Tarzan's Chimpanzee Cheeta Celebrates 74th Birthday

Tarzan's chimpanzee star Cheeta celebrates with a cake his 74th birthday in Palm Springs, CA, on April 9, 2006. Cheeta, famed for his appearances in the 1930's and 1940's Tarzan movies starring Johnny Weissmuller and Maureen O'Sullivan, turned 74 years old today and remains the world's oldest living primate. He lives happily at the C.H.E.E.T.A Primate Foundation in Palm Springs, California, a home for primates who have retired from the movie industry and the show business.
