THE Spanky the chimp?? ;-)

I vaguely remember seeing an Ice Capades show in Virginia Beach when I was a small child. The thing that made the biggest impression on me was a Sherwin Williams sign that we passed (with paint pouring all over the earth) and the cheap plastic toy that my parents bought me and my brother that broke during the car ride home. I don't remember the skaters at all!

Was there also a something called Holiday on Ice? Never made it to Ice Capades, but I did see a couple of the Disney Ice shows at the Anaheim Convention Center in the early 80's.

Tokyomagic: There were shows called Holiday on Ice. Don't know if there still around. Never saw any of the Ice Shows. Except Hockey.

Major: Spanky the Chimp not as famous as Cheetah from the Tarzan movies. Did you know that Cheetah is still alive. He is 76 years old and lives with his trainer in Palm Springs. Amazing.
