Bubbles was Michael’s famous pet chimpanzee in the 1980s until he became too big for Michael to keep any longer. He is now twenty-six years old and lives at The Center For Great Apes in Wauchula, Florida.
Patty Ragan, who founded the center, is keen for the public to learn more about the apes. “I would love for people to be aware of all the apes after they are too old for entertainment,” she said.
Officials at the Center would like pet-lovers to sponsor Bubbles, who costs about $15,000 to care for, with a $150 per year donation.

Recently Bubbles was seen in an Animal Planet documentary ‘Michael Jackson and Bubbles: The Untold Story’.
