LOS ANGELES (NBC/KNBC) - "Wizard of Oz" munchkin Jerry Maren put his hands and feet in the wet cement at Hollywood's famous theater, and then he sang.
Maren is 93 years old and one of the two surviving munchkins from the "Lollipop Guild" in the 1939 classic.
He was introduced at Wednesday's ceremony at TCL Chinese Theatre IMAX as the "oldest and smallest" person to ever receive the honor.
When Maren acted in the movie, he was 3-foot-4-inches tall.
