Same. Google says capuchin monkeys only have lifespans of 15-25 years so this one must be nearing it's time.

edit: Correction. Apparently their lifespan is 50 years if in captivity. Damn the wild is a quick life for a monkey.

Seriously! I feel sorry for these poor animals being forced to be in films/shows their whole lives. They should be free. It's sick that this poor monkey has been working since the first season of friends or even before that. Why can't they use CGI or something.

Still remember the shitty script for the movie of this that was floating around. They really had Torricelli and 355 drive off into the sunset while 99 problems played over the end credit

This monkey was made before they started using plastic parts en masse. Monkeys these days have parts that fail all the time so you're forced to buy the warranty. It's a scam. #buyamericanmonkeys
