Cheeta turns 74

Seen here (left) with his Tarzan co-stars, is Cheeta in his heydey as a Hollywood star in the 1930s and 1940s.
On Sunday, Cheeta, the world's oldest chimpanzee, celebrated his 74th birthday. Retired from acting, he spends much of his leisure time painting.

You can read more about him, and the refuge he lends his name to

Happy birthday, Cheeta!

That's amazing! I never knew chips could live that old. He's a darn good artist too!

I've been good, thanks! I was actually 'away' for a while in a clinical study to make money. Go here to see what I mean - www.pracs.com

Basically I got paid a lot of money to be a human lab rat. I'll be posting regularly on my blog really soon!
