Parody of a Hollywood "tell-all" biography purported to be written by the chimpanzee animal star, Cheeta, who supposedly played opposite Johnny Weissmuller in Tarzan films, Ronald Reagan in Bedtime for Bonzo, and Rex Harrison in Dr. Doolittle, and survives to paint in retirement in Palm Springs. (Research has established that the chimp's first owner was known to be a teller of tall tales and that this chimp was not one of the many different chimps that were used in those films.)

Without a doubt - "Me, Cheeta" is an amusing and equally clever "tell-all" biography-parody that is purported to be personally written by the most famous (and most intelligent) chimpanzee in the entire history of Hollywood movies.

As you'll soon find out - Not only did Cheeta star in numerous Tarzan movies with famed actor, Johnny Weissmuller - But he also hobnobbed with more members of Tinseltown's star-studded royalty than you could ever imagine possible.

(Yes. You'll be totally starstruck, for sure)

Written with plenty of biting wit and candid honesty - "Me, Cheeta" gives the curios reader an intimate, behind-the-scenes look at all the glitter, all the glitz, and all the silliness of Hollywood Heaven like it has never been written about before.

This entertaining "chimp's-eye-view" biography also contains a 16-page photo gallery, as well.

A satire on Hollywood written! by Tarzan's chimp. A little too long but very funny.
