Cheeta the chimpanzee leaving home for a ride in an electric car driven by owner and caretaker Dan Westfall. Cheeta, believed to be the world's oldest living primate, was thought for a long time to be one the chimpanzees that appeared in the 1930's and 1940's Tarzan movies starring Johnny Weissmuller and Maureen O'Sullivan. Cheeta, a male chimpanzee, now 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.
