The holidays didn’t pass by without tragedy. Cheetah, the beloved chimpanzee from the Tarzan films of the 1930′s and 1940′s, passed away on Christmas Eve from kidney failure. Known for his easy charm, winning smile, and knack for losing himself in a role, Cheetah was arguably one of the most famous animal actors in Hollywood’s rich history.

Apart from his acting accomplishments, Cheetah also holds the oldest non-human primate record in the Guinness Book, living to reach the age of 80. The normal life expectancy for a chimpanzee in captivity is 35 to 40 years of age.

He spent his golden years at the Suncoast Primate Sanctuary in Palm Harbor, Florida alongside aside a myriad of other retired film and zoo animals who had no place else to go. You can donate here if you would like to pay your respects and help better the lives of these animals.

Another Earth Day, another documentary from Disneynature – this year it’s one entitled African Cats. But you’re not interested in cats, are you? No, chimpanzees are way more interesting animals – well, you’re in luck! Attached to African Cats is a trailer for next year’s Disneynature documentary, Chimpanzee. It’s about a three-year-old Chimp named “Oscar” due to his grouchy disposition and proclivity for taking shelter in garbage cans.

The release date, of course, is Earth Day 2012, also known as End of Earth Day. I gotta say, if the world’s going to end, I don’t think I want to spend it watching a documentary about an adopted chimp. I think I’ll watch Terminator 2 instead.
