    Cheetah the 'Tarzan' Chimp
    Dead at 80



    Cheetah the chimpanzee -- who reportedly played Johnny Weissmuller's sidekick in the 1930s "Tarzan" films -- passed on to the great jungle in the sky last week after suffering kidney failure ... this according to the primate sanctuary that he called home.

    The chimp outlived Weissmuller by one year.
    Weissmuller was 79 when he died in 1984.
