these recipients include Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Snow White, Winnie-the-Pooh, Kermit the Frog, Big Bird, and Bugs Bunny.
