J. Fred Muggs

Is he still alive? I read, a few years ago, in the Off-Beat News in World Almanac that he was apparently still alive, although certainly in no condition to appear on TV. (He co-hosted the original Today Show with Dave Garroway almost 50 years ago.) Granted there are few chimpanzees who live that long…
(In the satire in Mad at the time, the last panel shows Muggs in Garroway’s chair, signing off with Garroway’s hand signal…the caption says, “BY GEORGE…WE’VE WARNED GARROWUNWAY TO WATCH OUT”)
