"Tarzan" Chimp Cheetah Dead at 80

Posted: December 28th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Tarzan" Chimp Cheetah Dead at 80Submit Comment
Cheetah, the world's oldest and most famous chimpanzee, who appeared as comic relief in Johnny Weissmuller's "Tarzan" movies of the 1930s, has died at the Suncoast Primate Sanctuary after suffering kidney failure. He was 80 years old.

The chimp acted in the "Tarzan" movies from the 1932 to 1934. "The Sanctuary's residents and volunteers would like to thank all of the community members for their continued support as the Sanctuary continues to expand on the legacy [of Cheetah]," the Sanctuary's website stated.

Cheetah was acquired in 1960 from the Weissmuller's estate. The Suncoast Primate Sanctuary served as a retirement home for the chimp, as well as other Hollywood animal extras.

Cheetah's 75th Birthday:

Amazing news, Alex. A chimp. From the 1930s. And he's dead. Cool. Wake me when the guy that did that thing back in 1922 dies, ok?

I heard yesterday it may be in doubt that this was actually the same monkey that was in the Tarzan movies. Either way, he's dead. Which is good. Because I like monkeys about as much as some people like clowns. And don't even get me started on monkeys dressed up like clowns!
