From WENN:

Cheeta, the 76-year-old chimpanzee star of movies Tarzan and Bedtime for Bonzo is making his return to Hollywood after a four-decade-long hiatus. The ape's handlers have signed a record and DVD deal and announced plans to publish a memoir on his behalf.

Cheeta will take part in a music single available for download on iTunes. The record, a cover of the 1976 country-music hit "Convoy," will be released in conjunction with the promotion of his DVD—showing Cheeta on film as he drives a buggy and eyes a bikini clad girl.

This is potentially the best news since the Treaty of Ghent. We say this now, if there are ills in the world that can't be cured by an AARP chimpanzee ogling some cheesecake from behind the wheel of a dune buggy, we don't want to know about it.

The Soup Blog plans to follow this story very closely. Watch this space for updates on the release of Cheeta's single and DVD.
