Rocky is a cult classic boxing drama that had rocketed Sylvester Stallone to stardom. It tells a story of a working-class Italian-American boxer without any education or possibilities who turns his life into an American Dream story.
The film was such a huge success that it was made into two more sequels. The first Rocky collected $1.4 billion at the box office, becoming one of the most popular franchises in movie history.
Two of the most memorable actors from the film, besides Stallone, were adorable turtles, Cuff and Link. And you won’t believe it - they are still alive after more than 40 years!

Cuff and Link are still alive and thriving. Recently, Sylvester posted a photo with the turtles, letting fans know that they will star in another movie with him.
The actor wrote:
In CREED 2 with my original buddies from the first Rocky ... CUFF and LINK , now about 44 years old!
How cute are they!

Best scene from the movie involving Cuff and Link was when Adrian gave Rocky the dog, Butkus. Rocky asks Adrian, 'What does he eat?' Adrian responds, 'He eats little turtles!'— The92ers (@The92ers) 24 May 2019
We can’t wait to see Cuff and Link back on the screen.
