Happy birthday Cheeta - 74 today!

"Cheeta retured in his 30’s after his last performance opposite Rex Harrison in 1967’s “Dr. Doolitle.” Since then, he’s enjoyed a quiet retirement. He’s taken some time to paint some “ape-stract” artwork, kept in the National Museum in London and homes of celebrities.

In his younger days, Cheeta was known for his penchant of beer and cigars, but his years in showbiz has taken a toll. Now a diabetic on a special diet of fresh fruit, vegetables and monkey chow, he takes insulin daily. His birthday cake will also be diabetic friendly."
