Fungi and its fragmentary fossil history

I have a question about the history of fungi.  Scientists today believe 
fungi are more closely related to animals than they are to plants.  
Characteristics of this group seperate it into it's own kingdom.  Is it 
possible that fungi are the first animals to evolve on our planet?  Does 
anyone have any thoughts on this subject?
