World's Oldest Chimp, Tarzan's Cheeta, Turns 74

Eee eee eee!

Cheeta, who starred in 12 Tarzan movies in the 1930's and 40's, turned 74 on 9th April 2006.

Last year, on his 73rd birthday, he was named the world's oldest Chimp by the Guinness Book of Records.

Chimps usually live up to 40 in the wild or 60 in captivity.

To celebrate his 74th, Cheeta was awarded the first movie award of his life last weekend when he received an International Comedy Film Festival of Pensicola award.

Cheeta has taken up abstract art ('apestract'). The pictures are sold to raise funs for the sanctuary where he lives.
