Cheetah Of Death No Longer.
I'm sad to report that aged chimp, Cheetah, of Tarzan fame has passed away at the age of 80. For an always informative obit, check out the Wonderblog.
I'll always remember an appearance on Letterman by then 75-year old Maureen O'Sullivan who recounted an amusing anecdote of the simian. "Cheetah bit me whenever he could. The [Tarzan] apes were all homosexuals, eager to wrap their paws around Johnny Weismuller's thighs. They were jealous of me, and I loathed them."
This is just a tad racist, but funny.
Sweet, sweet WWII propaganda:
Let's all raise a glass and salute one of the greats!
