Those flyboys keep getting the best of the King.

Tom Cruise could get a star on the Walk of Fame. Not so the simian, much to the surprise of De Laurentiis Entertainment Group, planning promo for its Christmas film, "King Kong Lives."

"It's disgusting--an outrage," said a DEG rep, who pointed out that the likes of Mickey Mouse, Bugs Bunny, Rin Tin Tin, Lassie and Strongheart have nabbed stars.

"We think King Kong is as big a star as they are. Who remembers Strongheart, anyway?" sniffed the rep. "Certainly Kong is on a par with Rick Dees and Ken and Bob."
