Full Title: Performing Chimpanzee Zippy riding a bike
Celebrity/ event: Zippy & the Ed Sullivan show
Story behind the Image:
On August 2, 1953 Zippy the Chimp made his Ed Sullivan Show debut by riding his bike in circles around the stage. The act was such a hit with the audience that the chimp would return multiple times over the next few years. Another classic Zippy the chimp performance occurred on April 9 1961. That evening, Zippy came on stage in roller skates and a sweatshirt that read “ZIP”. He showcased his roller skating skills by skating backwards and jumping through a hula-hoop. Upon finishing the act Zippy took off his own skates and took a drag from a cigarette. Besides The Ed Sullivan Show, he also played the role of Cheetah in the Tarzan movies and appeared in numerous television commercials.
This image forms part of a series of images, shot by LIFE when Zippy was at the height of his fame in 1955.
