In recognition of his outstanding contribution to acting and the movies, the WRMC hereby appoints Cheeta its inaugural fellow, and awards this special Golden Willy for Lifetime Achievement. His thrilling adventures together with his humorous ape companion, Johnny Weissmuller, will continue to bring joy to future generations as they have in the past.

Unfortunately Cheeta could not be with us today, as he is working on location on a film inspired by the Tetley tea advertisement series. The award was presented by Rin Tin Tin the 12th and accepted on Cheeta's behalf by Champion the Wonder Horse Jr. Many stars were in the specially invited audience, including Lassie the 15th, My Friend Flicka, Benji, and Joan Rivers.
